It is called 'Striking Thoughts' and belive me that is exactly what it. there are precisely 832 quotes, lifted from the many thousands in the Bruce Lee estate. They are split into eight main parts; Part 1: On First Principles, Part 2: On Being Human, Part 3: On Matters Of Existence, Part 4: On Achievement, Part 5: On Art & Artists, Part 6: On Personal Liberation, Part 7: The Process Of Becoming, Part 8: On Ultimate (Final) Principles. As you can see, they cover almost every aspect of life including racism, time, existance, motivation, the mind, love, health, goals, sucess, and hundreds more.
John Little, the editor of this book and all the other books in the 'Bruce Lee Library' has made a supurb job of this one as he has all the others, setting it all out in a simply way meanig that it can be used a quick reference book to Bruce Lee's 'words of wisdom'.
I have always had a deep passion for life and after reading this book, i was even more ready to tackle life and its problems head on. I just feel so much happier nad cheery that me friends can't believe it.
Overall a great book which will give you a great insight into the philosophical side to martial arts, or if you don't do martial arts, then just as a great guide to leading a better life. As the saying goes 'make the most of living, for your a long time dead'.
If you love life, buy this book and you'll love it even more!
