When this book was first announced there was three big questions that came to mind when I first saw it listed. The first was: Is this an actual "repair" manual? The second: Does it expand beyond the movie Falcon or does it also contain information that was covered within the Expanded Universe? And finally: Will it be any more specific than the standard Star Wars Encyclopedia? Well, let's look into it.

First, is this an actual repair manual? To be straight forward, absolutely not. This is not the first time Haynes has ventured into the SciFi genre as they have also produced a book for the starship Enterprise (Star Trek: U.S.S. Enterprise Haynes Manual). And like fans who read that book, it is apparent that the producers of the book have no real intention on making a "repair" manual. There are no instructions or steps on repair procedures like those found in actual Haynes repair manuals and as a mechanic for over 15 years I am quite familiar with what is found in actual Haynes books.

So why the connection to Haynes? Well, in my opinion the connection to Haynes can be easily explained as an attempt to bring a fresh and new layout to the common Star Wars Encyclopedia books and to also add a gimmick to boost sales. Is this a bad thing? No. To me wrapping a Star Wars Encyclopedia on the Falcon in a Haynes manual format is not a bad idea. Not only does it offer something new to an old idea but it also creates a new format to what was become a copy and paste production within the Encyclopedia product line.

If you can over look the fact that this is not an actual "repair" or "workshop" manual then you are brought to the second question.

I purchased this repair manual thinking it would save me a trip to the ship yard to replace a bad power flux coupling. I ended up getting the thing apart but couldn't get it back together thanks to the lack of detailed step by step instructions in the manual. What's worse is it cost me 20,000 credits for a tow to the nearest port. I could have almost bought a new ship for that! Get this book only to add to you reference library. If you actually do your own repairs I recommend shelling out for the factory service maunal from CEC.

In what may seem like deja vu the creative team of writer author Ryder Windham and artists Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff are back in the cockpit for another book exploring the inner workings of the most famous starship ever, the Millennium Falcon.

In September of 2010 this trio brought us the Star Wars: Millennium Falcon: A 3-D Owner's Guide, which was a really fun book put together by Becker & Mayer Books. The 3-D Owner's Guide was an over-sized heavy cardboard book that featured a layered cut-away of the Millennium Falcon, each page contained a "slice" of the ship showing certain systems and surrounding the cut away was text and images associated with the systems discussed. That book was designed for ages 8 and up, so as cool as it was it was designed for a younger audience and at 22 pages there was only so much information that could be included.

Random House Publishing's Del Rey imprint has taken a similar idea and put a new spin on it that gives a book that is both visually appealing for younger audiences and is detail rich for the more discerning nerd. Partnering with renowned automotive repair manual publisher Haynes, the Haynes Star Wars: Millennium Falcon: Owner's Workshop Manual is 125 pages of geek fun.

The book is crammed full of images from the films, production photos, and illustrations. While this full color book doesn't look like most Haynes manuals I have seen on the inside, the concept itself works to make the marketing gimmick make sense. If you have used a Haynes manual in the past, this book is of a better quality. It comes with a glossy hardcover and the internal pages are printed on a nice sturdy paper stock.

I bought this for my grown son who still loves everything Star Wars. It's a pretty cool book, but frankly I was expecting more of the "Haynes Manual" kind of stuff inside. There are really only a couple of pages like that and the rest is just pictures you would see in any "Star Wars" book.

While this is an attractive book with some great images, I feel a bit let down by it. There's some good historical content about the YT1300 Series ships, but the book isn't at all laid out like a Haynes manual. There's a lot of info but nothing that hasn't been published in other Star Wars reference books. I was really hoping for something different.

I have to give it only three stars because it's really not a manual in the typical Haynes' style
What I mean is that this was merely a description of the Falcon, including a not-short history of Correlian Engineering, some of its various small freighter designs, and especially the YT-1300.
It did not describe any of the Falcon's systems in detail, nor the steps to troubleshoot, replace, or repair a component/part (i.e. how do you troublehsoot and replace a hyperdrive, how do you replace the small, auxilliary chin laser cannon?); THIS is what I would expect from a Haynes manual, even if for a science-fiction starship.
For what the manual did do, it was pretty cool, that's why it gets three stars. But since it is nowhere as detailed (in context) as the Haynes manual I have for my 2001 Honda Accord.
