    This was a delightful surprise in my Loot Crate this past month, that turned out to be far more amazing than it appeared on the tin. The book is written as a language guide & travelogue for the universe/world's/race's included there, with several expected commentaries on social mores, traditions, and interactions. Which was cute -- But what surprised me was the last fourth of the book, directly by the author reveals the author to be the guy who has worked sound and languages behind-the-scenes for This was a delightful surprise in my Loot Crate this past month, that turned out to be far more amazing than it appeared on the tin. The book is written as a language guide & travelogue for the universe/world's/race's included there, with several expected commentaries on social mores, traditions, and interactions. Which was cute -- But what surprised me was the last fourth of the book, directly by the author reveals the author to be the guy who has worked sound and languages behind-the-scenes for every single Star War's movie out there. He talked about all the sounds and how he found them, how he made the languages, the best parts and the worst flops, and I felt deeply engrossed in another part of the creation of that world. Definitely on high advisement for people who love this series.

    Some of the example sentences are roll-your-eyes silly (such as, "Who was the Wookiee I saw you with last night?"), and some of the lists of words start to blur in the reader's head. I never did find out everything that freaky albino Twi'lek in Return of the Jedi was saying, either, darn it. But it was interesting and often entertaining to learn about the amount of thought that went into the creation of alien and droid languages and sounds and to find out things like the reason why R2D2 regist Some of the example sentences are roll-your-eyes silly (such as, "Who was the Wookiee I saw you with last night?"), and some of the lists of words start to blur in the reader's head.

A fun book for Star Wars fans.

    This book makes my nerdy heart so happy!! Someone put some real work into this & it is still solid information. (And yes, I realize I might have just hit a new nerd level by attempting to learn some non-existent languages from a famous nerd movie.) This book makes my nerdy heart so happy!!

    I read this book for two reasons: One, for Sergio Aragones art work. TWo, for the non-fiction section that dealt with how the sound effects were done.

    I'm a casual Star Wars fan, but I picked this up mainly as a big fan of Sergio Aragones's cartoons, which oddly don't grace the book's cover itself. The first part of the book is presented as a tongue-in-cheek but virtually unreadable (to me) foreign phrase book of the alien languages of the Star Wars universe. The second was a fascinating first-hand account of sound designer Ben Burtt's work developing and recording those alien languages in the original trilogy and beyond.

It intriguingly includes a translations of what characters are saying in various scenes including when Han is talking to Greedo or what R2D2 is saying in the opening scene of A New Hope.

    The beginning of this book is a fun little joke, but doesn't read through very well. It reads like the travel guide that it is supposed to be. If you really want to learn some Huttese or Ewok, it is great for some small tidbits of that. Otherwise, skim this section and jump to the end. The last part about how Ben Burtt went about creating sounds for Star Wars was incredibly interesting. It made the whole book worthwhile. So fascinating!

    The nerd in me was excited to pick this up used for cheap and the Sergio Aragones illustrations are an added bonus, having loved his stuff in MAD for years. The behind the scenes story written by the "sound god" Ben Burtt are an awesome chapter to have as well, but I would only recommend it to people who totally want to nerd out while watching the films.

    Awesome little book for learning about the various Star Wars languages and how sound genius Ben Burtt created them.

    A fun little gift book style thing. I feel like there is some research and consistency lacking for a 'rigorous' attempt at this.
