Star Wars: Heir to the Empire: Behind the Scenes is a special recording that features new commentary by author Timothy Zahn and editor Betsy Mitchell, written for the 20th anniversary edition of Heir to the Empire, read by Zahn and Mitchell. Included here is audio from the that new unabridged recording to enhance their comments.
The biggest event in the history of Star Wars books, Heir to the Empire follows the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after they led the Rebel Alliance to victory in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Informative. Fun. Insightful.
There isn't another book quite like it. I wish more books took this behind the scenes approach especially with the other Star Wars novels. I would love to hear behind the scenes on the major Star Wars novels. Darth Plagueis I'm looking at you!
I have not heard their previous works. This is my first foray but from that alone I was very impressed it felt like a DVD documentary but for books. I loved every moment of it.
This book gave me another dimension to the story from the author's POV. I wish it was longer! It had everything. There were plenty of surprises on how it came to be which left me giddy.
I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Star Wars in general but also is curious on the inner workings of the author's journey in making such a tale, this is for you.
The information is very interesting that is presented. However the playing a bit of the book and then fading out to a Timothy Zahn or Betsy Mitchell comment takes a bit to get used to. Kind of like watching a movie with commetary track on.
This was a great insight into the challenges author Timothy Zahn faced in kickstarting the EU. This is not something I would have normally purchased (unless it came free with the set), but I don't regret this one at all.
