Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ€TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

This is a Dorling Kindersley book, which means fantastic pictures.

So believe when I say, it may be a book geared for kids, but it's the adult who watched the original over 20 years ago that will really love this one!

The impression I get from this book is that it's meant for kids who are "growing into" Star Wars fans.

The impression I get from this book is that it's meant for kids who are "growing into" Star Wars fans. It's written to be at a level able a children's book but clearly isn't meant for the adult reader. A young kid whose seen the movies and wants to know more about Star Wars or a kid who's been watching Clone Wars and is getting into the movies seems like the target market here.

In that regard the book does its job and does it well. This seems like the perfect give to give to a budding SW fan. While the book mostly focuses on stuff from the movies, there's a lot of information in it from the Expanded Universe. While there were one or two small errors, anyone who's a fan of the EU lore will find a lot of nods to it and the information is presented in a clear and simple fashion. Again, just right for kids getting into SW.

If you want to cultivate the growing Star Wars fan in your family this book would make a great gift. It's written in way that's interesting, easy to understand and doesn't talk down to the reader. Any kid who's into Star Wars should enjoy it.

If there were a Jedi/Force bible for kids, this would probably be it.

Packed with Jedi wisdom and training, dark side warnings and practises, this book is a simplistic examination of the world that Lucas never really expected would develop as it has. Authors Elizabeth Dowsett and Shari Last present biographies, vital statistics, and answer questions that may appear on a Jedi FAQ page.

This book is clearly intended for the younger Star Wars readers, but older established fans can appreciate this approach.

Star Wars is a cross generational masterpiece, this is just one side of it. I wonder what the 'adult' version would look like?

This book is pretty cool. It has been fun for my sons to look through, but it's not really a book to sit and "read". But it's fun.

Like the Sith version. You will not learn anything new if you are a Star Wars fan. Nice for RPG visuals. But of all my SW books these ones get the least re-reads.
