Title: Jedi vs Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force
Author: Ryder Windham
Year Published: 2007
This is a pretty cool book. Another one that I picked up at the library yesterday.
It's got some pretty cool history of the Jedi and the Sith. I particularly like the Sith history stuff. It really goes into some pretty good detail (although the website Wookiepedia has a great more detail) and some pretty good illustrations (done by Chris Trevas and Tommy Lee Edwards).
It starts with the earliest history, including the discovery of the Force and then ends after the Yuuzhan Vong War.
Check it out if you are a Star Wars nerd or not. LoL!
