Personally I like John Michell's books, they're very engaging. I also like Alfred Watkins for the same reason. It doesn't mean I'm going to accept a lot that either of them said, but then I don't necessarily agree with Burl about glaciers either :)

I do think it's a bit of a stretch for your friend to say JM "found" all the Land's End stones in "Old Stones of..." though; William Borlase, William Copeland Borlase, JT Blight (a visionary in every sense) and Viv Russell had already recorded pretty much everything on the peninsula in a lot more detail. But still well worth reading, especially as his books opened up the places to wider, non-archaeo audience in much the same way Cope's TMA did two decades later. And that can't be a bad legacy.
