Chronicle Books, San Francisco: 2011. h Hardcover. Brand new book. 
Everyone's been there—you're playing holo chess with a Wookiee, and things get out of hand. You've done something to offend him, but you don't know what. How can you defuse the situation? Better yet, how can you make sure you never end up there again? With intergalactic travel easier than ever, Wookiees can now be found on nearly every planet in the galaxy and on starships everywhere in between. This helpful guide teaches citizens of the galaxy key phrases in the Wookiee language, eliminating near-fatal encounters with notoriously short-tempered Wookiees while smoothing the way to lasting partnerships and friendships. The handy sound module—recorded by Chewbacca himself!—demonstrates proper pronunciation of ten key phrases. Wu Kee Smith is an expert on the Wookiee language and culture. He is the author of the Galactic News best-selling book The Wookiee in the Tree. He splits his time between San Francisco, California, and Kashyyyk. JAKe was born in Hull, England, but was raised by Wookiees from a young age. He speaks the Wookiee language fluently, but with a strong northern accent. He now lives and works in London, and would never use a cheap Jedi mind-trick to make you visit
