Review from Aonghus Ó hAlmhain's blog

'Ceird is ea iriseoireacht. Namhad an cheird gan í a fhoghlaim, ach ní foghlaimítear ceird sa seomra ranga ná fiú san Ollscoil. Foghlaimítear ceird ó bheith ag obair le máistrí. Ní bhíonn an deis sin ann i gcónaí, ar ndóigh; ach is féidir méid áirithe a fhoghlaim ó scéalta na máistrí ar a dtaithí féin. Sin díreach atá sa leabhar seo, seanchas na ceirde á reic ag máistrí sa cheird, cuid mhór acu fós gníomhach; cuid eile atá anois ar an dtaobh eile den mboird agus léargas ar leith acu dá bhrí sin.'
