    read it

    To readers familiar with taoism and zen buddhism, most of Mr. Lee's writings will seem familiar. What keeps me returning to this book is the simplicity, honesty, clarity and straight-forwardness of his writings. These are writings of a person who LIVED his life each moment, not a monk spendning his whole life in a monastery or mountain cave...hiding from the world. This book can help you deal with yourself, your anxieties and other issues, by making you analyse yourself...reading a book like this is pointless unless you analyse and examine yourself to the background of these writings.

    A wonderful book in offering solutions for daily questions

    Searching for certain truths regarding daily living is the ultimate human inquiry. How does one reach happiness and serenity? In this book the master of Kung Fu, the one and only Mr. Bruce Lee, shows us another side of himself not known by most, the educated side that studied and obtained a BS in philosophy. This inspirational man not only sought out to become master of his own physical being but also his mental, spiritual, and emotional. Fulfilling the human body and spirit in all ways we desire to achieve life's understandings. Mr. Lee's contemplation upon life's challenges is shown here in this book, and what I like about his methodology is that it offers simple suggestions. Not answers. If you were to seek out a solution for a single question in your life, you would eventually derive a similar answer to Bruce's. Save yourself the time and grief, consult The Master himself in this amazing book.

    Bruce Lee's guide for a better life!

    This book guides you though everyday living, and shows the way for a much happier life. Bruce Lee's Striking Thoughts tells you the importance of being yourself, being healthy, loving others all the way to spirtualality. I reccomend this book to anyone. Each sentance in this book is truly inspiring. Every paragraph in this book will improve a person's confidence, respect, spirit, and life. This book truly lives up to it's name.

    excellent book

    This book was very helpful and makes very good points. But I just wanted to say that some other people commenting said that this shows you the way to a better happy life. Like Bruce Lee says there is no secret way. Explore and find yourself for the 'ultimate truth'.

    OUTSTANDING!

    I have always thought of Bruce Lee as being a fighter par excellence first and foremost. After reading 'Striking Thoughts' I now believe that he was one of the finest philosophers of the twentieth century. And not philosophy in the typical sense of being an abstractionist or theorist, but a philosopher in the best sense; a person who has vital information that is helpful to one's life immediately. This is without doubt the finest book of practical wisdom I've ever had the pleasure to come across. From determining the ways of love, to working for a living to more profound (or 'striking') thoughts concerning life, death and spirituality. This, rather than his films, is Bruce Lee 'at his best.'
