This is for the Star Wars junky. If you live and breath that world you'll absolutely love everything to do with this book. I'm not one of those people, but still, I respect the level of attention and love put into this effort. If I can dig it, hardcore SW fans will adore it. I received a copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review
