Thorough, scholarly, beautifully illustrated . . . Sheds fascinating new light on Scotland's most enigmatic stone circles. --Current Archaeology
Detailed but never dry, this is a magnificently glossy tome for the coffee table but also for the back seat of the car as you seek out Scotland's ancient stone circles for yourself. --Scotland in Trust
A masterpiece of careful analysis . . . far better than anything that has been written on the subject before. It gives rise to ideas that may have an application far beyond the study area, and even beyond Scotland altogether. --Richard Bradley, The Prehistoric Society
