Description

Christopher Bird does an excellent job of breaking the ideas of the path down three simple and clear ideas (referred to as pillars) and building every new concept on top of them in a way that the book feels cumulative rather than simply covering parts of a whole.

I also appreciate that Bird notes multiple times that the films are inspiration but not gospel, and that if an idea presented in the films is either unhealthy or unworkable in the real world, that there are very sensible ways to keep the “spirit” of those concepts while living in the real world. We are part of an energy larger than ourselves, and we play roles in a cosmic fabric that outstrip our incarnate understanding.”Several characters have annotated the text, and some have even gone on to comment on the remarks of others. Some of the Emperor’s responses were very amusing. This is all well and good, but the problem is that this book actually exists. The idea behind this is that the book passed through the hands of many Jedi and eventually into the Emperor’s possession; it went from Yoda to Anakin to the Emperor to Luke Skywalker. The Emperor has crossed out the part of the book that marks the coming of the chosen one and the destruction of the dark side, so why would he not destroy the book completely? Throughout Star Wars history, we can see the evolution of lightsabers in a nice perspective. The very first lightsabers, developed nearly 7000 BBY, when metal swords were still cool, weren’t very practical, as they required a power-source with a cable strapped to one’s belt. However, when a new technology allowed lightsabers to be powered up by a crystal unit implemented directly in the saber, they became extremely deadly weapons. As part of the Jedi training, each apprentice had to build his or her own lightsaber, after they mastered their training sabers. Throughout the history, various lightsaber combat forms were developed, and I will try to explain the strengths and weaknesses of each of them. Niman, The Way of the Rancor, or The Moderation Form, is the 6 th form of the great seven. The most balanced form, taking techniques and sequences from all the other forms, is mostly used by the Jedi who preferred a life of balance. Combining simpler defensive and offensive techniques, the form allowed users to calmly, yet effectively disarm opponents while focusing their force abilities as well. The sixth form can be extremely deadly in the hands of a user whose preference lies in balancing lightsaber skills and force abilities. This was very effectively demonstrated by Exar Kun, one of the greatest lightsaber duelist. Resolution of Censure Condemning Saw Gerrera of the Partisans (First identified as Resolution of Censure Condemning Saw Gerrera of the Partisans) As the Imperial Empire expands, high-ranking officials from each branch of the Imperial Military have set down tactical guidelines and procedures for all newly ascending commanders. Set in-universe, this compendium of ordinance, mission reports, and Imperial philosophy was intercepted by members of the Rebel Alliance, some of whom also left commentary scribbled in the margins. Housed in a deluxe case that opens with lights and sounds, this never-before-seen Imperial Handbook is perfect for Star Wars fans—on both sides of the Rebellion.

A great example is Darth Zannah from the Bane trilogy. Since she was slightly built with less than average height, the use of Djem So would not be very useful to her, but with her double-bladed lightsaber, the mastery of Soresu made her nearly invincible. The book's in-universe history is that it is the third edition of a Jedi training guide, printed in 115 BBY, and survived the Great Jedi Purge in the possession of Darth Sidious. It was recovered by Squib salvagers near the remains of Byss, and given to Luke Skywalker.This next bit is me personally raging due to seeing the 3-D Clone Wars movie. Sorry.) The author did a good job with this. I can say without a doubt that Ahsoka Tano sounds just as annoying on paper as she did on the blue screen.

One more thing of note: This is presented as a kind of training manual for Jedi padawans, but it's not realistic in that capacity. There's too much levity in the text itself, and it comes across as conversational in tone. This is not something I would expect from a textbook or any kind of book one would give to a student. This narrows the target audience even further for now you need someone who is passionate about the canon for its knowledge yet willing to not take it too seriously, and just how many super fanboys do you find who are built like that? I'm super serial here; I've seen the most passionate arguments on Star Wars message boards about things I couldn't begin to follow. One I saw just after Revenge of the Sith came out was about Mace Windu's lightsaber style, something called Vaapad which is briefly mentioned in this book, and why he was able to hang with the Emperor while every other Jedi was taken out like they learned their lightsaber skills from a single tee-ball practice. I imagine the participants in this discussion looked something like this: Notable users: Darth Traya, General Grievous, Luke Skywalker, Master Yoda, Kyle Katarn, Kit Fisto, Meetra Surik, Lucien Draay Here Are All The Star Wars Covers in The Last Jedi Book Series by Breznican, Anthony on ew.com ( July 20, 2017) (archived from the original) Housed in a protective case, this rare glimpse into the military governance and philosophy of the Empire offers a unique perspective for those on both sides of the rebellion. Notable users: Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Aayla Secura, Plo Koon, Revan, Darth Maul, Seth-Harth, Kas’im

Master Sooloot believed the prophecy dated from the First Greath Schism, and that the line about the Sith was added later to refine the original text.
