5.0 out of 5 stars A BOOK THAT CHANGES LIVES!
I agree with another reader who called this book "The best philosophy book ever written!" I read this book and it changed my life. I had problems believing in myself, a poor understanding of those around me and of my place in the world. I've read other "self-help" books and even a few philosophy books, but most of them seem to deal with life as an...

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy introduction to Bruce Lee
Fans of Bruce Lee will love this book,let's face it the man has a large and very loyal fan base very much like the Elvis of martial arts and Kung Fu films.As I understand it the man held a degree in philosophy,so it's little wonder that he borrowed,(or as one other reviewer puts it plagiarizes) ideas. It's fair to say that this is not a particularly academic piece of...

1.0 out of 5 stars Philosophical garbage, 12 Feb 2000
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Warrior Within: The Philosophies of Bruce Lee (Paperback)
I hold a doctorate in philosophy and must warn people from buying this book. It is written by the ignorant for the ignorant and fails to include the essence of pure philosophical method. Bruce Lee was not a philosopher and this book cannot convince me that he was. If you really must interest yourself in Chinese philosophy, read "The Spell of the Sensuous" for a more well balanced and ecologically aware text. Otherwise you will be brought down by the underlying violence which pervades this repugnant text. I am very sorry that I bought it.

1.0 out of 5 stars pathological and sad, 29 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Warrior Within: The Philosophies of Bruce Lee (Paperback)
Much of the content of this book is plagiarized and recycled from the work of Jidu Krishnamurti and others. That's not, however, what I find most troubling about it. The saddest and most disturbing thing about this book is that, intrinsic to every line, is an entirely unhealthy promotion of sociopathic violence among living, breathing human beings. I can't imagine a sadder sort of propaganda than that which is perpetrated in this book and other Bruce Lee-related titles.
