Format: Paperback
This book is problably the most complete guide ever made. Has entire sections of time not discussed in movies (The Golden Age of the Sith, The New Jedi Order, etc.). Also includes many little-known Clone Wars battles that are very interesting (The Dark Reaper Project, Battle of Kamino, Defense of Naboo, The Battles of Lianna and Tehr, Fortress of Axion, Muunilnist, Brentaal,Null, Haruun Kal, the list goes on). Goes from up to 100,000 years before battle of Yavin to 36 years after. Also, the art is wonderfully done by Tommy Lee Edwards and the portraits look like pictures by Mark Chiarello. Just an excellent book that I'll problably read about 50 times or so. Definitely, a MUST buy (and well worth the cover price too.)

Format: Paperback
Now that George Lucas has completed Episodes I, II, and III of the "Star Wars" saga, it is time to take a moment and put together all of the pieces into a comprehensive chronology that account for everything in the "Star Wars" universe from the Pre-Republic Era to the Killik Expansion (so the chronology goes 35-36 years beyond the end of the original "Star Wars" movie). The six movies are at the heart of everything, but there are all those novels, comic books, and graphic novels, not to mention references to historical events that can be fleshed out. Putting everything in order is what "Star Wars: The New Essential Chronology" is all about. With text by Daniel Wallace, with Kevin J. Anderson, this "new" version is updated for "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones," "Revenge of the Sith," and the new Jedi order. It also has dozens of full-color illustrations by Mark Chiarello, Tommy Lee Edwards, and John Van Fleet, who distinct styles certainly complement each other.

Ever since the hologram of Princess Leia named Obi-Wan Kenobi as her only hope and mentioned the Clone Wars fans of "Star Wars" have been trying to expand their knowledge of that galaxy far, far away in a time long ago. The history of the "Star Wars" universe is divided into a dozen parts: (1) Tales of the Ancient Republic; (2) The Fall of the Republic, which includes films I-III; (3) The Empire and the New Order; (4) Profiles in History of Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and the Skywalkers; (5) The Galactic Civil War, which covers the original trilogy; (6) Birth of the New Republic; (7) Empire Resurgent; (8) The Return of the Jedi Knights; (9) Uprisings and Insurgencies; (10) A Lasting Peace; (11) Generations of Jedi Knights; and (12) The New Jedi Order.

Format: Paperback
After reading the Star Wars: The New Essential Guide to Characters, I was really looking forward to getting my hands on the The New Essential Chronology. As far as I'm concerned, Daniel Wallace did a great job compiling all the important bits and pieces of Star Wars history into one complete volume.

A great book for those of us that do not necessarily have the time to read every single Star Wars novel in the market. I'm one of them. RPG gamers would also benefit from this book as it details the major events of the Star Wars timeline, making it a highly resourceful book for Players and Game Masters alike.

I enjoyed it tremendously and would not hesitate to recommend this book to fans of Star Wars or those who would like to know more about George Lucas' masterful sci-fi creation. In my opinion, this book is much easier to read compared to the Star Wars Encyclopedia.

Format: Hardcover
This is the best New Essential Guide I've seen. It is comprehensive to say the least. Unlike some other guides, they waited until the saga was complete. It covers absolutely everything up to the Swarm War (Dark Nest Trilogy).

The illustrations are unique and beautiful.

Everything you want to know about Star Wars history is right there, organized and easy to read.

Format: Paperback
I just received my copy of this book the other day and I can't put it down. It is extremely thorough for a book of this size. It covers every major (and most minor) aspects of Star Wars history in a clear and concise manner. The galaxy map at the end is very nice, and like the text, up to date. The only problem I have is with some of the artwork. Most of it is nice, but some of it I would consider mediocre. The book is also great source material for anyone playing the Star Wars roleplaying game. I highly recommend this book to any fan of Star Wars!

Fills in all of the holes in the SW timline that existed in the first Chronolgy, from the Clone Wars, to the construction of the Death Stars, to the New Jedi Order.

A must for SW fans.

Format: Paperback
This latest addition to the "Essential Guide" series for the Star Wars universe is very well-done! It covers an immense amount of Star Wars history, touching not only on the six movies but also on the extraneous books and video-games of the greater Star Wars world. Granted, this broad-sweep does require a compromise in that the amount of information on any one subject is probably not going to satisfy a die-hard fan. Personally, however, I like that the book covers as much as possible of all Star Wars history, since it is always a pain to try to keep up with every novel or comic book with the Star Wars imprint on it (and there are a myriad!); instead, this book presents everything in one unified, complete package!
Now, a special word about the illustrations - they are simply amazing! They are lots of them, and each one is well-done and stands out somehow. The artists devoted a lot of hard work into bringing the Star Wars universe alive visually. It is as they say - a picture is worth a thousand words. And that seems to apply just as well to a galaxy far, far away!
