"Skywalking" is the first and still the best biography of George Lucas. It's also the most accurate: it is the only biography that truthfully acknowledges the important contributions of his ex-wife Marcia. Subsequent biographies and documentaries completely ignore her work at George's request (even the otherwise excellent "Empire Of Dreams" has this flaw), which is a terrible shame. Her editing was integral to the success of both "American Graffiti" and "Star Wars," (along with other great New Hollywood films like "Taxi Driver") and it's sad that so many other histories fail to acknowledge her role. "Skywalking" also offers an excellent look at the time when Lucasfilm transitioned from a San Francisco workspace for George and his friends to the massive, isolated compound of Skywalker Ranch. Unlike other restrospectives, "Skywalking" is untainted by revisionist history, and is essential reading for Star Wars fans as well as film buffs.
