Book Description

28 Sep 2010
The Jedi Path, Fully Illustrated, with Removable Features and a Mechanical Vault

With the push of a button, the doors of the vault open in a wash of light and Star Wars sound effects. The inner platform rises, revealing this exclusive edition of The Jedi Path.

This ancient training manual, crafted by early Jedi Masters, has educated and enlightened generations of Jedi. It explains the history and hierarchy of the Jedi Order, and what Jedi must know to take their place as defenders of the peace in the galaxy—from mastery of the Force to the nuances of lightsaber combat.

Passed down from Master to Padawan, the pages of this venerable text have been annotated by those who have held it, studied it, and lived its secrets. From Yoda and Luke Skywalker to Count Dooku and Darth Sidious, they have shaped the content of the book by leaving mementos tucked within the pages, tearing out pages, and adding their personal experiences as tangible reminders of the lessons they’ve learned.

Through wars and rebellion, only a single copy of this manual has survived. It is now passed on to you.

The ancient Masters who wrote the text: Fae Coven, Grand Master and head of the Jedi Council; Crix Sunburris, Jedi Ace starfighter pilot; Restelly Quist, Jedi Chief Librarian; Skarch Vaunk, Jedi Battlemaster and lightsaber expert; Bowspritz, Jedi Biologist and expert on the Living Force; Sabla-Mandibu, Jedi Seer and Holocron expert; Morrit Ch’gally, Jedi Recruiter; Gal-Stod Slagistrough, Jedi leader of the Agricultural Corps.

Jedi who added personal commentary: Yoda, Thame Cerulian, Count Dooku, Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Darth Sidious, and Luke Skywalker.

Removable features: A letter tracing the book’s history, a severed Padawan braid, a metal Jedi Credit medallion, a Jedi starfighter patch, a burned poster of the Jedi Code, a map of the Jedi Temple, a lightsaber diagram sketched on the back of a napkin from Dex’s Diner, and a note on the missing pages torn from the book by a Sith.

Created in collaboration with Lucasfilm—along with an acclaimed Star Wars author and revered Star Wars illustrators—this volume provides new insights into the history and lore of the Jedi Order while introducing never-before-seen ships, creatures, characters, and details about how one trains to become a Jedi.

The Jedi Path is for adults, and is intended for ages 14 and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Follow the Jedi Path and feel the living Force 11 Nov 2010
The Jedi Path is a very original piece of reference text to the Star Wars Universe, the Jedi and the Force. Next to the known content, it also contains original inputs into the Jedi ways and the Force. It's information is very interesting for all fans of the saga.
As a supplement, it comes together with original artworks, and lose pieces of goodies, that are hidden inside the book. You can find pins, napkis, a Padawan braid, and lots more as you walk through the book.
The original case that holds the book is a funny extra to the whole sense. If you are still connected to the kid inside, you cheer up every time you push the button that reveils the book from its chest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The force be with you 29 Sep 2010
I ordered this mainly for a collectors item, which in no doubt it will be. From the clever opening of the case to the fantasticly designed leather cover this book will be an sought after item by any true jedi in training. whilst the book covers areas that are located in numerous other star wars encyclopedias and other books, its the presentation and decor of this book that will impress mainly as well as the literature inside. this book is written as a training manual that has been handed down through the ages and with the comments of well known jedi written in as footnotes, and the pages looking ancient gives this item a great charecter. so if youre a true star wars fan that wants a book that is not just great to read but fun to open(i could press that button all day and it still gives me goosebumps) then this is the book for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice piece of fun for the Star Wars Fan 26 Sep 2011
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fans of the Star Wars Universe have long wanted a manual for the teachings of the Force which is now presented by Daniel Wallace in this wonderfully creative title from Titan. Add to this various fighting styles of the lightsabre, an instruction manual on creating one as well as the teachings of the spiritual side and it's a book that will make a great present for that fan in your life who may well have everything else already.

Finally add to this the wonderful touch of hand written notes from characters who owned this particular copy and it's a book that will give you an experience to remember, even if the fan goes in the back yard to practice his various forms yelling vwoom as the manoeuvre their prototype.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute little book 28 Nov 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a cute little book that any fan, young or old would appreciate. The content spans all areas of force apprenticeship and mastery (with varying levels of depth) - though don't expect a temple archives kind of thing. There are nice notes from characters from multiple iterations of the series. OK maybe a drawback here since I doubt akosha, anakin, darth sidious and luke all shared the version of the book. For me it would have been much better to have 8 versions, with more in depth commentary on each, rather than this best of collection, that would have given you more in depth view of a character's opinions, and also make for better comparing or sections.

As for the book itself, is great, hard-cover, and well bound, the paper has this parchment feel to it and the greatest thing for me, the outside edges on the long side are jaded, like it's been hand-bound by a student of the force from different pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every Jedi 1 Nov 2010
Excellent book, it comes with all the extras as advertised and the paper and it even has some ripped pages by the emperor to simulate a used book.

The box makes the sound exactly as in the video which is surprisingly and awesome.

Definetely a must for every Jedi and Star wars collector.

I've seen many people discussing this online, asking if you'd still get the removable items without buying the Vault Edition. No, you don't. HOWEVER! the book itself is still a fantastic piece of fictional reference material. For those who couldnt afford the Vault Edition, definitely consider this one, at such a reasonable price you will not be disappointed. It's jam packed with information, with plenty of new bits created just for this book (and all considered part of the Star Wars canon).

The one think which lets this version down for me is the cover is slightly different to the vault edition, the material is a dull grey instead of the metallic blue of the original, and it's not quite as nice to hold (the original being slightly padded). I guess the main reason for them doing this was to distinguish between the two, so people couldn't interchange them. Anyway, that being said, it's hardly a problem, just me being picky.

It's the sort of book I want to carry with me everywhere (if not for the ridicule haha)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Jedi Path 28 Sep 2011
This book is a world of information on the Jedi philosophy and path. Its canonically sound and even adds a little more depth to said canon. I think many fans have been waiting for such a book. Would also like to see a Sith version too.

My only issue, and its not a big one, is that i would love to have seen some sort of acctual instuction on Jedi meditation and such. Yes, i know its only fiction, but it would have great immersion if that sort of thing were present. And come on, how many Jedi fans out there haven't at least once wanted to immerse themselves in the lore like that.

Other than that this book is well worth it for an Star Wars fan.
