Amazon has the eBook edition of Star Wars The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force for $1.99. No Google Play or Nook match on this one



https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYPQBT0


Few books tied to iconic movie series are as playful or as well-thought-out as The Jedi Path. From the conceit that the book consists of a series of documents discovered "near the ruins of Byss" to the inclusion of coins, badges, and other artifacts, the contributors have managed to create a tactile and delightful addition to the Star Wars canon. Introductory sections set out the Jedi Code and history of the Jedi Order, while later sections discuss such subjects as the three pillars, becoming an apprentice, and advanced lightsaber techniques. Not only is the text copiously illustrated, but some pages are mischievously ripped out (the Prophecy of the Chosen One) and supposedly handwritten annotations by Obi-Wan Kenobi and others add to the experience. Particularly enjoyable is a galactic bestiary featuring such creatures as a Jodakan needler crab, Mygeetan whiteworm, and the furry but cranky-looking o'cerry. For those who prefer history, an explanation of "The Second Great Schism and the Final War" provides further illumination on the role of the Sith in the Star Wars mythos. The creators of The Jedi Path clearly love Star Wars, and just as clearly wanted to pass that love on to readers. Highly recommended as a gift book for all Jedi enthusiasts, from rank beginners to grand masters. --Jeff VanderMeer

It's not a story this book would tell you. It's a Sith legend. That would be more a question for this book:

Does it include the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "The Wise"?

Good reviews. I snagged it up.

example review:

"Before the dark times, before the reboots, this was the true nature of the Jedi and their legacy. This depth of storytelling and world building is sorely missed in the new Star Wars era and I hope they can bring it back into the fold. Phenomenal book, very interesting, fun, and a must read for any star wars mega fan!"

Looks like a good read. Pity the price is still a tad up there unlike OP's deal but it is in hardback which is much better format imo.

My favorite part is the mention of Mortis on the blurred out pages.

No, but it includes "Around the plot hole in 80 ways" 😂

Great timing. Lot more time to study the force now than I did before all this. My employer is going to be so impressed when I return to the office.

Thx OP! Downloaded the preview and it seems good enough to buy it at 2 bucks. Will probably be a good read during the covid quarantine.

Is there a test I can take after reading this so I can get a "Certified Jedi" status? In case something happens to my job during these uncertain times, I think this would look great on my resume and Linked-In profile.
