In this fun, erudite, and often moving book, Cass R. Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood, fathers, the Dark Side, rebellion, and redemption. As it turns out, Star Wars also has a lot to teach us about constitutional law, economics, and political uprisings. In rich detail, he tells the story of the films' wildly unanticipated success and its lessons on why some things succeed while others fail. Ultimately, Star Wars is about the freedom of choice and our never-ending ability to make the right decision when the chips are down. Written with buoyant prose and considerable heart, this book shines new light on the most beloved story of our time.

"Narrator Kaleo Griffith takes a conversational approach to this unusual book by a legal scholar and former Obama administration official. The author analyzes various themes of the Star Wars oeuvres, particularly father-son relationships and other familial patterns. Due to Griffith's friendly manner, one imagines Sunstein sitting across the table in a quiet cafŽ, chatting about what is clearly a favorite of his among today's great cultural phenomena. There is some deep thinking here, and not for fans only. Still, a snippet of the iconic music would have provided additional delight. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
