The Book itself covers several topics including The Republic, The Empire, seperate sections for the Jedi and Sith, as well as an entire section on the Hutts, Mandalorians and the criminal elements of the Galaxy. Towards the end of the book it covers all planets currently in the game with one planet every two pages.
As a Roleplayer this has provided me with valuable insight in to the era that The Old Republic is set in, as well as source material to fill in gaps in my information. It outlines Imperial and Republic military rank structure, the ideologies behind both the Republic and Empire, as well as philosophies and structure of the Jedi Order and Sith.
In addition to the above it includes several biographies of key figures we've seen throughout the game like Darth Malgus, and it also has a summed up play by play of the class stories and an overview of the class itself (So maybe skip over the classes you haven't played!)
All in All I've gotten every dime out of this book that I was hoping to.
Be warned, this book is a cofee table book and reads most comfortably resting in your lap or on a table.
The Dust Cover is removeable and the hardcover underneath is just as well designed and artistic as the dust cover itself without the writing getting inthe way of the art
Must Buy for any enthusiast of Star Wars interested in this Era.
If you are fan of SWTOR or are curious about the game, pick this up, you will not be disappointed. This book provides a lot of background for the game, but expands on the game with more details that while available, you don't have be looking at computer screen. You can be curled up in bed with a nice cup of hot chocolate and read about the vast universe of Star Wars 3,500 years before the movies and the epic game created by BIoWare, Electronic Arts (they can do things right at times people), and LucasArts.
This book is truly a must have if you are serious about SWTOR as it expands your knowledge, making you stronger. Remember "[t]here is no ignorance, there is knowledge" or "knowledge is power" depending on your side.
The book feels solid filled with information, from what has transpired since the knights of the old republic game until this very point. This book provides information on the Sith Empire, The Jedi and the Republic, it had detailed explanations of the many character classes from the game as well details of the starships, weapons, alien races.
the book is a masterpiece of star wars, if only this story line would be picked up to be made into a movie, it would be fantastic.
But let's be real- you wouldn't be considering this book OR reading reviews if you aren't already a huge Star Wars fan. So speaking as a huge Star Wars fan, I'll say it isn't quite a "must have," but it's certainly in my top five EU reference books. If you're into the extended universe and enjoy SWTOR, you'll be happy with the purchase. If you're not... well, you won't enjoy the book, and I have to wonder why you're even looking at this in the first place.
