Thomas Charles-Edwards has written a book that will be essential reading, and not only for those concerned with the history of Wales, for many decades to come. (David Stephenson, Studia Celtica)
In short, this volume clearly reflects a career marked by erudition. Not surprisingly, experts in the field will value the work. Nevertheless, the text is accessible to novices. (J. M. Pope, CHOICE)
This volume will revolutionise the study of early medieval Wales (Alex Woolf, English Historical Review)
the most detailed and rigorous account of early medieval Welsh history, and of the written sources for that history, published to date. A signal scholarly achievement, it not only provides an invaluable point of entry into a wide range of debates but, thanks to the originality of its overall conception and its numerous fresh interpretations, compels us to look afresh at the formative period that marked the beginnings of the History of Wales (Huw Pryce, Archaeologia Cambrensis)
a major study based on a lifetime's work by one of the leading historians of Britain in the period which it concerns (Ken Dark, Irish Historical Studies)
An important, elegantly written work of high scholarship. (Northern History)
The breadth and depth of scholarship on offer is extraordinary ... a splendid work. (Nicholas Higham, American Historical Review)
a brief review can barely do justice to the riches to be found in this book ... It ought to be read by everyone with an interest in early medieval Britain (Caroline Brett, Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies)
The appearance of the first volume in the seminal 'Oxford History of Wales' is to be warmly welcomed ... Professor Thomas Charles-Edwards has produced a remarkably full and detailed picture of early medieval Wales. (Euryn Rhys Roberts, History)
Charles-Edwards combines narrative history with archaeological and linguistic evidence in a masterly way, with detailed scrutiny of the documentary sources and of recent work on their interpretation ... It will remain a standard work in this complex field for many years to come. (Jeremy Knight, Society for Medieval Archaeology)

As far as scholarly books go, this is eminently readable.
Prof. Charles-Edwards has an evident interest in language too, and the way various peoples have left their mark.
