One of Dad's favourite things...STAR WARS

Ultimate Star Wars
“The Force runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And... my sister has it.” ~ Luke Skywalker (The Return of The Jedi)

Unless you have been hiding under a rock in a galaxy far far away you will know that the JJ Abrams directed Star Wars Episode 7 – The Force Awakens will be released on December 18, 2015 (for North American audiences) and unless you are not aware of the tradition, Father’s Day is around the corner, on June 21. 

How do the two go together? 

Think of the original Star Wars trilogy (now re-branded as Episodes 4-6 and called A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and The Return of the Jedi) and how it captivated a generation of fanboys who are now older men and dads. Now think of the generation that was supposed to be attracted to the second trilogy, the prequel episodes 1-3 (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and The Revenge of the Sith) and how it garnered big box office receipts among a younger eager to explore and the older generation eager to relive.

Vehicles from the movies and animated series
Now think of the Star Wars universe of characters, creatures, locations, technology, and vehicles. This is where Ultimate Star Wars comes in.
Published by DK Publishing, authored by Daniel Wallace, Ryder Windham, Tricia Barr, and Adam Bray, and with a foreward written by none other than C-3P0, actor Anthony Daniels, Ultimate Star Wars is a cornucopia of knowledge for the fans of the Star Wars universe encompassing the canon of the original and prequel trilogies as well as the Clone Wars animated series.

In essence, the quality hardcover is a must have item that will stand the test of time and it will be the ultimate guide for those trivia buffs wishing to test their knowledge against others for whom "The Force" runs strong.

Another highly recommend DK piece worthy of space on dad’s bookshelf.
