Mysteries of the Jedi is a dynamic visual guide that brings the Star Wars galaxy to life for a new generation of Star Wars fans.

My Opinion:
I think this is one of the best books that has references to all of the movies made in a series. It covers the newest and the oldest, and puts it in a format that makes more sense than if you watched the movies in sequence.
The best  part is, being a Star Wars fan, you actually learn information you may not have known previously. An example, I have seen all the films, but had no idea what a valuable, strong and important character Mace, (Samuel L. Jackson), was. Then I read this book, and it tells you all about his powers, and why he is so very important. Things you just don't catch or even get told in the movies.
So believe when I say, it may be a book geared for kids, but it's the adult who watched the original over 20 years ago that will really love this one!

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
