5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughts of a legend, 2 Aug 2005
This review is from: Tao of Jeet Kune Do (Paperback)
This book is truly incredible. If you're a martial artist there is something to be gained from this book. It contains a wealth of inspiring quotations from the man himself.
The book is presented in the form of short quotations and jottings taken from Bruce Lee's writings. The main chapters are Philosophy, Preliminaries, Qualities, Tools, Preparations, Mobility, Attack, Circle with no circumference and It's just a name. Each chapter is neatly arranged in an easy to read fashion. There is a variety of sketches by Bruce included in some of the text that makes for interesting analysis.
If you want to understand the essence of Jeet Kune Do you should read this. No one can explain it better than Bruce Lee himself.
The words of Linda Lee (Bruce's wife) capture the nature of this book. 'He did not intend it to be a "how-to" book or a "learn kung-fu in 10 easy lessons" book. He intended it as a record of one man's way of thinking and as a guide, not a set of instructions.
