I was extremely pleased with what I got when I purchased this guide. It gives a detailed description of the anatomy, history, and use of every item in Star Wars. This guide is broken into sections. These are ranged weapons, melee weapons, starship and planetary weapons, superweapons, defenses and armor, security, and other equitment. The ranged weapons section covers everything from the simple dart shooter to the lethal disruptor rifle. Melee is similar, and it gives many descriptions of Yuuzhan Vong melee weapons(ugh). Starship and planetary weapons section covers many things, and the superweapons section is a very interesting section. I value this guide over the Vehicles and Vessels guide. Its setup is more structured and organized. In the beginning of this guide you can find a Major Manufacterers guide. Ian Fullwood has done an excellent job illistrating this guide. You can see everything. I strongly reccomend this guide to anyone who likes Star Wars, and it really helped me get into Star Wars. A must-have.

This book is good. There are plenty of pictures, sourcing for items and where the surface in the universe, even a fairly decent description of most of them. But it didn't have the technical specifications that you would expect from a Star Wars Manual. It was lacking in a lot of fine details, and seemed ti have been made just to gloss over everything and make it look good. Ok, but not great.

This is written for the more casual or younger fan. It includes some decent diagrams, and SOME good background info, but really misses the chance to create some good background detail. For example, any astute fan knows there are significant differences between the E-11 balusters used by the stormtroopers in the OT films, but this book doesn't mention that at all. The included drawing ONLY includes a dawning of the blaster as used in ROTJ. Similar situations exist for the DL-44 blaster... One of the most iconic weapons of the whole Star Wars saga. Yeah, it's super nerd detail, but that's who should benefit from a book like this.

Nice Diagrams, a few VERY good light saber comparison pages, nice description of companies that make the weaponry but mostly underwhelming with little information or obvious information on the actually weapons as well as very poor renders of the few that were rendered. I never got the original of this book but I did have the original Essential guide to vehicle's and vessels and it was MUCH better with no render only black and white artist sketches as well as more interesting diagrams.

The essential guides series where some of my favorites growing up. I love collecting them. I would just sit for hours slowly going through and reading all of the technical details. The creativity is endless. And the schematics and drawings are so fun. Love these books.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my nephew. He is 9yrs old. He absolutely loved it. He can barely put it down. What a great purchase! I will definitely be ordering him the other Essential Guide Star Wars books too.

Me and my 7 year old love Star Wars and we've enjoyed this series of guides to everything Star Wars. This weapons and technology guide is wonderful and fun. For anyone who loves Star Wars and just wants to know more this is a great buy.
