The Jedi Path, Fully Illustrated, with Removable Features and a Mechanical Vault With the push of a button, the doors of the vault open in a wash of light and Star Wars sound effects. The inner platform rises, revealing this exclusive edition of The Jedi Path. This ancient training manual, crafted by early Jedi Masters, has educated and enlightened generations of Jedi. It explains the history and hierarchy of the Jedi Order, and what Jedi must know to take their place as defenders of the peace in the galaxy—from mastery of the Force to the nuances of lightsaber combat. Passed down from Master to Padawan, the pages of this venerable text have been annotated by those who have held it, studied it, and lived its secrets. From Yoda and Luke Skywalker to Count Dooku and Darth Sidious, they have shaped the content of the book by leaving mementos tucked within the pages, tearing out pages, and adding their personal experiences as tangible reminders of the lessons they’ve learned. Through wars and rebellion, only a single copy of this manual has survived. It is now passed on to you. The ancient Masters who wrote the text: Fae Coven, Grand Master and head of the Jedi Council; Crix Sunburris, Jedi Ace starfighter pilot; Restelly Quist, Jedi Chief Librarian; Skarch Vaunk, Jedi Battlemaster and lightsaber expert; Bowspritz, Jedi Biologist and expert on the Living Force; Sabla-Mandibu, Jedi Seer and Holocron expert; Morrit Ch’gally, Jedi Recruiter; Gal-Stod Slagistrough, Jedi leader of the Agricultural Corps.

A breakdown of the book:
Part 1-Introduction to the Jedi Order
This part contains information on the Jedi Code (there is no death, there is the Force) and much needed history of the Jedi. The book is written well before the events of Eps1-6, so much of the information on the current activities are absent. Yoda even comments "Updated, this section should be." Whereupon Dooku says, "So update it, old one!" Another hilarous note, Yoda comments on knowing Grand Master Fae Coven (author of the Jedi Code chapter) as a youngling, and Ahsoka comments "Yoda was a youngling?!"
Part 2-Jedi Initiate
This section deals with "younglings" (as seen in Ep2) and how they begin their studies. It also features the trials needed to be undertaken for advancement into padawan status. It also details the three pillars of the Jedi (Force, knowledge and self-discipline). This section has many valuable insights into the minds of Dooku, Anakin and Obi-Wan.
Part 3-Jedi Padawan
Next up, this section deals with many aspects of training, lightsaber combat styles and building a lightsaber. It also mentions the cultures and politics of the Republic, as well as the Trials and Knighting ceremony. This section has a LOT of notes, and some notes by Sidious. It is interesting to note that Anakin mentions "phrik" deposits on Gromas (and should mention it to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine). This is the site of one level of "Dark Forces" (the PC/PSX game) and you blow it up. Also, Sidious mentions that the "Outbound Flight project" was a "Jedi failure," to which Luke responds that they are alive in the unknown regions (Luke and the New Republic found the survivors of the Outbound Flight project some years AFTER the Battle of Endor, and Luke had "The Jedi Path" at this point). Extremely interesting.
Part 4-Jedi Knight
This includes the roles and duties of Jedi Knights, the three basic classes (consular, sentinel and guardian), Alter abilites, advanced lightsaber techniques and taking on padawan learners. Also, it has a brief history of the Sith, and the dangers of the Dark Side. It also has the requirements of being a Master and Grand Master, as well as a short brief on transcending death (apparently Anakin didn't really read this section while in possession of this book. Luke's comments on this are fascinating).
Overall, I would give this book a 5 out of 5. The production value is awesome, and the information is enlightening. I would recommend this book for any fan. Add it to your collection, and you won't be disappointed. Also, if you are a fan of the Saga Edition of the Star Wars RPG, this book will really enhance your game sessions. The information is presented in easy-to-reference manner, all you have to do is look up the title heading. It will give your Jedi characters different views on the Jedi themselves, as well as much-needed lightsaber combat forms. Get it, read it, enjoy it. Kudos to Daniel Wallace and the team for creating a high-quality, multi-purpose book.
Star Wars – The Jedi path by Daniel Wallace, is a book that seeks out to supplant the Star Wars Universe with additional information for fans of all types.
Woven within the pages of the book are the many intricacies that are required by those fascinated by the Jedi Path.
Although notably a quick read, the book contains rather detailed and quite in-depth information regarding all aspects of the Jedi Order.
Not only does the book do an adequate job of introducing the reader to the Jedi Order, but it also heads deeper than that.
From there the book goes on to break down the Jedi Order into its various parts: Initiates, Padawans, and Jedi Knights. Within each of these sections a further breakdown is carried out outlining many of the details that are needed in order to progress towards the next stage.
Another intriguing component of the book is the fact that the book takes you through the history of who owned it as it was passed down from Master to Padawan [Master Yoda, Dooku, Qui-Gon Jinn, Ahsoka Tano, etc.] and when that took place. Additionally, sprinkled throughout the book are small annotations where each of these characters input their insights and commentary. It definitely adds a rather unique and authentic flavor to the book seeing each of the personalities of these characters shine through, or hint at darker elements, such as comments by Anakin.
Compellingly written, the author does a brilliant job of bringing authenticity to the Jedi Universe in a way that any serious fan would appreciate.
Further information contained within the book are what the Three Pillars Of The Jedi are, information on lightsaber use and techniques, the various types of Jedi Knights, some history, and much more. Even the importance of meditation within the Jedi discipline is mentioned in various instances, which was kind of interesting since it echoes the sentiments of Eastern Philosophy and many Martial Arts.
In sum, if you know someone that’s a Star Wars fan, and is interested in a deeper layer of the Jedis, then this book is definitely a great read.
