A great resource for the die-hard fan!,
This review is from: Star Wars: The Essential Atlas (Paperback)
Being both a Star Wars fan and a gamer, this book fills a niche that has needed filling ever since the huge slew of Expanded Universe material has been released. This book contains multiple maps of the SW galaxy, each broken down by specific region such as the Core Worlds and the Outer Rim, along with an assortment of worlds that play major roles in the movies as well as the EU material. But the real meat and potatoes of the book lies in the historical atlas section, which spans from ancient history (the Infinite Empire and Xim the Despot) all the way to the Corellian-Galactic Alliance conflict which is prominent in the Legacy of the Force series (also has a map of the era of the Legacy comic book series).
It's a very useful resource if you're confused on the sequence events in the various media released, such as the LOTF novels (as I have been multiple times), running a game of the Star Wars RPG, or if you're simply looking for a great read. I recommend this to any Star Wars fan!
