I bought it to learn more about Carnac, which it covers sufficiently well, but there is much more to this book than that. The detailed plans, excellent photographs, and well laid-out design will give you an overview and timeline for many other major and minor megalithic sites in western europe.
One of the best impulse buys I've made.
Of course none of it can be covered in any great depth, but there is a selected bibliography and notes and references to follow up on. The illustrations are unsurpassable, many of them beautifully amostpheric without losing clarity. Particularly interesting are old postcards and reproductions of early topographical drawings.
Anyone with any interest in the subject should buy this book. If you have room for only one book on the subject, make it this one.
