This little book is much denser and more heavily researched than I anticipated. It is packed with fascinating information. More than just showing how Star Wars was influenced by Hinduism, it takes beliefs and experiences from Eastern philosophy and shows how both Star Wars and Hinduism support them. It goes into tremendous depth.
There is an introduction about Joseph Campbell and his connection to the making of Star Wars and there are quotes from George Lucus, but it is also full of footnotes and...more
This one didn't live up to my expectations, but it still had some good info in it! I enjoyed learning more about Vaishnavism...a Hindu religion close to my heart. No regrets on reading it, though--it just could've been a big essay instead of a whole book--it was really dragged out.
