This is quite possibly the definitive book on Star Wars and its history, covering how Star Wars evolved from a light fairy tale in space to the Tragedy of Darth Vader, how George Lucas found himself transformed overnight from a small filmmaker into a mythmaker, and the crushing personal cost Lucas paid for his success. Using original scripts, outlines, and hundreds of interviews, Michael Kaminski has pieced together how the Star Wars saga came to be, the very month that Darth Vader became Luke Skywalker's father, the transformation of the prequel trilogy from the early adventures of Obi Wan Kenobi to the rise and seduction of Anakin Skywalker, and how the public history of Star Wars was revised at least twice to match the most current vision of the Star Wars saga."Link to Original Source
