^Heir to the Empire is the first book of Zahn's "Thrawn Trilogy," which was the beginning of the modern age of Star Wars tie-ins (before then they were intermittent and lacked the modern interconnectedness) and is generally well-regarded in fandom. Be aware that the three books tell a single really long story a la Lord of the Rings. Heir to the Empire is just the first act of the story and isn't a complete tale in itself. Parts 2 & 3 are Dark Force Rising and The Last Command.
Thanks for the info Chris. I was lucky to have recived the three novels for Christmas and I plan on reading them over the next few months. Don't worry my BBS friends, I have a few Trek books I'll read in between I like Star Wars but I enjoy Star Trek much more
