Publisher's Summary

It is written by Ryder Windham and was released on November 27, 2007. It was the first Essential Guide to contain original material (as opposed to a revised and updated version of a previous book) since the original Alien Species guide in 2001. As with both Alien Species guides, The New Essential Chronology and the Galactic Phrase Book & Travel Guide, this book "exists" also as an in-universe publication, written by Tionne Solusar. 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.

This comprehensive one-of-a-kind overview chronicles the known history of the Force and its wielders down through the ages, from the founding tenents of Jedi and Sith teachings to the landmark events and legendary figures that have shaped the struggle between the light and dark sides.
