It is nice to see new images of the costumes and props. They could have easily used an old picture of the cantinia band instead of taking the time to seach for the costumes or they could have used a drawing to show the inside of a lightsaber instead of taking the time and money to build one, but they didn't. They went that extra mile to be creative. It is not a rehash of old information. These are the problems I had with the Star Wars Encyclopedia. Do not be turned away by the fact that they have labeled this as a young reader book. I am a 29 years old Naval Officer and I thought it was great. A must have reference book.

Star Wars the Visual Dictionary is actually more than just a dictionary. It has excellent photos from the Lucasfilm Archives including a few from scenes that were cut. In a way, this book is similar to From Star Wars to Indiana Jones: the Best of the Lucasfilm Archives, but instead of being production notes, it treats the technical objects as if they were real. Arrows point to various parts of things like Boba Fett's armour. I wonder if some of the props were enhanced for this book because there are photos of the inside mechanics of a lightsaber and a stormtrooper helmet, which wouldn't have been neccessary for the movies. The layout of the book is much like the Eyewitness series with very clear individual photos of objects instead of just a rectangular, stale layout. A lot of information is packed into theh 64 pages and as far as I can tell, nothing was left uncovered. I've got to hand it to the research team who worked on this book. I deffinitely recommend it for kids or adults.

This book was so amazing! It had everything u didnt know about starwars, things from cut scenes, backgrounds of many insignificant characters, such as chewey's age and family members. If you've always wondered how in the hell a lightsaber could work then now u can find out.... or how a droid like R2-D2 could fit all those gizmo's inside of him, that's in there too. David West Reynold's put so much thought into writing this book. It's amazing how there could be so much information about the insides of something that doesn't even exist, it was just completely thought up by a bunch of people...a definate must buy for any starwars fans... i also recommend buying INCREDIBLE CROSS-SECTIONS, which was a very similar, terrific info filled book...to the fullest!

The beautifully illustrated DK duo cover characters, costumes, and weaponry in the Visual Dictionary, while the Cross Sections book dissects vehicles and spacecraft. Want to know how a light saber really works or what the interior of an Imperial Stormtrooper's helmet looks like? It's all in here. The most remarkable thing about the books is the amount of thought that's been expelled on the workings of things that don't even exist. The DK books are seriously cool and exceedingly browsable. Though aimed at kids, don't be surprised to see plenty of adults flipping through them also.-Michael Rogers, "Library Journal"

Although it has great visuals, some captions are not to be believed. Lots of technobabble on the blasters page and the lightsabre page has some statements that are contradictory to canon. Overall, it is worth having for excellent visual references, but keep in mind that it has a diluted boundary between canon and apocrypha. (Especially remember that the lightsabre cutaway is Dr. Reynold's design, it is not by definition what a real sabre would look like inside.)

This book is brilliant for all star wars fans, young and old. It gives a very detailed account of all star wars characters. Even the most minor characters have a place in this book for example even jabba's entertainers and jabba's bounty hunter, Boba Fett have two pages of their own. It's a good idea to have this book at hand when looking at the star wars trilogy videos.

David West Reynolds, is a genuis on writing these books. They are great books. Why? Because of the creativity and cleverness. He didn't just draw anything, nope. He had to save up and actually build a light saber. And he didn't just go rambling along about the obvios stuff, nope. He gave you stuff like What is that ammo on Chewbaccas banoleir? Yep, a genuis he is.

This book is the information center for the Star Wars Episode 1 Phantom Menace movie. If you want to know anything about the movie such as the rubee in the Queens hat or the hyperdrive to the ship, this book will tell you. If you have the time, buy this book, I highly suggest it. It will educate you in everything in The Phantom Menace

I loved how the Star Wars book explained every single detail of whatever it was talking about! And the pictures were outstanding!! It was a book to remember, and love for generations to come!!I personally love the book, and I think whom ever looks at it will see the same beauty I saw in the book.
