There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no death, there is the Force.

In this book we travel to the far reaches of the past and learn of the beginnings of two opposing groups of people; the Jedi and the Sith. How they began and why, the key people who made it all happen, their core values and beliefs, these are all things that you will learn should you choose to read this book. It is not an easy or a quick read however. It is laid out almost like a textbook, with a plethora of knowledge and peppered with gorgeous illustrations. Everything you could ever possibly want to know about the Jedi (and Sith) is documented here in this book in great detail. I’ve read in other books about lightsabers and the various forms and styles, and marks of contact, but this book really highlights all this information and much more in so much descriptive detail that you can’t help but be impressed. Yet despite the informative nature of this book, it never once was boring or failed to hold my attention utterly. It really is a perfect blend of knowledge and fun.

I highly recommend this to any fan of Star Wars who wants to increase their understanding of the world in which the story takes place.
