Description de l'ouvrage

27 novembre 2007
THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THE ABSOLUTE POWER AT THE HEART OF THE STAR WARS GALAXY

The Force, in the immortal words of Obi-Wan Kenobi, “surrounds us, it penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together.” The fortunate few who are able to tap into this extraordinary power have studied and cultivated the full spectrum of its potential–either embracing its virtuous qualities or succumbing to its evil temptations. The Jedi seek to bring peace and enlightenment to the galaxy, while the Sith hunger only for conquest and control.

This comprehensive one-of-a-kind overview chronicles the known history of the Force and its wielders down through the ages, from the founding tenets of Jedi and Sith teachings to the landmark events and legendary figures who have shaped the struggle between the light and dark sides. In first-hand accounts by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo, Darth Bane, Darth Vader, Count Dooku, Emperor Palpatine, and a host of other Jedi Masters, Sith Lords, scholars, and sages, Star Wars: Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force spans the breadth of available knowledge, including

• the first recorded discovery of the Force
• significant battles affected by the Force throughout galactic history
• the purpose, construction, and importance of Holocrons
• the evolution of the Jedi and Sith orders
• Force-sensitive abilities–including battle meditation, telekinesis, and “mind tricks”
• noteworthy Jedi and Sith lightsabers, and the seven forms of lightsaber combat
• a vivid portrait of the Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker
PLUS–More than one hundred brand new full-color illustrations!

No Star Wars library is complete without this definitive guide to understanding the Force. Remember: the Force will be with you . . . always!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Que la Force soit avec toi, jeune geek 1 juillet 2010
Par Entropist
Format:Broché
Oui, une sous catégorie des fans de SF, le geek est une espèce rare, mais à qui ce livre est destiné.
Clairement j'ai hésité avant d'acheter ce livre. Suis-je fan de Star Wars au point d'acheter un bouquin d'histoire des Jedi? Ben il faut croire que oui.
Bon, maintenant que je l'ai, qu'en dire?
Il faut être fan de Star Wars pour l'apprécier. Attention, il ne s'agit pas d'avoir bien aimé les films. Non, il faut adorer l'univers fictif de Star Wars dans son intégralité, et ça inclut les livres, les BD, les jeux... donc, il faut être un geek. Quelqu'un qui ne verrait que les films comme composant de l'univers Star Wars ne comprendrait pas à quoi ce livre fait référence pour les deux-tiers. Il explore l'histoire de la force à peu près depuis 10000 avant l'Episode I jusqu'à 40 ans après l'Episode VI. En fait, seul le dernier chapitre consacré à Anakin Skywalker, concerne uniquement les films. Le reste touche un univers plus vaste.
Donc, fan occasionnel, passe ton chemin, ce livre est trop "geek" pour toi.
Par contre, toi qui a fini les jeux KOTOR I et II douze fois, Toi, qui a lu les trilogies de timothy Zahn et Kevin J. Anderson et qui considère que Star Wars n'est pas complet sans elles, toi qui attend the Force Unleashed II en trépignant, alors ce livre est pour toi.
Attention, il ne faut pas forcément avoir un Dark vador à taille réelle dans sa chambre pour apprécier le livre. Il faut juste se rendre compte que ce livre est un livre de référence, écrit comme un livre d'Histoire avec un grand H. Ce n'est pas un roman.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The illustrations alone are worth it! 5 décembre 2007
Par Adrian Ion - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The "Essential Guide" series to the Star Wars universe has (perhaps surprisingly) never had a book devoted entirely to the "Force". And this one does not disappoint! The attempt at an "in-universe" historical style (supposedly, the "author" is a Jedi in the New Jedi Order) makes it immersive and fun to read. The information deals with a wide variety of Force-related subjects that any Star Wars fan would be interested in: from the origins and history of the Jedi and Sith orders to the construction of lightsabers and Jedi martial arts. The only thing that I personally felt to be missing is a more "scientific" or "physical" explanation of the Force and its workings (like in-universe scientific theories on how the Force is produced and how it interacts with regular matter and energy), but that might have conflicted with the "historian's perspective" that it adopts instead.
Despite any shortcomings in the text itself, however, the illustrations alone make it worth the complete 5 stars! They are simply breathtaking... and the amount of time and sweat put into them by the artists must have been staggering. It's strange to say it, but it feels more like an art book than a dry listing of Star Wars lore! Any Star Wars fan would love these wonderful works of art!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Purchase ;P 7 janvier 2008
Par Greg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This book is necessary for all fans. It's like.. the Star Wars Bible!
It's a canon in-universe source as well!
------

Wookieepedia Page - [...]

So Basically This is a Historical (in-universe) Text. It is written by Tionne Solusar in the year 40 A.B.Y; for those who do not know she is a Jedi Historian. Her subject is to explain the conflict between the Jedi and the Sith from it's beginnings to as far as she can tell (40aby, but another takes over in the end to tell the Legacy comics stuff which is RAD). She is a Historian first and a Jedi second she says basically and she takes a neutral stance on the facts.

There are also, First-Hand Accounts from characters. Like just straight-up transcripts of Holocrons. There's things like Mace Windu explaining Vaapad, Luke Skywalker expressing his views on the Dark Side and the mistakes he made during his training (Episode V), Dooku giving an account of pretty much everything he did becoming a Sith and his views on the force. [some of these have completely changed the way I view parts of the movies]

Part 1 is an incredible timeline, and the basic history of everything from the 100yrs Darkness, the Great Hyperspace War etc up to Luke Skywalker's Duel with Lumiya.

Part 2 is about the Jedi. You get things like Cin Drallig's actual classes (from a recording), Descriptions of Force-Abilities, all the different lightside views on the force, Lightsaber Combat etc.

That's all I'll go into for more info check out the Wookieepedia Page

The best part is the Index in the back. If you aren't convinced you need this book. Go to Borders or whatever read the Intro by Tionne Solusar and lookup some favorite characters in the index to see how many pages they are on cause they really crammed almost everything into this.

Oh and the art is just.... Incredible. When I got mine I spent 2 hours just looking at the pictures alone.. It's amazing

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not What I expected but Still Loved It 16 février 2008
Par Andromeda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Like most of the people who bought this book I thought it was as it said a guide to the Force. Really its a guide to the Force users the Sith, the Jedi, the Dark Side, the Light Side, the abilities, holograms and the Chosen One. Yet it so good that I can't be disappointed that it wasn't what I thought. I enjoyed reading the Jedi and Sith "holograms" as they left their own views on events and things. Naturally the Sith are more amusing since they won't devolge too much infomation until you prove yourself and bring them a dead body which they really encourage...and Palpatine's views on things. I couldn't help but think of thinking of Obi Wan's saying of different points of view which you defiently see in the Jedi and Sith's different interpetations of things. I liked learning of the different techniques, abilities and the Forms of the Jedi. Luke's recording on his own journey on the dark side. I also enjoyed Leia's recordings on learning about her father, mother and their marriage. I also liked the story Pooja (Padme's niece) of her two meetings of Anakin. Althought I'm still hoping for a complete book on Luke and Leia learning of their mother, Anakin and Padme's relationship and their Naboo relatives this was a nice and unexpected surprise. The pictures were beautifully done.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Where's the Force? 12 février 2008
Par Murl J. Sprout Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
First, the book is beautiful and I love it. I certainly don't regret buying it.

Second, I am disappointed in it. I, too, was hoping for more philosophical meat.

The art is amazing - I have to constantly resist the temptation to cut out pages and frame them! I'm glad I never bought the Essential Chronology because this is enough of a chronology plus oodles of other historical details. I think it's superior to the Essential Chronology.

What this book lacks (and I know I'm not alone in thinking these are what people expected the book to contain):

This book lacks descriptions of The Force. Surprising, huh?

The book IS a great history of the Jedi and Sith. It also goes in depth into different Force powers (which, honestly, I could have done without)and construction of light sabers and schools of light saber fighting styles. So, if, when reading the novels you just can't get enough of Mace Windu discussing Vapaad, well, you'll like this book. But, again, this book is a history of people, events, and techniques.

This book IS NOT about the Force.

I thought I was just being picky when I couldn't find anything to explain the difference between the Living Force and the Unifying Force. But then another review pointed out something even more conspicuous by its abscence and I couldn't believe I didn't notice it - NO discussion of light versus dark! There are countless lists and entries about people who are on the light or dark side but very little discussion of what that means or what their motives are. Although, you do get entries "written" by Luke Skywalker and Count Dooku about their experiences with the dark side.

And THAT is, for me, the selling point of the book. It is written from a Jedi historian's point of view as if someone collected all this knowledge from all the canon and expanded universe material for the Jedi library. Me, personally, I hunger for more stuff about Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon and I get some - but not a lot - of that.

Many of the entries are written by certain Jedi, like Obi-Wan, which is insanely cool ... and then commented on and addended by some Jedi named Tionne Solusar. So you get it from the perspective of characters you know and love with some third-party hindsight knowledge sprinkled on top.

What I found most useful: A piece written by Obi-Wan, Tionne, and Yoda FINALLY sorting out and clearly explaining the Sifo-Dyas/Darth Tyrannus/Kaminoans situation. I have been searching the interweb for, like, 2-3 years trying to figure that crap out. Speaking of Dooku, there's a LOT on him in here - way deeper stuff than you may have read in Legacy of the Jedi by Jude Watson (good book, BTW) - including his "resignation letter" if you want to call it that.

Final verdict: Buy it, but hopefully, I've saved you from being disappointed or unpleasantly surprised.

[...]

"The overriding philosophy in Episode I - and in all the Star Wars movies, for that matter - is the balance between good and evil. The Force itself breaks into two sides: the living Force and a greater, cosmic Force. The living Force makes you sensitive to other living things, makes you intuitive, and allows you to read other people's minds, et cetera. But the greater Force has to do with destiny. In working with the Force, you can find your destiny and you can choose to either follow it, or not." - George Lucas

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Like viewing a Jedi holocron 28 novembre 2007
Par B. David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've been looking for a SW book like this for awhile, and glad it arrived. Grabbed this book last night, and wasn't able to put it down. It gives great historical background on important events in Jedi and Sith histories to the more current LOTF storyline. Illustrations were great, and commentary interspersed throughout was good.
