Guest Review by my husband Doug

This book made my head spin.  I found the adult and kid parts of me in a great deal of tension over this.

The kid part of me was completely enamored with the cutaway views of all the equipment laid out in the book.  The adult side of me was totally blown away by the amount of detail that was in these drawings. I kept thinking to myself - wow this would’ve been a great deal of work.

Throughout the whole book though, both sides were enthralled with the material. The images are stunning with an incredible amount of detail and clarity. In addition to the images is the labels and small descriptions surrounding each image. All of this together gives a wonderful impression about how these machines were to have looked and worked.

This book delivers what you expect from the title, cross sections of Star Wars vehicles. Yet it exceeded my expectations greatly.

I enjoyed this book greatly, if you are or know a Star Wars fan, then this would be a great addition to their library.

Happy May the 4th (be with you).
