The only thing detracting from this book getting a five star rating is the fact that, as some other reviewers have posted, the content for the actual "art" of the show is lacking. If one is looking for more in depth technical illustration, I recommend the excellent (and rare as well as pricey) "Macross: Perfect Memory", which is a wealth of visual information about the adapted first third of the original Robotech series. Also, as a companion to "Art I", "Files Magazine Spotlight on Robotech" is another worthy piece for vintage Robotech completists (although beware of dealers on Amazon who are price gouging).
That being said, the last section of the book chronicles the development not only of Robotech, but of Manga itself. I found it to be supremely interesting and wish it could have been more substantial. My guess is that the publishers were a bit unsure which direction this book really needed to go. It attempts to possibly satisfy casual and serious fans at the same time and doesn't really do either to any great degree. I'm still pleased with my purchase, but only because I paid so little for it as i bought it from one of the used sellers. If I'd paid $15 or $20, I would certainly feel a bit gyped.
