Yes and no. "Originally" that may have been the intent. But as EU has expanded, that's no longer true.

For example:
"The Jedi Path" is written in character as a collaboration of several Jedi masters, and annotated by Yoda, Thane, Dooku, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Ahsoka, Sidious, and Luke.

The book itself is an instructional primer teaching a Jedi student what it means to be, dress, and act like a Jedi. There's lots of little things it covers. Force and lightsaber techniques, training, how a student is selected for padawan training, knight trials, and Force using/sensitive creatures, other Force traditions, and more I'm likely forgetting.

There is also an entire chapter devoted to the different types of Jedi. As written, the masters writing the text all but come out and say, "Once you're a Knight, you'll choose one of these paths or be chosen for one of these paths." Shadows, Sentinels, Consulars, Guardians, Sages, Seers, etc are all mentioned.

It's a nice light read, and lots of fun. Even as a student Dooku was a bit of a prig, judging by his annotations. Though, Luke comes across pretty arrogant as well.

People, including me, will complain about anything. If BioWare sent us all $100 in thanks for playing TOR, inevitably someone would complain about how the bill was folded or if it was new enough to include the lastest anti-forgery options. That said, I prefer mine folded in half, and with all the neat bells and whistles.
