Star Wars Millennium Falcon: Owner's Workshop Manual [Ryder Windham, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. With the recent news that the upcoming Star Wars film is going to feature appearances from Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and. Insight Editions has provided with a couple exclusive spreads from the forthcoming book Star Wars: Millennium Falcon.

And like fans who read that book, it is apparent that the producers of the book have no real intention on making a "repair" manual. There are no instructions or steps on repair procedures like those found in actual Haynes repair manuals and as a mechanic for over 15 years I am quite familiar with what is found in actual Haynes books.

So why the connection to Haynes? Well, in my opinion the connection to Haynes can be easily explained as an attempt to bring a fresh and new layout to the common Star Wars Encyclopedia books and to also add a gimmick to boost sales. Is this a bad thing? Not only does it offer something new to an old idea but it also creates a new format to what was become a copy and paste production within the Encyclopedia product line.

If you can over look the fact that this is not an actual "repair" or "workshop" manual then you are brought to the second question. Does this book go beyond information found in the movies and include EU information? For the most part the answer is no. As the book attempts to stay within a "technical" blueprint the vast majority of information is of a technical nature.

The book focuses on things like the ships construction and component appearance and operation. Most of the book is split into three parts, first: Second, the technical aspects of the Falcon, with descriptions of items like the hyperdrive, shield units, sensors, life pods, general layout of the ships and weapons systems.

Third, the Falcon as seen in Episode and the people connected to those events. There is no mention of activities beyond the films and no connection to the EU.

And finally the third question, does this book offer anything more than what can be found in a Encyclopedia format? Yes and no. Once you open the front cover the Haynes aspect of the book is gone and the feel of the Encyclopedia product line is more prevalent. The layout of history, specs.

The Metaphor of Trump and the MAGA Hat

So is the book any good? Once you get past the Haynes gimmick and see the book for what it really is then there is no reason why you shouldn't enjoy the book.

It offers quite an extensive look at everything Falcon and does so with a good to great production value. The information is extensive and the visual layout is well done. If you are a fan of the Millennium Falcon and want to know more about it I'd recommend picking this book up. If you are familiar with Haynes manuals and are expecting a detailed look into the operating and mechanical systems of this book you will most likely be left wanting more, this book is a "on the surface" look at the Falcon and what makes her tic.

To see a video preview go to this link: I recently read two other books in this series that looks at famous SciFi vessels. Those focused the U. This book is just as good as the two of them. The book starts with a brief history of the company that built the vessel and th I recently read two other books in this series that looks at famous SciFi vessels.

The book starts with a brief history of the company that built the vessel and the evolution of the make through its variations before and after the production of the YT before presenting the more specific history of the "Millennium Falcon" itself. This includes coverage of Lando Calrission and Han Solo, her two most-famous owners.

The book is filled with great graphics and illustrations as well as screen shots taken from the various "Star Wars" films to create an attractive presentation of the information while also being helpful and informative in a way that is not unlike the various Eyewitness books put out by DK Publishing. It's a quick read, and probably a must-read for fans of Star Wars. Feb 12, Kieran rated it liked it.

Exclusive Pages From Star Wars: Millennium Falcon: Owner’s Workshop Manual

Haynes usually produces excellent detailed repair and maintenance manuals for a wide range of automobiles, motorbikes and aircraft. What this guide does have going for it is plenty of detailed cutaway diagrams of the Millennium Falcon as well as various other CEC light freighter models.

Three and a half stars. Mar 02, John rated it liked it Shelves: Enjoyable book with some nice details on the Millennium Falcon and the YT Transport in general the ship the Falcon is a modified version of. Lots of nice photos and technical style drawings make for an entertaining read.

The only complaint I had was where the authors undo a decades old fix to the question of how the Falcon got from Hoth to Bespin in Empire Strikes Back, leaving us to once again wonder why Han and Leia didn't die of old age on the journey. If it wasn't for this bit in the s Enjoyable book with some nice details on the Millennium Falcon and the YT Transport in general the ship the Falcon is a modified version of. If it wasn't for this bit in the section on the hyperdrive I probably would have given it another star.

This is a great book for Star Wars fans that gives you a lot of insight into the Falcon. It contains a brief history of the ship. Not many people know that the Millennium Falcon had multiple owners and multiple names before coming into the hands of Lando Calirssian and subsequently Han Solo.

Also included are diagrams and in depth descriptions of all the ship's systems. It's weapons, shields, sensors, engines, computers, power core, etc.

Lots of fun stuff to geek out on. Feb 01, Sergio rated it it was amazing.

Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual

This is an excellent book, but strictly for fans of Star Wars. There's a bunch of technical data about the Millennium Falcon which is very interesting, but only to real die hard fans. Artwork, illustration and photography are also of very high quality. The only gripe I have is that the text pays too much homage to the movies. I would have preferred something a bit more detached and objective.

Aside from that I had a good time reading this book.

This book contains the most awesome detailed drawings of the Millennium Falcon!! And the technical terms are great. I loved browsing theough this book and just imagining being on board. This is definately a must have for all serious Star Wars fans!

I loved this book! It was boring at times and read just like a technical manual for most of it, but it had a LOT of fantastic facts about the Falcon that I didn't know about!! Apr 05, Justin rated it liked it.

An in-depth look at the Millenium Falcon and the YT freighter. Was a very interesting read, although sort of too detailed at times for my taste. Thoroughly enjoyed the looks at the different variations of the YT, which really showed how versatile the class really is. Great easy table read.

The book gave loads of background info on the Falcon, so as a fan I loved it. It could have even been longer and more detailed! Dec 04, Jaclyn B. Wow, I've been wanting this book since long before it existed. It's a fantastic resource, and I can't wait to go scavenge some parts and use this manual to help me in building my own YT Kyle Kirkman rated it liked it Apr 02, Zach rated it it was amazing Oct 20, Andy Olson rated it it was amazing Jul 22, Jean-Francois Boivin rated it really liked it Jan 27, Hightower rated it really liked it Feb 08, Tammy morris rated it liked it Dec 25, Gavin McCabe rated it it was amazing May 27, Jenn rated it really liked it Jan 27, Bestselling Series.

Maybe — but that doesn't mean this isn't a fun book to read in its own right. To be straight forward, absolutely not. Most of the book is split into three parts, first:
