The older digital copies are essentially the same content, but the published version is cleaner, much better written and organized, has additional info, and also is a hell of a lot easier to read. Its also been edited better and has an index. Personally, for 27 bucks at amazon.com I'd say its a worthwhile purchase if you like what you see. Although you can read the first 100 pages of the final published version online--I'd start with that rather than the older version if I were you, at least for the first chapters.

Just so it comes out of the mouth of someone other than the author, this most certainly is worth $27 bucks! And it really is a lot easier to read than the pdf on the computer. It is a really thick book. Not really light on the computer type reading. When I first read it back in its pdf only days, I kept wishing there was a print version because I couldn't stop reading it, but I was getting really sick of staring at a glowing screen. I had it on my "to do" list to actually have all the pages printed out nicely someplace, and then to bind the thing myself (book binding is a bit of a hobby of mine). Need less to say, I was quite thrilled when I heard this was actually going to be published.

Even if you are a huge fan of Lucas, and someone who really loves the prequels, this book means you, and will do you, no harm whatsoever. If you wanted you could take it as an extreme and extensive attack against GL, or you could realize and appreciate what the author is trying to do and enjoy the ride. In other words, if you don't start reading the book feeling certain it is going to offend you because it is attacking your hero, then more than likely, it isn't going to offend you. The book presents facts, or at the very least precieved facts based on the available evidence, and it contains mountains of sources to back up every word that is written.

Go out and buy it, you know you want to. If you don't yet, I am sure you will by the time you read the first 100 pages, or really wish you had after needed a precription for a new pair of eye glasses due to burning your eyes out reading the entire pdf version.

I can't stand reading books on the computer. Reading a book the old fashioned way is something technology will never be able to beat for me.

I read the original PDF as well, and subsequently bought it when it came out. Definitely worth it.
