The Dharma of Star Wars

A new book for you Star Wars fans. I haven't read it, but it sounds interesting.
Bortolin, an ordained member of Thich Nhat Hanh's Buddhist community, may be the ideal person to write about the Buddhist themes in Star Wars: he camped out for tickets to all of the movies—even the less than stellar ones—and possesses his very own set of Jedi robes. In short, consistent chapters, Bortolin explores themes such as suffering, mindfulness, karma and transcending the dark side
Along the same lines is Jedi-Shinshu: The Buddhist Heart of Star Wars
