I got my copy of the new Dorling Kindersley book Star Wars Year by Year today. I'm not sure when it's due in New Zealand shops, if they bother to get copies at all (it was due for release yesterday) nor what price they'll have it at (no doubt expensive).

I've only had a quick flick through it so far. It looks like another great DK book with lots of nice images and snippets of information about Star Wars and the other things happening in the same years, but as usual with DK books it lacks any real detail. :)

I'll have a better look through it when I get time, but I doubt there's much there that's new ... DK has a very bad habit of re-publishing the same information in a variety of books (for example, they've got a dog encyclopedia that comes in at least three different sizes, but is all the same information).

The book comes in a slip case and has two "collectible prints" (about A4 size) in a sleeve inside the front cover. It includes pretty much everything Star Wars: movies, TV shows, Hasbro toys, comics, games, etc., plus George Lucas' earlier movies and life, as well as those snippets about other things happening at the same time (movies like Back to the Future, TV shows like Battlestar Galactica, and various other world happenings), but each item is only a paragraph or two.

I got a copy of this from the library and even though I did enjoy flicking through it I don't think it's one I'd buy...but a good read none-the-less!
