When this book was first announced there was three big questions that came to mind when I first saw it listed. The first was: Is this an actual "repair" manual? The second: Does it expand beyond the movie Falcon or does it also contain information that was covered within the Expanded Universe? And finally: Will it be any more specific than the standard Star Wars Encyclopedia? Well, let's look into it.

First, is this an actual repair manual? To be straight forward, absolutely not. This is not the first time Haynes has ventured into the SciFi genre as they have also produced a book for the starship Enterprise (Star Trek: U.S.S. Enterprise Haynes Manual). And like fans who read that book, it is apparent that the producers of the book have no real intention on making a "repair" manual. There are no instructions or steps on repair procedures like those found in actual Haynes repair manuals and as a mechanic for over 15 years I am quite familiar with what is found in actual Haynes books.

So why the connection to Haynes? Well, in my opinion the connection to Haynes can be easily explained as an attempt to bring a fresh and new layout to the common Star Wars Encyclopedia books and to also add a gimmick to boost sales. Is this a bad thing? No. To me wrapping a Star Wars Encyclopedia on the Falcon in a Haynes manual format is not a bad idea. Not only does it offer something new to an old idea but it also creates a new format to what was become a copy and paste production within the Encyclopedia product line.

If you can over look the fact that this is not an actual "repair" or "workshop" manual then you are brought to the second question.

I purchased this repair manual thinking it would save me a trip to the ship yard to replace a bad power flux coupling. I ended up getting the thing apart but couldn't get it back together thanks to the lack of detailed step by step instructions in the manual. What's worse is it cost me 20,000 credits for a tow to the nearest port. I could have almost bought a new ship for that! Get this book only to add to you reference library. If you actually do your own repairs I recommend shelling out for the factory service maunal from CEC.

In what may seem like deja vu the creative team of writer author Ryder Windham and artists Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff are back in the cockpit for another book exploring the inner workings of the most famous starship ever, the Millennium Falcon.

In September of 2010 this trio brought us the Star Wars: Millennium Falcon: A 3-D Owner's Guide, which was a really fun book put together by Becker & Mayer Books. The 3-D Owner's Guide was an over-sized heavy cardboard book that featured a layered cut-away of the Millennium Falcon, each page contained a "slice" of the ship showing certain systems and surrounding the cut away was text and images associated with the systems discussed. That book was designed for ages 8 and up, so as cool as it was it was designed for a younger audience and at 22 pages there was only so much information that could be included.

Random House Publishing's Del Rey imprint has taken a similar idea and put a new spin on it that gives a book that is both visually appealing for younger audiences and is detail rich for the more discerning nerd. Partnering with renowned automotive repair manual publisher Haynes, the Haynes Star Wars: Millennium Falcon: Owner's Workshop Manual is 125 pages of geek fun.

The book is crammed full of images from the films, production photos, and illustrations. While this full color book doesn't look like most Haynes manuals I have seen on the inside, the concept itself works to make the marketing gimmick make sense. If you have used a Haynes manual in the past, this book is of a better quality. It comes with a glossy hardcover and the internal pages are printed on a nice sturdy paper stock.

This is a great book, very well put together and very well researched. THe only problem I have with this book is that there is a great isometric drawing of the Millenium Falcon spread over two pages and some of the detail in the center gets lost. They should have done what we did in our book, the Jupiter 2 Technical guide, which was to provide fold out pages so that some of the detail doesn't get lost. They didn't provide any explaination over the discrepancy of the access to the quad laser turrets in the actual interior sets that were built that didn't show the little corridor that they depicted in their book in the movies. Oh well. It was a great book. They also could have included some more scenes of the interiors, either by way of photos or 3d rendering. But a great book overall.

The Millennium Falcon is easily the most popular ship in the Star Wars universe. This book takes an in-universe approach to the Falcon, written as if it were a real Haynes manual for the Falcon. One thing I don't like about in-universe books is that they often have to create ridiculous excuses to get the character to narrate. However, for the Falcon manual the narrator is an official from the Corellian Engineering Corporation who is proud of the Falcon but doesn't inject too much of himself into the narrative. Overall, it works pretty well overall.

Readers will probably be most interested in the history of the Falcon, including a lineage that goes back to the Old Republic. The text is accompanied by beautiful still photos and schematics of the Falcon. The sections that detail the armaments, computer systems, etc are probably less exciting to read through, but are great to have at hand if you're ever curious about a particular aspect of the ship.

As much as I like the book, it is short and the current price tag seems a bit much. I think maybe two-thirds of the price would be a bit better. I'd recommend waiting for a sale, unless you're really anxious to get it.
