" A good summary of Jedi history and beliefs as they've been developed over the course of the Star Wars movies and expanded universe fiction. It should be an interesting read to any fan of Star Wars, even those not overly enamored of the prequels.Unfortunately, it's not really worth the $100 price tag. The box is cool, and the handful of extras included are fun, but not worth it. If I were to include the price in my rating it would be much lower. " said.

" Some parts are better than others. I think this book gave me a better insight into the flaws of he Jedi, which was enjoyable. Some of the annotations were amusing, but they seemed too connected to story lines and events from the movies and EU. Too much dramatic irony in the comments. Many of them I couldn't imagine why someone would have annotated it. Seemed more things people would think when they read than actually write down. For example, I can't imagine Anakin annotating at all. " said.

" Well, there were a few errors here and there (Ahoska was attributed to several of Anakin's annotations, which was mildly annoying) but other than that, man was this fun to read. I'm ready to go out there and build myself a lightsaber and see how much I absorbed reading this. I still can't telekinetically use the Force to get the TV remote when it's on the other side of the room, but I'll keep trying. :) " said.

"This is the first in a series of Star Wars books that are presented as being in-universe artifacts. The Jedi Path is essentially a text book for students of the Force. The inside cover lists the previous owners of the book and includes such famous Jedi as Yoda, Count Dooku, Qui-Gon Jinn and Anakin Skywalker. The book also has many little props that you will find hidden in its pages, such as Qui-Gon's padawan braid, and a napkin on which Obi-Wan sketched the design for his new lightsaber. Much of the information in here, such as the history of the Jedi, forms of lightsaber combat, and Force disciplines are things that have been covered in other books, but never in this manner." said.

"I had this book for about a month and a half. I have read it cover to cover twice. I have to say I am very impressed. It provides a more detailed overview of the Jedi order and the Jedi code. It is written to look and feel like a handbook given to students upon arriving at the Jedi temple for training. It includes many "notes" written by Jedi who possessed the book Including Yoda, Luke, Kenobi, and Dooku to name a few. The illustrations are wonderful and add to the illusion of it being a handbook for Jedi. It includes detailed drawings of weapons, ships that Jedi use. I really enjoyed the different lightsaber hilts, and styles. I would recommend this to any Star Wars fan to add to their library." said.

"Does what it needs to, namely provide a clear, detailed overview of Jedi thought and practice with commentary from the book's distinguished lineage. Highlights include Anakin alternately bragging and whining about every bit of bureaucracy he comes across and the fact that Luke's signature makes an X-wing of the S and K in "Skywalker." Luke, you ridiculous loser. I needed to read this for a story I'm writing, Lord help me, and it gave me a lot of insight into the background details to writing a Jedi. Admittedly, I skimmed a few bits where it went over Sith things, but I think that there are worse flaws in life than "doesn't give a fuck about the Sith."

I suppose it'll have to be revised sometime in the next few years, since it includes a few references to EU material, but I'm still secretly hoping Mara Jade makes it into the new trilogy, so maybe parts of it can stay the same. Even as it is, however, it's a good resource for the worldbuilding of the Star Wars universe.

"Daniel Wallace is a master of shorthand. The Jedi Path, the Book of the Sith, the Bounty Hunter's Code, and the Imperial Handbook all are ripe with incredible real world philosophies and faiths.

A compendium of many mystic philosophies from many faiths across the world, the Jedi Path illuminates the audience to the culture, beliefs, and intentions of the Jedi Order before their moral break down in the Clone Wars and near extinction in the Imperial Age.

The book shows the many different types of Jedi, the many different missions they carry, and the many different skill specialties they employ, giving the best look into the life of a Jedi side we saw Luke's training in Empire Strikes Back.

The book also describes the Jedi's interpretation of the barely comprehensible Force, giving a sincere and simple description of the Force as a whole than we've ever seen.

Taking inspiration from many Asian Martial Arts and many spiritual and secular practices, this book also describes Jedi saber fencing and meditation techniques.

If a fan or their child wants to be a Jedi, or the Jedi are their favorite, this book is heavily recommended.

On a side note, since I'm a philosopher, I also recommend this book because it is a great starting point to dive into teaching about the world, world religion, religious conflict, martial arts, morality, politics, etc.

"I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

Just finished reading it, despite having my course-works due in the next few days.

This is a definitive read for those who wants to really follow the Jedi Path!

There's so many exciting things that combine together to make this book the awesome-st of the awesome-st.

There's the annotations from Qui Gon, Obi Wan, Anakin, Ahsoka, Darth Sidious and of course Luke Skywalker - and all parts of the story fit together.

The manuscript really sounds believable as thought it was discovered, as Luke himself explained in a note.

The extras are just pure awesome as well.

I believe that compared with the Book of Sith, the Jedi Manual is much, much better in terms of information and the souvenirs that we get.

Here is my short back ground on the book:

We get the extra stuffs - the Jedi Holocron, the Jedi Braid, a medallion, maps, a note from Luke, and a parchment of the Jedi Code, which I love the most.

We have a manual, that is well written, interestingly by several Jedi Masters/Battlemasters/Weaponmasters and such on every aspect of the Jedi Order, from weapons, to force powers (and those which are forbidden), a short history about the Sith and themselves (including about Darth Bane, for those who read the series, you'd be amused at the 'lack' of specific information from them, haha). Literally everything, also about the 3 Jedi types (Consulars, Sentinels and Guardians). I classify myself as a Jedi Consular! I must say also that these 3 types are what is most described in the book - but it always keeps it interesting, never boring.

I read the Book of Sith and it seemed a heck of a lot more disorganized - well that is meant to be. But then its contents do not fully uncover everything, not as much as the Jedi Manual.

Highly recommended, keep this treasured forever!

May the Force Be With You!
