" An awesome piece of lore. I liked reading and finding the connections to actual philosophies such as Zen Buddhism and Tao. I wish there were more lightsaber related content though. It'd be way awesome if someone took existing fencing/sword codices and used their content to make a lightsaber "velocities" manual. " said.

" A great little book for anyone who wants to know a little more about the Star Wars universe. I'm not even close in knowledge to a passionate fan, so keep in mind my opinion is from someone who knows nothing more than the movies.I would have given it five stars because it was really amusing, however I disagree with too much of the Jedi philosophy, so I stole one star for that. " said.

" 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.
