Product Description

Product Description

To some, nothing is greater. “It's an energy field created by all living things,” with “the ability to destroy a planet.” While to others, it’s “a hokey religion” and “a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.” The concept made famous in the Star Wars saga (described in this way by Obi-Wan, Darth Vader and Han Solo) is just as controversial and popular today as it was thirty years ago and 3000 years ago. This same inherent energy has been applied throughout history, both to heal and harm. From its origins predating Qigong and Tai Chi, through Kung-fu (wushu) Iaido, Aikido, and Yoga, the Force has had many names.

The beginning chapters cover the Force as it relates to the blockbuster movies that made it so popular, but then deviate to explain the history and early applications. The process of how energy interacts with matter is explained in detail, and then dozens of exercises are illustrated and explained for how to tap this other-worldly power. The book examines the concept of the Force as it applies to daily life, but also from the standpoint of its martial origins.

About the Author:

G. J. Carr is a martial arts instructor who holds the rank of fourth degree black belt in “the way of harmonizing with energy” and has studied energy and energy practices for thirty years. His experience includes Judo, Jujitsu, Iaido, Aikido and Karate, as well as arrest and control tactics for law enforcement. Over the years, he became interested in the differences between the casual practitioner and the exceptional few who have an elusive, magical ability. Described as “the substance behind the forms” he sought to discover and teach it, not solely as a martial skill but as a way of living and nurturing the human spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars packed full of good stuff 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I am interested in the Force as it has been written about, and practised, beyond the Star Wars orbit, so I was fascinated to see here much that exists also in different contexts. I think this is a very usful text to have and would buy a printed version as well if it came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starting point 27 Jun 2012
By Haytch
This is a great entry point in understanding and building one's connection with the Force. I am very great full to the author for writing this book. It has presented the Force in a modern context and brought our world as we know it together with the Force and beyond. It has very good starter exercises for the beginner to connect with the force. My only thought is that the author could write more on the subject to help others progress in their use of the Force as there is few direct texts that take this topic to a conclusion that helps the student reach their potential.

Thanks Carr and I hope you right more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal book... lousy title! 18 July 2012
By Mindy Allport Settle - Published on Amazon.com

I came back to this book multiple times before finally purchasing it because, well, the title was just so terrible and the cover was pretty blah. DO NOT JUDGE THIS BOOK BY ITS COVER! As an avid physics geek and Star Wars fan (as well as a professional author), I tend to enjoy reading anything related to Star Wars written by "civilians" (just to separate these authors from LucasArts-approved and sanctioned authors). I've read quite a few stinkers and a few real gems (like my favorite, "the Dharma of Star Wars"). This book is absolutely my new favorite and has concisely linked the study and understanding of the Force with our modern concept of physics (in particular) and science (in general). The author's writing style is strikingly similar to Michio Kaku's and his ability to distill complex concepts into easily readable and relatable descriptions is fascinating. I believe the audience for this book could easily extend beyond the normal subset of Star Wars fans it might typically attract to a far broader group of scientists and theologians. I'd love to have the option to purchase a copy in paperback and will look for future titles from you! Well done!

This book is the best that I have read so far, I can now read other books using this as my base for the Force. I have no doubt that if you have a been guided by the Force to this point and that you are to use the Force this book will not disappoint

Thanks Carr and I hope you write more.

I love this book. Will it ever be in hardback or softback binding? The kindle edition is fine, but I'd like to have it in book format, as well.

The forces acting upon the object are all a part of the one Force. The goal isn’t to overcome anything, but rather to guide, lead, assist and direct the forces that are already in play. Allow, rather than demand obedience. Not force of will, but will of the Force. &quote;
