Tao of Star Wars
M. Porter, M.D.
Tao of Star Wars takes an extremely unique look at explaining
Taoism, a classic Asian religion. It takes the basic tenets of Taoism
and uses classic Star Wars examples to explain them. In the beginning
of the book, the tenets are briefly explained while the latter part
of the book includes more detailed explanations of the tenets with
examples that were chosen do a very good job of showing exactly
what Dr. Porter is trying to explain with each tenet. The examples
range throughout all of the Star Wars movies and it would be extremely
helpful for readers to have had watched the Star Wars series to
understand the examples that Dr. Porter uses in this book. The writing
is easy to follow throughout the book and it takes the reader a
short time to read and understand the tenets and Taoism in general.
The Tao of Star Wars is
an interesting book that takes a good look into the tenets of Taoism
while mixing it with a well-known movie series.
