Review

Another excellent read from D. W. Kreger! With this book, DW Kreger provides another excellent resource for your library. The book is very well written and full of little gems of wisdom, it s an easy read and I for one will be keeping it close by to refer to. --A. Riley

This is a very original take. It s no secret to Star Wars fans that Yoda is a Taoist. I ve read a few translations of the Tao and I d consider this to be a very good one. --Karnika E. Yashwant

The Force of Ages? The deeper into the book I got, the more the words of the Tao Te Ching -along with the Force and Jedi implants - whispered wisely to me. Tao of Yoda works! May the Force be with it. --K. R. Atma

With this book, DW Kreger provides another excellent resource for your library. I always enjoy learning from books of this kind. More and more these days, people are being drawn to this philosophy. The book itself is very well written and full of little gems of wisdom, it's an easy read and I for one will be keeping it close by to refer to.

It's no secret to Star Wars fans that Yoda is a Taoist. Still, this is a very original take on a text that probably has as many translations as the Bible. I've read a few translations of the Tao and I'd consider this to be a very good one. It definitely doesn't take the material lightly, as the title might imply. In other words, you don't have to be a fan of Yoda, Star Wars or George Lucas to get something out of it. My only complaint is that he didn't spend as much time as I would have liked on discussing the relationship between Star Wars and the Tao. But I suppose to a fan of the Star Wars that could be another book entirely.

I was intrigued by the promise of the title - was this a genuinely inspired mashup of ancient and modern or an opportunist offering appealing to the latent, gullible new-ager in me? The author draws upon his study of the Lao Tzu's work (The Secret Tao: Uncovering the hidden history and meaning of Lao Tzu) to argue that the key words Force and Jedi can be plausibly substituted into the Tao Te Ching. He remarks on the similarity of Star Wars' Yoda's phrasing and that of the Tao Te Ching. As I could remember only one phrase from Star Wars and no examples were provided, much of this argument was lost on me. Somewhat skeptical about the value of the exercise, I plowed through the pages of the adjusted Tao Te Ching. The deeper into the book I got, the more the words of the Tao Te Ching -along with the Force and Jedi implants - whispered wisely to me. Tao of Yoda works - may the Force be with it.

I really enjoy this kind of wisdom. It is very Karma based. I do agree with this philosophy. I love eastern philosophy. I think it is a beautiful culture we can all learn a lot from.
