Few books tied to iconic movie series are as playful or as well-thought-out as The Jedi Path. From the conceit that the book consists of a series of documents discovered "near the ruins of Byss" to the inclusion of coins, badges, and other artifacts, the contributors have managed to create a tactile and delightful addition to the Star Wars canon. Introductory sections set out the Jedi Code and history of the Jedi Order, while later sections discuss such subjects as the three pillars, becoming an apprentice, and advanced lightsaber techniques. Not only is the text copiously illustrated, but some pages are mischievously ripped out (the Prophecy of the Chosen One) and supposedly handwritten annotations by Obi-Wan Kenobi and others add to the experience. Particularly enjoyable is a galactic bestiary featuring such creatures as a Jodakan needler crab, Mygeetan whiteworm, and the furry but cranky-looking o’cerry. For those who prefer history, an explanation of "The Second Great Schism and the Final War" provides further illumination on the role of the Sith in the Star Wars mythos. The creators of The Jedi Path clearly love Star Wars, and just as clearly wanted to pass that love on to readers. Highly recommended as a gift book for all Jedi enthusiasts, from rank beginners to grand masters. --Jeff VanderMeer

Good but a little expensive for what you get and the case is a bit gimmicky. Still, I collect SW books so I had to have it anyway :)Published 22 days ago by Carl G Wilson
A good Novelty item. Wasn't expecting it to be as big as it was but it is completely cool. Makes an awesome hatch opening type of noise and the book rises from inside of the case. Read morePublished 22 days ago by M. Von Jaeger
