The book is beautiful with fantastic artwork in it as well as a great commentary on the production process. However as a couple of other users have stated the binding on the book seems to fall off very quickly, mine only lasting a day or two.
This doesn't present too much of a problem though as a quick dab of glue will fix it just fine. Overall I love it, it's one of my favourite concept art books out of the many I own.

Right, my major gripe - this book falls apart! With the first one I got from Amazon the pages fell off the spine after a month or so, so I asked for a replacement. This I got, however it suffers the same problem! And if you read Parka's video review, they state the same problem...so it seems to be a manufacturing issue. I just don't get why they go to all the trouble of making a well put-together book only to use cheap glue which does not work!
Anyway, onto the content. Its ok, well organised, there are nice pieces of lush locations such as Kashyyyk and Felucia, and some other cool bits and bobs, but nothing truly SPECIAL. There's a lot of mundane stuff in there too. Also, read the title! The Art and MAKING OF The Force Unleashed...there's much on how they made the game etc, some of which is interesting, such as unused storylines, but a bit too much for my liking.
I did actually get the game after reading this book, but wasn't much impressed with that either! I'd say the game lacked coherency, the book lacks content. Overall I'd say worth a look if you can get it for a tenner.
