I bought this used when I first got into my Star Wars' craze. As another reviewer said, this was the days before the internet, wikipedia, and wikias that hold founts of information. I was not able to read all the extended universe for quite some time so this was my window into the world beyond the then three movies. The stories I liked led me to the books I bought and the ones I didn't I knew to avoid.
This was a great little book and I'm quite sorry that I've lost it since then. It was a lot of fun to read.
