Cunliffe's 'The Ancient Celts' is better than many things that are written about the Celts, but then that's not very hard. This book is fine as an introduction for someone that's never read anything about the Celts before, but it should also not be the only thing that one reads about them.
For a much, much better overview try John Collis' 'The European Iron Age.' It's a far more informative account and it focuses on the archaeological evidence in a reasoned, scientific manner. It has fewer glossy pictures and is more technical, but it is also very rewarding.

Prof Cunliffe has produced a beautiful syncresis of archaeological, linguistic, historical and literary elements in order to create a book which is a good introduction to Celtic Studies. Writing style is clear and concise and the narrative never gets bogged down in technical details, always offering readers the opportunity of continuing where he leaves off by providing good bibliographic information as well as the odd tantalising (and deliberate) loose end. His 'Celtic from the West' (edited) series are much more dense and academic but offer some brilliant new avenues of study for those looking for the most up to date opinions on the subject...
