It's a much different book. The Locations book only covers areas shown in the films. It provides very well done graphics of city scapes, compounds, and buildings, with a lot of explanations of what you are looking at. And includes many cross-sections, including Ben's house and the cantina on Tatooine (in much greater detail then which has been done before). It also has a great foldout section of the ice compound on Hoth - I could look at that one section for hours at a time. It also has maps showing battle locations and advancement routes. Many of the things shown in this book have been done in other Star Wars books but never to this extent or quality. I recommend that everyone go to your local book store and check it out.
