Read full description of the books:
If nothing else, this book is an excellent introduction to fairies, especially Celtic legends about fairies. The author pulls from ancient myths to modern movies to discuss the world of the fey, making an entertaining and diverse read. The book is easily one of the most well organized books I've come across on the subject, and I would strongly recommend it as a jumping on point for anyone wanting to learn about fairies and their kin.
Unfortunately, the book isn't perfect. When the narrative strays from Celtic creatures, the information can turn to hopelessly vague, or in some cases, downright offensive. For example, the author finds no problem with referring to Romani people as "gypsies" and states alleged facts about "the Native American culture," completely ignoring that there are over 500 federally recognized tribes, and they do not share unified practices or legends.
Bottom line, if you want to learn about fairies and mythological heroes without the headache of reading actual Celtic legends, this is your book! If you want something that discusses magical creatures and figures in multiple cultures with just as much authority, perhaps you should look elsewhere.
