    a good overview of the prequels

    This is one of the best book of the Star Wars prequels. It has all the characters, weapons and vehicles including foldouts. It even has a foldout comparing the Vindicator class Star Destroyer to a Victory class Star Destroyers. It also has all the Jedi, Clone Troopers and Droid army. <BR/> Also recommended is the Star Wars Encyclopedia the new edition which has more of the Clone Wars and Order 66 era.

    Expected more for this price...

    When I saw they were coming out with this book, being written by Steve Sansweet, I was excited. I was wary of the price tag, but I thought this was going to be a coffee table book for the ages. Well I found it today and there was a copy open to peruse. For someone who has read all the DK Publishing books on the prequels, this was paramount to a slap in the face. This mammoth book is basically reprinting the 3 DK books they released for the prequels. As for the 'behind the scenes' photos, they're just 2 pages of pictures, 2 pages worth for every prequel. I am glad that I didn't sink my well-earned money into this book.
