Here’s my personally-selected list of positive, generally pro-prequel books to hunt down and read:
1. The Dharma Of Star Wars by Matthew Bortolin, Wisdom Publications (2005). A Buddhist look at the Star Wars saga. It was published shortly before ROTS came out so its discussion of the prequels is limited to TPM and AOTC, but the whole book is very interesting even if you aren’t a Buddhist.
2. Anticipation: The Real Life Story Of Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace by Jonathan Bowen (2005). Nothing but facts about the run-up to TPM’s release and its blocbuster run.
3. Revenge: The Real Life Story Of Star Wars Episode III Revenge Of The Sith by Jonathan Bowen (2007). A follow up on “Anticipation” with more amazing facts about AOTC and ROTS.
