I ordered the Jedi Path and Book of Sith as a pre-order bundle. They arrived yesterday (4/22/13) and I read them both that evening. I enjoyed both books, but the Book of Sith is the superior of the two.

The book is broken up into several sections; each section has a different page format, making it truly look like a compendium of different books. The book itself is about the size of a standard journal. The cover is made from red leather, which is a step up from the canvas cover of The Jedi Path.

After an introduction by Darth Sidious, we begin with the journal of Sorzus Syn, one of the original Dark Lords of the Sith whom was banished by the Jedi following the Hundred-Year Darkness who provides her own history, the history of the Sith species (known as Sith Purebloods) and the make-up of the Sith Empire at that time. Next comes a field journal written by Darth Malgus (from the Old Republic MMO), which goes into Malgus's disgust of the Sith Empire's self-serving bureaucracy, which dovetails nicely into ... Darth Bane (my favorite Sith Lord) who instituted the Rule of Two after the fall of the Brotherhood of Darkness (the incarnation of the Sith Empire during his era). Even if you've read the Darth Bane novel trilogy, this section presents a fresh first-person perspective from the man himself.

Mother Talzin's section is the low-point of the book. Sidious explains including this section even though the Nightsisters are obviously not Sith because their insights are worth preserving, but both the content and the artwork in this section are the worst of the book. The artwork is made up of mostly of photo shopped cosplayers dressed up as Nightsisters (and Nightbrothers) photo shopped to give them force abilities.

This book is worth every penny. It's truly incredible among all other Star Wars books as 100% of the book is created as a book that combines several of the most powerful Sith/Dark Side users unique teachings and so forth. Each different "Volume" in this "Tome" even makes the edges of each different and absolutely unique, drawing you more and more into the Star Wars universe as if you're part of that universe and are actually looking upon a book of amazing power and forbidden secrets.

You would think that going any farther in creating this book to pull you into the Star Wars Galaxy would be impossible, yet it is done so beautifully as almost every page you read there are notes made, each in their own completely unique handwriting and personality by Darth Sidious, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu, Yoda, Asajj Ventress, and so forth.

The book is the most beautifully made I have ever seen from cover to cover the quality is jaw dropping. I own every Star Wars Extended Universe Novel written, dictionaries/encyclopedia, language guide, Star Wars Atlas, DnD rule books, and the books that would be categorized with the Jedi vs Sith definitive guide book which in its self is a must have, although regardless of all of this I have to say point for point "The Book of Sith" is and will remain the top Star Wars book of its category.

In conclusion if you're a Star Wars fan and especially if you're like myself and side with/firm supporter of the Sith ways and Dark Side not having this book is a cruelty and injustice upon yourself that you shouldn't endure for another second!

PS: The original book released a year ago was part of an awful idea.

The immoral, selfish ways of the dark side are wonderfully laid out for comparison and contrast with our own approach to social and economic "morality"...we prize the type A personality as too would the Sith! Anyway, use it with son to donate ate how not to live and treat others.

I really love Star Wars, and I also really love the Sith and the Empire. It's cool to root for the bad guys and the Sith are a group who have such a rich history and story to them that it's easy to enjoy reading about them.

However this book was a little lacking for my tastes.

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***

This book has 6 different sections not including the preface. Each section is on a different style of paper and slightly different color to make it look like this is one book that has been cobbled together from fragments of other works. The book also has little notes in the margins from people like Luke, Vader, Mace, Palpatine, Ventress, Vos, etc and I'll admit that's kinda cool.

So let's examine each section, shall we?

1. Journal of Sorzus Syn - This is pretty boring, it talks about some ancient Jedi being exiled and coming in contact with the original Sith. It only gets interesting when they discuss Korriban, weapons, amulets and holocrons. For some reason I really like reading about holocrons, don't ask why, it's just one of my quirks.

2. Field Journal of Darth Malgus - This is also boring, it's just a bunch of whining by this Sith lord who is in a war, and he is complaining that the war is hard and he's losing.

3. Rule of Two by Darth Bane - This is more like it! It goes into detail about the Rule of Two and really talks about what happened in the Darth Bane trilogy, one of my favorite Star Wars trilogies of all time, so it was awesome! This discusses the failure of the old Sith Brotherhood, talks about combat, building lightsabers, using them in combat, Sith armor and using the Force in battle. It's an awesome section!

4. Wild Power by Mother Talzin - This was also awesome!
