The Bruce Lee Library stands as a definitive presentation of Bruce Lee's magnificent legacy. I have also read just about every book published on the late Bruce Lee and his own fighting expression of Jeet Kune Do. Like Bruce, I sought out numerous fitness activities which would make be a more efficient martial artist. When I saw this fantastic book (Bruce Lee: the art of expressing the human body compiled by John Little), for a bargain price I had to have it. It is one of the few books I have not read previously on Bruce Lee.

Bruce often talked about how identifying something as right or wrong, or choosing one school of martial arts .

Bruce often talked about how identifying something as right or wrong, or choosing one school of martial arts over another, would limit personal growth. Once we have identified and labeled something then we stop thinking about it and are no longer in inquiry. When you identify strongly with one thing, then you close off your sensitivity.

Jeet Kune Do was a revolutionary new approach to the martial arts in its time and is the principal reason why Bruce Lee is revered as a pioneer by martial artists today, many decades after his death. It is a great way to learn more about Bruce Lee, his combat techniques and his philosophies for success. Even if you are not a serious martial arts student, there are self-defense ideas here that anyone can use. In short, this was an interesting and educational book that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Bruce Lee developed an expression of martial arts that was personal to him called Jeet Kune Do (translated: Way of the Intercepting Fist)

Bruce Lee developed an expression of martial arts that was personal to him called Jeet Kune Do (translated: Way of the Intercepting Fist). The art has as its symbolic representation what we call Bruce Lee’s Core Symbol and uses as its main tenet: Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation. The term jeet kune do was coined and put into use in 1967 by Bruce Lee in an attempt to put a name to his martial expression

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own. The book is is a way of mind, spirit, the flow of all combat because no situation is the same as in the scools. You must not think but flow with whatever comes your way. If you stop and think you are lost& will trip on the natural flow. Truth is the Daughter of inspiration;Intellectual analysis & partalized debatekeeps people away from the truth. You head & body are not separate but we are oneness will the all, that flowswithout thout. Either you know or you don't. Feel the situation; Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. this is the spirituality Master Bruce has given. Arts are a way of life, spirituality. This was a young man that left us and gave so much during a time that todays mind could not understand. As a child I cryed when he past on . I was 8 years old that shows that the old conservatives destroy what is beautiful. I got into the arts at that time and learn from fighting in the streets of the inner city of New York. You must have fought for real at least spar.

This book is really quite interesting. It is very good. But it is almost entirely short quotes from Bruce Lee's notes. The editors have taken these quotes and organized them by topic and then organized those topics into chapters. And they did a very good job with this.

But really, the book reads like a Twitter Feed. You could probably take this book in its entirety, and write it out, quote by quote, to twitter.

What this means is there is no depth. You get Lee's thoughts on a topic, but no concrete examples or additional expository text. Like reading The Book of Five Rings and trying to think about how it applies to your life.

I like that, and enjoy it. But I wanted to write this review so other people would know what to expect. There are other books that explain JKD much better by using Lee's quotes, and then adding additional exposition to further explain what the quote means. This book is more a philosophy book than a martial arts book.

When Bruce Lee was in bed for six months recovering from a broken back induced by incorrect weight training (and not from an attack as shown in the film "Dragon"), he filled seven large notebooks with, among other things, his analysis of martial arts. The original "Tao of Jeet Kune Do" was derived from those notebooks, but much was left out. Now Bruce's wife and daughter and his estate have released all the material, which has been edited from notes (most shown in photocopies) to easily read form.

I've only read about 1/3 of this book so far, and its the most detailed treatise on combat that I've yet encountered. As such it might be more useful for those with extensive martial arts experience, to spot those few things that they hadn't considered or known or had forgotten, than as introductory material for someone new to martial arts, where the totality of the detailed enumerations would probably be overwhelming.

If you are a Bruce Lee fan then this is definitely a must buy.

Finally a book that are Bruce Lee's own words and thoughts on JKD. Nothing filtered here. It is FAR SUPERIOR to the TAO. Although the TAO makes a great complement to this for the more serious student. It's one incredible book and by far one of my favorites I own. I HIGHLY RECOMEND this book to anyone involved in the fighting arts regardless of style. This shows what a true genius and how far ahead of his time he was.

An exceptional annotated window into the soul and mind of the master Bruce Lee. As an artist I appreciate the power of Lee's graphic work to describe his ideas and approaches, his thoughts and his world view. When I gave it to my son as a present (he's a reluctant reader normally), he pored over it and won't lend it back. A very nice color shot on the cover brings out the dragon in the man.
made a great gift.
