Star Wars: The Jedi Path — book review

STAR WARS: THE JEDI PATH by Daniel Wallace. Titan Books £12.99

Reviewed by Matthew Johns

Billed as ‘a manual for students of The Force’, this beautifully bound and presented book is a must have for any Star Wars fan, young or old. This book has purportedly been owned by such luminaries of The Force as Yoda, Dooku (before he turned to the dark side), Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Luke Skywalker amongst others.  It instructs students on the Jedi code, history of the order and the stages of being a Jedi – from Initiate, to Padawan, to Knight. Readers can learn about the fighting styles of the Jedi, the various orders within the Jedi and the trials that Initiates will face as they train to become a fully fledged Jedi Knight.

Throughout the book, annotations have been added to the pages by some of the previous owners. These remarks, ranging from sarcastic to caustic, give context to some of the book and also fill in some gaps in the mythology of the Jedi.

This is a fascinating work, beautifully illustrated by many acclaimed Star Wars illustrators and created in collaboration with Lucasfilm so you can be assured of its authenticity. This gem makes a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection – if you like Star Wars, you should seek out a copy. Use The Force if you must…
