The Megaws have become unpopular among academic circles recently for their views on Celtic ethnicity (it's a heated topic - see Simon James' 2000 book on the Atlantic Celts for the other side of the story). For that matter, the study of Celtic art is know seen as rather unfashionable.
However, this is one of very few recent books that actually deals with Celtic art in a serious way. First published (I think!) in 1979, it was a huge sucess. The new edition is pretty similar to the old, but there are a few important updates and changes.
Basically, you couldn't find a better general text on Celtic art. They are simply experts in the field.
The only problem I have with the book is that the illustrations are not as amazing as I had hoped they would be. They're good, but not fabulous. Still, it is an ureservedly good read.
