Delving into the mind of a geek isn’t always cute fuzzy Ewoks and intergalactic ice cream cones. Probing the minds of Star Wars geeks and the characters they adore is no walk through the Alderaan park either. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what Psychology Ph.D. Dr. Travis Langley attempts to accomplish with his latest book, Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind.

“Ok, I take it back, maybe psychotic wasn’t the best choice of adjectives…”


In addition to having a creatively fitting title all fans (especially the musically cultured) can appreciate, Dr. Langley’s latest offering is a compilation of contributions from various psychology experts providing their insights on the internal complexities of the players within the Star Wars Universe.  The book also provides analysis into what makes the franchise such a popular “Force” for millions of people around the globe.

After having interviewed Dr. Langley about his other recent release, The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead (which I also just finished reading), I was eager to chat with the Superherologist once more to pick his mind on the Star Wars themed psychology book and his own love of Star Wars. Oh, and supposedly some film was just recently released that apparently ties into this paperback quite well.
