Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Two well-written series entries. John Glenn chronicles the former astronaut's life from his boyhood in Ohio through his military service, his career with NASA, and tenure in the Senate. George Lucas (which carries the disclaimer "unauthorized biography" on the verso of the title page) also discusses its subject's early years but a good portion of the book is devoted to his creation of the Star Wars films, which should interest young fans. Each volume is effectively illustrated with numerous black-and-white and color photographs. Lucas also includes a filmography.

This is a biography for all those Star Wars fans out there. If you want the understanding of a young Star Wars fan to expand, here's one way you can do it. Begin with an easy to read, interesting biography of George Lucas. It covers his early years (not doing well in school) and a growing interest in film in college. George Lucas also had to study film and find out about its history. The book is an eye opener for many youngsters dazzled by the glitz and confused about the hard work in the movie making world. This book provides an easy but necessary dip into the pool.

I thought that because having the name A&E associated with it, the book would be an in-depth review of the man's life. Needless to say, after reading the book in one day, I noticed that my knowledge on Lucas had not improved.
Very few is added to what fans already know (that he almost got killed in a car crash, he struggled to make American Graffitti, and Star Wars was a surprise success to him)
This book lacks the depth a figure of Lucas' status should be given. I wanted to know personal data as family members, how was the relationship with his father (rumored by many to be represented in Darth Vader) if he was the geek in school or not, etc, etc.
Good for non-fans or persons that know almost nothing about him, pass if you have read or learnt something about this modern myth-maker.

George Lucas grew up in Modesto, California where the average temperature was 110 degrees. He was crazy about cars all throughout high school. He was considered a "greaser." He was a very poor student and he didn't think he would graduate. A couple days before graduation he got in to a terrible car accident because he made an illegal left turn. =2 0He smashed into a walnut tree and the impact moved the tree back several feet, roots and all. He then bled from a gash in his forehead and turned blue from not enough oxygen. He spent the whole summer taking trips to the hospital for physical therapy.
He then earned an associate of arts degree. His next step after that was to go to film school so he went to USC for four years. After that he made many movies. Some of his most famous movies are Star Wars and Indiana Jones. He made Indiana Jones with Steven Spielberg.
I would recommend this book if you need to learn about George Lucas. It was a pretty easy book and I did not find that man y words I didn't know. I was entertaining and had some cool facts about George Lucas. If you want to learn about George Lucas I suggest reading this book.
