Scott's Rating: 3.5 out of 4
This is the Second Edition of the Guide to the Star Wars Universe. It is basically the same as the first one, but with everything up to the Zahn Novels added. This tells you everything you want to know about characters, ships, locations, weapons, etc from the movies, cartoons, books, comics, etc.
Like the first edition, this is a great source of information and trivia. It will answer most if not all of your questions about the SW Universe. It has a beautiful original cover and is in a larger size format than plain paperback. It's a great resource for a SW nut!
This book was already out of date when it hit the shelf. It only goes up to the Zahn novels, and there has been an incredible amount of new material added since then. Also, there are no photos and it only contains your generic SW character pictures from way back. There already needs to be a new edition.
When I think about how much money I'll spend in order to keep up with updates of guides like these, it brings ugly thoughts to mind!
