Editorial Reviews

Review

"What's great about the books in the Psych Geeks series, however, is that they are amenable for both casual reading and deeper study alike... A fan of Star Wars, you are? Then check out Star Wars Psychology, you should. And if you're a psychology buff, especially, this is most certainly the Star Wars book you're looking for." - Pop Mythology

"...an absorbing read, examining the ideas and core values of why we love Star Wars, encouraging us think about the movies and characters in new and unpredictable ways. There's something for everyone in this fun and fascinating volume, a good addition to any Star Wars fan's bookshelf." - The BiblioSanctum

"That's the beauty of this book and Star Wars, it makes you think. I highly recommend this to any Star Wars fan that wants to dig a little deeper into why the characters we've come to know and love act as they do." - The Cantina Cast

"...a collection of thought-provoking essays and psychological analyses of the films, including themes of villainy and heroism, gender and family. (Spoiler: the Skywalker family has some serious issues.)" - Kirkus Reviews

From the Author

"We are so fortunate to have Dr. Travis Langley and his outstanding contributors' new book, Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind. May the Force be with you as you read, learn, and rediscover why you love Star Wars."
- Carrie Goldman, from her foreword

"When Jung described the dark side of the mind, he referred to the part that is shadowed and hidden deep inside. It might not be evil at all.... While we are certainly not all Jungians, all of us bringing you this book do believe that the hidden, unrevealed part of the human nature is worth exploring. Both the light and dark sides unite in us all."
- Dr. Travis Langley, from his introduction

Format: Paperback
I received this as a random gift for Christmas. It is a very interesting book which raises intriguing questions and draws many lines between Star Wars and psychology. However, for every time I was pleased by this book there are errors that stop it from meeting its potential.

Most chapters are independent essays that raise a different question, or examine certain psychological characteristics within the Star Wars universe. Therefore, there is a different author and writing style for each chapter. Some chapters are written excellently. Others, however, are full of mistakes; grammatical mistakes, mislabling of figures and diagrams, and a failure to correctly cite which Star Wars movie is being referred to.

This book seemed like a great idea; it combined my interest in psychology with my love of Star Wars. However, it does not appear to be edited very well. Failure to identify simple grammatical and citation errors, in addition to the greater frustration of not properly referencing Star Wars, lead this book not not reach its potential.

It is okay, 3 out of 5. Worth about 5 bucks, or worth a read if you get it for free.
