From a design point of view, the cover is terrible and dust jacket was already worn down when delivered. The original painting that served as the cover is relegated to the cover in silver rather than in full colour. This doesn't bode well for the book, as the additional annotations at times treat the reader like an idiot, and generally add nothing to the story itself as they are. They only mess up the layout, and with those with abnormal eyesight, it's a chore to read.
The annotations would've served better if Timothy Zahn would've discussed the topics he raises in these annotations in a separate, expanded chapter where he discusses the creation of the book topic by topic. As the annotations are now, they're an eyesore and at times take away the mystique of the characters.
The newly included novella, while decent, does leave slightly sour taste. It would've served better if it had been modified as a new introduction chapter to the main novel itself.
In short, all the additions, outside forewords, take away from the overall value of the package. The original pressing may lack the extras, yet it is much better to read. The only reason to pick this over the possibly cheaper release is that it's more available around and guaranteed to be in good shape, unless your mailer shoves the book into a bag and calls it a day.
A good read for those who are about to dive into Thrawn.
