Thought this was a cracking price for any Star Wars fans. use code FREEDEL for free delivery.

George Lucas was a rebel, refusing to make films in the style of the dying studio system, relentlessly pushing the technology of the day and almost alone in understanding the potential of merchandising, but he was a rebel who built an empire.

From the staggering unexpected success of the original Star Wars in 1977, when cinema attendances exceeded 20 million for the first time since 1963, through The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, then the ‘dark times’ – the 16 years leading to the blockbusting prequel trilogy – this is the fascinating story of how it all happened.

Life-long Star Wars fan and movie journalist Brian J. Robb edited the official Star Wars magazine for a decade and visited the sets of Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in Australia (observing director George Lucas at work), as well as the famous Skywalker Ranch. He has interviewed many of the stars and crew of all six Star Wars movies.

A Brief Guide To James Bond – How 007 Changed The World
http://www.theworks.co.uk/images/9781849015073_M.jpg
The world's fascination with Bond is unstoppable. James Bond is the greatest British fictional hero of the post-war era. He also has a huge following in the US - and around the world - as a legendary Cold War warrior, and now as a daredevil able to take on the villains of the post-Cold War world.

In this comprehensive guide to Ian Fleming, the books, the films and the world that was created out of 007, Nigel Cawthorne uncovers Bond's allure. It comes with special sections on the main characters - Q, M, the Bond Girls, and the women who first inspired them; the cars, and the incomparable baddies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative yet easy to read, December 9, 2012
By Chad Cloman (Denver, CO United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
This review is from: A Brief Guide to Star Wars: The Unauthorised Inside Story (Paperback)
This book is well-written and easy to read. It's informative yet not so bogged down in detail that it becomes a chore to read. The author devotes a chapter to a biography of George Lucas' childhood and pre-Star Wars years, then covers each movie in detail, with some additional chapters for the period between the original trilogy and the prequels, as well as a "where do we go from here" chapter at the end.

I recommend this book for any Star Wars fan, as well as for the casual reader.

........Which in no way rebuts anything in a brief guide to Star Wars 8)

Call me cynical but the late in the day pledges of sexagenarian & octogenarian billionaires, many of whom have questionably accumulated that vast wealth doesn't make me swoon.

Questionably accumulated? How so? I have never heard of any rumours, unsubstantiated or otherwise that he questionably accumulated anything?

There's also the George Lucas educational foundation, his own charity, which brings education to under-privileged children not to mention all the equipment and facilities that he has freely donated to the university that he attended. If you were to take the time to read up on the man you will discover that his philanthropic tendencies began very early in his career.

Not sure what's wrong with our culture that we have to hate on someone who is really good at what they do and has made a success of their lives :(
