A word of warning - Amazon appear to have created a confusing situation here.
A. Burl has two books with very similar titles. The one shown here (Hardback) is "The Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany" an updating of his 1976 "The Stone Circles of the British Isles".
The paperback listed under other buying options is "_A Guide to_the Stone Circles of Britain, Ireland and Brittany" the 2005 (very slightly) updated version of his book of the same title first published in 1995.
Do not make the mistake I did and buy the paperback listed here expecting the content shown above! I have rated the book 5 stars in the hope that people will see this warning - I have yet to.
It is very disappointing that Burl (and Yale who publish all the books mentioned) has given two quite different texts such similar titles though Amazon should really pay better attention.
Note that all the attached reviews for 'paperback' will be for the other book also.

This guild to 432 selected stone circles has just the right amount of detail with maps, map references, directions and parking places and descriptions of the circles with references for further reading and is perfect for the glove compartment of the car. As others have mentioned, it is not to be confused with "The Stone Circles of Britain and Ireland" (no "A Guide to"), which is a more archaeological survey of the styles and histories of stone circles.

a useful book to keep with you on your travels. It's not pretty with lots of coloured photos, but it is very comprehensive, covering all the British Isles and Brittany too. Probably best for those who are serious about archaeology and ancient monuments.
