Cunliffe is arguably the premier popular scholar on the Celtic speaking peoples of Europe; He won't steer you wrong. Also worth looking into after reading The Ancient Celts is Celtic From The W.

  For the Celts themselves, the book presents broad overviews of different aspects of Celtic society, culture, art and so on.
