The only disappointment for me is the lack of any extra pages in the 'A New Era' section (dedicated to the stories that take place after Return of the Jedi). This means there is no mention of the events in either the Legacy of the Force or the Fate of the Jedi novel series, presumably because of a shortage of pictures required for the 'visual' element of this guide. Aside from this, the book is great for anyone with an interest in Lucas' six films and the hundreds of writers and artists who have built upon his initial vision.
This particular book is a total study of EVERYTHING Star Wars, from the history of the universe, the events featured in the 6 films, the expanded universe (books, comics, games, etc) behind-the-scenes stuff & also pages dedictaed to the fans, the toys, it's success, etc. I'd find it hard to lay out the sheer volume of info contained in this book but Ryder Windham does so extremely well. It's beautifully laid out, full of great pictures, sketches & photo's and the accompanying text will be of interest whether you're a young fan or die-hard geek.
I wasn't sure whether to award the book 4 or 5 Stars simply because it's a topic that's so dear to my heart but eventually decided that you simply couldn't cram more into 160 pages for a RRP £15 & gave it top marks. Great purchase for any young fan or to simply add to the collection.
