This book has some thins that feel EXTREMELY far fetched. They spend a lot of time talking about mineclorians, which does ruin the mystique of the Force, and I personally don’t like it. They also have lots of segments that delve into things that don’t make a whole lot of sense (like how if you fail the Jedi Trials, you have to go on a fasting diet for 3 weeks and meditate before taking them again.)
Overall it’s a good read. I recommend it for fans and people who just like in universe books.
But, overall, the book was a very enjoyable read. It would have been very dry, very boring reading without the annotations, but WITH the annotations, especially as they are with each generation commenting for themselves, and also responding the generations before them -- it is QUITE interesting.
4 stars :)

However, it's very insubstantial. There's not much content - and what is there is often spaced out rather than being concisely presented. What's more, as some of the contents are meant to remain hidden (as forbidden knowledge) so they're crossed out - resulting in page after page being unreadable! In consequence, the actual contents of this book can be read through in a very short period of time.
I got the impression that as "A Manual for Students of the Force" this book is simply too short. It's as if you can learn how to become a Jedi in less than two hours! This is an example of style over substance ... the idea behind this book and the quality of the publication are good, but there's very little to actually engage with.
Nonetheless, as a display item this is a nice book. And it's fun to flick through. For these reasons I do recommend it to fan of Star Wars - so long as it's reasonably priced (i.e. under £5).
The lore housed within the book is excellent and very informative and the explanation of what the Jedi and Sith stand for is very interesting. It's also nice to see the seven styles of lightsaber form beautifully laid out and the entire thing is gorgeously illustrated.
No regrets, would buy this again over and over and it's become a cherished part of my library already! I also bought the Book of Sith, something I recommend all do as the contrasts make them even more beautiful to read.
The book also touches upon things like space craft, alien species and the dark side of The Force, all accompanied by colour illustrations.
