it was amazing

This book is AMAZING! Just AMAZING!

The time, care, love and attention that went into this thing is awe inspiring!

The Jedi Council doesn't exist, neither do real Jedi, yet to read this book makes it all seem plausible, it all tracks. It's wrote in the sincerest form with an eye to teaching Jedi initiates about the journey they will soon undertake, IF they have the heart and the nerve.

It covers EVERYTHING from the seven forms of Jedi lightsaber combat styles to the Knighthood Trials, from Force using animals (oh yes!) to the old Jedi/Sith myths and folklore that went before. In short, it's penned as a SERIOUS handbook for padawans to study like a shorthand manual to finding his or her destiny in the Force.

It's sincerity, it's attention to detail, it's prose, it's beautifully archaic style parchment printed paper, it's wonderfully elaborate detailed drawings and paintings, it's technically stylised schematics, just bowled me over! It continues to further impress me with every reading!

Yes, it's geeky, yes, it's over the top, but it's commitment to realism is so impressive, you simply give in to it.

This is a wonderful tome. Essential for any Star Wars fan, enlightening for any casual reader. This is where geek becomes cool, people. Right here.
