This has to be the definitive book on Bruce Lee's martial art. If you own this you do not need "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do". John Little has done a great job of locating, formatting, editing and presenting Bruce Lee's writings in a manner that is easy to read, espcially when compared to "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" which, in comparison, looks to be so many of Bruce's notes just randomly written. This book presents Bruce Lee's writings and sketches on his art of Jeet Kune Do in an organized and comprehensive manner.This book is, quite simply, the best book on Jeet Kune Do ever written. ( )
