Overview

Bruce Lee has been recognized primarily for his physical skills and tactical principles in the art of unarmed combat. But Bruce Lee: Artist of Life reveals that Lee was a man who was equal parts poet, Philosophysopher, scientist, actor. producer, director, author, choreographer, Martial Artsl artist, husband, father, and friend, dedicated to artistic expression with the goal of self-knowledge. Bruce Lee: Artist of Life is a collection of writings comprising eight parts: writings on Chinese Gung Fu, Philosophysophy psychology, Jeet Kune Do, acting, and self-knowledge, as well as a section of Lee's poetry and letters, revealing a side of Bruce Lee rarely seen letters, revealing a side of Bruce Lee rarely seen previously. As John Little writes in the Introduction, "No matter what the topic...you get the distinct impression from reading Lee's words that hee, indeed, was a 'real man,' a real human being, who was in fact laying bare his soul."

    There is way more to Bruce Lee than Martial arts.

    THE BEST BRUCE LEE BOOK EVER!

    This is the best Bruce Lee book I have ever seen! I am amazed that there was still so much new material to be released after so many years! I had never seen his essays on Jeet Kune Do that have appeared in this volume before, nor his writings on psychology, poetry and philosophy. The book truly reveals why Bruce Lee was so much more than just a fighter. This is a book about life and how to live it -- the 'martial way!' If you are new to Bruce Lee or simply want to have a handy reference guide to his essential writings, this is the book for you!
