The Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual is a reference book from Del Rey,

The Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual is a reference book from Del Rey, written by Ryder Windham and illustrated by Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff. There is really no way to describe it other than The Essential Guide to the Millennium Falcon. At 128 pages long, it contains both schematics and full color illustrations, supplemented by text detailing every aspect of the Falcon possible.

Inside you will find the history of the YT series, blueprints and specifics on YT-1300 and its sister models, summary of Millenium Falcon's own long history, profiles of its most notable owners, multiple cutaways of the ship, entire sections dedicated to specific systems, visual guide to various sections of the ship plus the flight techniques that make the ship a danger to starfighters and Star Destroyers alike.

Also in this torrent you will find the Millennium Falcon: A 3-D Owner's Guide by the same creative team. Released by Scholastic shortly before the Workshop Manual, it is a much more condensed version of it, at only 22 pages long and focusing on visuals instead of text. Unfortunately, as you can see from the Book's Trailer, it was designed as a three-dimensional "board book", with focus on interaction. Because of that it proved a nightmare to scan, and even then the scanned version eliminated every feeling of three dimensional interaction. Though some will no doubt find it interesting, the scan does not represent this book justly - it's one of those rare cases where only the physical copy will give you the full experience.
