Much like the other Essential Guides, Alien Species covers a particular part of the Star Wars Expanded Universe with text and images. The images deserve a mention because the style is less cartoony than some of the previous editions of The Essential Guide and this book is better for it. The sketches are a little more "realistic" looking and in line with the Star Wars movies. This book came out around the time of Phantom Menace so it also has a stronger focus on what is important in the Star Wars ...more

It seems to me that while this book is quite detailed and very fun to read there are some alien creatures that are missing. There is no mention of the events that occurred in episode 2 or 3, which is unfortunate because so many other Star Wars novels were used as reference. Overall a good, but incomplete read; perhaps there is a more current version out there.
