Tao of Jeet Kune Do
by Bruce Lee
Paperback from Ohara Publications, Inc.
ISBN: 0897500482

Compiled from Bruce Lee's notes and essays and originally published in 1975, "Tao of Jeet Kune Do" is the best-selling martial arts book in the world. This iconic work explains the science and philosophy behind jeet kune do - the art Lee invented - and includes hundreds of Lee's illustrations. Topics include Zen and enlightenment, kicking, striking, grappling, and footwork. With introductions by Linda Lee and editor Gilbert Johnson, "Tao of Jeet Kune Do" is essential reading for any practitioner and offers a brief glimpse into the mind of one of the world's greatest martial artists.

To watch Bruce Lee on film is an amazing experience. Those who have read Tao of Jeet Kune Do, however, know that Lee's prose can also be exhilarating. This praiseworthy and enduring bestseller (mainly written over six months when Lee was bedridden with back problems) compiles philisophical aphorisms, explanations on technique, and sketches by the master himself.

The Warrior Within is the most comprehensive volume of these teachings, meant to help you apply Lee's philosophies to your own life. This unique guide reveals such life-affirming secrets as: 
  • Seeing the totality of life and putting things into perspective
  • Understanding the concept of Yin and Yang
  • Defeating adversity by adapting to circumstances
  • Tapping into inner spiritual forces to help shape the future
With a foreword by Linda Lee Cadwell and photographs and other memorabilia from Bruce Lee's short but celebrated life, The Warrior Within is an engrossing and easy-to-understand guide to the little-explored world of Bruce Lee. John Little has been identified as "one of the foremost authorities on Bruce Lee in the world" by Black Belt magazine.
