Anyone read the book "Dharma of Star wars" by Matthew Bortolin? I liked it, and would recommend it. It's very Buddhist.. (doh!) If anybody else has read it, what do you think? Is it a good book for learners? It's humorous, but still serious. It neglected the defence part of the Jedi path, to a certain degree. It steps only lightly on the complex issue of defense VS valuing all life + do no harm, and the author refrains from saying too much about it, but some of the other aspects he handles well. The author explains some complex ideas in an easy to understand manner. I felt it was a good book for Jedi learners, at least as an alternative way to view the force, as well as inspiration for thought and reflection. I really want to write an essay about it, lol, that's how much I liked this one.

In any case, I would love opinions from others who have read it, and this fit best in the Buddhist section of this forum, I thought.

I'm currently hunting out a new book to read, too - I'll see if my library has this one.

Good bump! I completely forgot about it as was always planned in my to-read list. Everyone I know, praises it.

Oh my, I had forgotten about this one too, because I lost my copy of the book a while back. It's fantastic though, really recommended!
