Just Hatched is a feature where I share my first impressions of a book after the first chapter. Check out the announcement post for more information.
Star Wars Psychology is a book outside of my normal reading selections, but once in a while I like to try something different ;-). I of course grew up a Star Wars fan given how nerdy my parents are and am loving the new wave of Star Wars fandom. I also really enjoy pop science non-fiction from time to time, so I thought this one could be fun. It didn’t quite work for me, but fans who want to also learn a bit about psychology will probably enjoy it!
Note: I received an advanced copy of Star Wars Psychology from the publisher. Some things may have changed in the final version.

This essay collection offers a fascinating psychological analysis of the compelling and complex universe of George Lucas's richly rendered Star Wars series. A group of expert contributors examines such topics as family ties, Jedi qualities, masculinity, girl power, and the values embodied in both the "dark" and "light" sides of this psychologically spellbinding world.
