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.
The illustrations are unique and beautiful.
Everything you want to know about Star Wars history is right there, organized and easy to read.
A must for SW fans.
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!
