5.0 out of 5 stars 'A Wretched Hive of Scum and Villiany', 23 Dec 2006

This review is from: Star Wars the New Essential Guide to Alien Species (Star Wars Library) (Paperback)
This book is GREAT, it has detailed descriptions of many Star Wars alien species that we all know and love. It includes all their homeplanet locations, descriptions of their cultures and traditions, mating procedures, memorable figures of that species and their importance in Galatic History. It includes everything you could want to know about a certain species weather it be the tall, fearsome yet honourable Wookie to the cunning, shifty fashion-aware Twi,lek or the musical, bonstrous Bith to the thugish, mean, selfish Dug. I counted up to 40+ different species also including the non-sentient ones such as Rancor, Fambaa and Tauntaun etc. There were some who hadn't made it into the book but that maybe because they were in the first edition and didn't want to put them in the second. Still whatever the reader a MUST HAVE buy for any Star Wars knowlege-seeking fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Update, 6 Nov 2006

This review is from: Star Wars the New Essential Guide to Alien Species (Star Wars Library) (Paperback)
The first edition of this book was a bit dissapointing because it hardly had any new information at all. This new edition is beautifully illustrated in full-color and covers all the movies / spin-offs. The amount of EU entries has been limited and so more essential species from the movies can be found in this book. By all means, it's an excellent update.

Because species and creatures have been put together in one book, it's unavoidable that some of them are still missing (Sy Myrthian, Snivvian, etc) or have been added to the additional species (Aleena, Ongree, etc...). Luckily, the entries of the 'additional species' are much longer than a couple of lines.

If you don't have any books about aliens / creatures from SW, then this would be a good choice.

Can't comment personally on the book as I'm not a Star Wars nut but my nephew apparently is delighted with it and devised several games using it at his 11th birthday party.
