About book: The book is not so much an introduction as a kind of a reference work. I read it from front to back, and it took a while before I realized that the reason each entry assumes some prior knowledge is because it is meant to be a kind of handbook. There is plenty here about how different scholars have interpreted certain figures, and that information usually prefaces the story summaries. Most helpful is a glossary with pronunciation guide in the back. I think a better place to start reading about Fionn mac Cumhaill, Cú Chulainn, Mad Sweeney, Dierdre, Rhiannon, and the rest of the Celtic gang is probably in the kids' section. Or maybe one of the books listed in MacKillop's bibliography, another great reason to have this title.
