I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I agreed to take a look at this book based solely on the name. So I obviously liked the title. The cover could use some help though.It is just letters on a Hyperspace background.
While not quite what I was expecting it was still interesting. So what was I expecting? Hmm well I figured by the end of the book I would be able to pull my Light saber out of the Ice while hanging upside-down in a cave obviously.
I am sad to say I would still be Wampa Chow™ in the unlikely but still possible event of my capture by a giant ice monster.
But I still need to remember that a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice Bob.
“I am not the skull you are looking for…”
Even with you wearing the Vader helmet It still doesn’t work Bob. Sorry.
OK where was I? Oh yeah this book has some pretty cool ideas at its core, but it soon got a bit to new age-y for me I kept saying to myself “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” Yes i sometimes refer to myself as kid. But not when I am actually talking to people, only when I am talking to myself. Its not like I am crazy or anything…. Geez.
“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”
Ok Bob I get it The Force is strong with you. A powerful Sith you will become. Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth… BOB. The most feared skull in the universe.
The other thing I didn’t really like was the statistical info dumps. While yes they were of interesting facts too much time was spent explaining what they were all about.
“Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.”
Thanks Bob but never tell me the odds I don’t like a lot of statistics either.
It was basically a Star Wars themed course on positive thinking and how that can effect everything around you. I agree with that part of it, although I feel I didn’t need the advice.
If you are the type to read self help books I think this one could be a good choice. I like what it is trying to show I am just not in need of it. The thing that really gets to me though is that however hard I think about something I need, I will never be able to make it come to me. And that is just depressing when you stop to think about it. I give Use The Force: A Jedi’s Guide to the Law of Attraction by Joshua P Warren 3.25 stars for me but you can check it out yourself for free with Kindle Unlimited at this link.Kindle Edition
“I’ve been waiting for you, Hobi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master.”
OH give it a rest BOB!
“The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.
For god’s sake Bob shut up!
“Good, I can feel your anger. I am defenseless. Take your weapon. Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!”
I give up Bob you win…….
“Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design.”
I think I need to go now and cry because I still can’t force push things, like skulls, away from me with a thought..
