I first saw this book at Star Wars Celebration IV and had been eagerly awaiting the release ever since. The prospect of a well-researched history of Star Wars and a trove of new behind-the-scenes images was a welcome addition to the book collection. It's been on my shelf for a while now, but warrants a very brief review.
In a perfect world, there would be an eBook version of this book, if only to make reading the text easier. The large format is a necessity for the rich visuals, but a companion eBook would make sitting down with the text a little more accessible.
