DK publishing has released Ultimate Star Wars today, and, much like the title suggests, it is the ultimate book for Star Wars knowledge and information. This gorgeous, 320 page book is the most current, up to date resource for all things canonical in the Star Wars saga, and is a must have for any Star Wars fan. Not only does it answer many of your Star Wars questions, but invites fans in, both new and old, into the universe we all know and love so well. The layout is a visual splendor as well; if you are a Star Wars fan, this is the ultimate encyclopedia for you.
The book looks at the series chronologically (films, animated series, and comics), and provides the most up to date information and resources on the saga. The layout is exquisite and pleasant to behold, and the prose is insightful, intelligent, and accessible. This should be no surprise, particularly since the four authors (Ryder Windham, Daniel Wallace, Adam Bray, and Tricia Barr) are no stranger to Star Wars, and are all excellent writers in their own right. Whether the focus is on key events from the saga, characters, vehicles, or technology, the information gleaned through the text and layout are a proverbial banquet of information for fans. Once you have read the book, you will be hard-pressed to discuss Star Wars without it.
This is a must-read book for any Star Wars fan, and is an outstanding resource. With so many things out now as part of the canon, Ultimate Star Wars is your gateway to retake your first step into a larger world, with all the knowledge you will need at your fingertips. Ultimate Star Wars is available wherever books are sold. Be sure to check it out today, as you won’t be disappointed. Go grab a copy, get a cup of coffee, and let the debating and analysis begin anew!
