Twenty years have passed since Darth Bane, reigning Dark Lord of the Sith, demolished the ancient order devoted to the dark side and reinvented it as a circle of two: one Master to wield the power and pass on the wisdom, and one apprentice to learn, challenge, and ultimately usurp the Dark Lord in a duel to the death. But Bane’s acolyte, Zannah, has yet to engage her Master in mortal combat and prove herself a worthy successor. Determined that the Sith dream of galactic domination will not die with him, Bane vows to learn the secret of a forgotten Dark Lord that will assure the Sith’s immortality - and his own.

Technical knowledge alone isn't enough - increase your software development income by leveling up your soft skills Early in his software developer career, John Sonmez discovered that technical knowledge alone isn't enough to break through to the next income level - developers need "soft skills" like the ability to learn new technologies just in time, communicate clearly with management and consulting clients, negotiate a fair hourly rate, and unite teammates and coworkers in working toward a common goal.

In the New York Times best-seller Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, Drew Karpyshyn painted a gripping portrait of a young man’s journey from innocence to evil. That man was Darth Bane, a twisted genius whose iron will, fierce ambition, and strength in the dark side of the Force made him a natural leader among the Sith - until his radical embrace of an all-but-forgotten wisdom drove him to destroy his own order...and create it anew from the ashes.

Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy. Until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy - and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

'I have sensed a disturbance in the Force.' Ominous words under any circumstances, but all the more so when uttered by Emperor Palpatine. On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root - its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn.

I feel that the focus on two different timelines was a bit too complicated to follow for a casual listener, I barely remember the important parts of the book as I found myself tuning oyt so often from parts that just felt completely irrelevant to the story.

Maybe if it were split into two different books then yes, but otherwise it was a bit of a disapointment compared to the first of the Thrawn series. The first was brilliant, I really enjoyed it, but this, a little bit of a let down.

This book really gives you every excuse to get out of bed in the morning and better yourself. Its exactly the kind of inspirational content that helps you better yourself and to top it all off, this is an amazing and sometimes heart aching story.

David Goggins, I salute you and thank you. Because of your story I have learned lessons in a few hours that would have taken me years and more importantly, how to learn more, the mindset required to get the job done.

Thank you, I highly recommend to anyone looking to better thenselves the entertainment value is also very good.

Peterson really did what he set out to do in this book, from what I can tell. A lot of the things he talks about are as he says, subjects and advice most of us have learned throughout our lives except refreshed and clearly put in his own words. I feel so much more prepared for the trials ahead of me and definitely plan on using some of his techniques in the future.
