Simon James' overview of the Celtic Iron Age is a good read, and a solid 'first book' to read about the Celts. Better than Cunliffe's Ancient Celts, but I would always say that Collis' European Iron Age is the best overview out there.
However, James' book is an easy read and has lots of illustrations. Just don't make this the only book you ever read on the Celts, because you'll only get part of the story!
As an aside, James' book on the Atlantic Celts is another great title, and far surpasses this earlier effort.

An absolute must for all students of the "Celtic" world of the Iron Age as a starting point. It leads the reader from the end of the Bronze Age to the Roman Conquest and beyond, giving possible explanations for the changes, but leaving room for further developments. The subtlties of the subject are introduced without swamping the reader with detail and conflicting ideas. Beautifuly illustrated. This book iluminates all the points that it makes, using maps, drawings and photos, which makes it a far more useful and interesting introductory volume than many others on the departmental reading list.

Think the title says it all. A good introduction to the the Celts covering all aspects of their culture. I would recommend this book to someone who is interested starting to explore the world of the Celts. Plenty of pictures, drawings and maps.
