The Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual is an upcoming hardcover reference book written by Ryder Windham and illustrated by Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff. It will be out on January 31, 2012.


BookDipository.com has a really nice 10 page preview that shows off the artwork and the info that the book will contain. Looks really nice.

They also have a book like this about the USS Enterprise. It covers NX-01, NCC-1701, and -A, -B, -C, -D, and -E.

I love how they're based on Haynes books. My dad always had a Haynes book for the car he owned at the time.

Actually, I think they're made in conjunction with Haynes, too.

It IS a Haynes publication, and the UK version is already out! It is a fantastic book, the best read since the Atlas...

Haha, this is great! They actually reference an instruction manual in The Lando Calrissian Adventures by L. Neil Smith. It'll be interesting to see what this book contains.

Cool. I'll have a look at it later Smile .

I have a question. How can a book that is essentially a technical manual contain spoilers? 'This modified YT-1300 contains contains components from a Sienar model AA23 hyperdrive. This is at odds with the original Correllian hyperdrive installed'.

The spoilers are about the content of the manual Very Happy

SPOILER: The Millennium Falcon is 34.37 meters long. END SPOILER Laughing

But seriously, the manual is a pretty cool book. I liked that it showed what all the controls in the cockpit do. It even named all the pieces on the dejarik board.

Suvudu did an interview with Ryder Windham that you can check out here. He talks about the book.

I think we just forgot to take that out when we copied the format of our last review. Embarassed

Fixed now.

Picked this book up today. Love it. A much better effort than the Enterprise (Star Trek) volume last year.
