Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do : Bruce Lee's Commentaries on the Martial Way Paperback
by Bruce Lee, John Little
Compiled from Bruce Lee's own notes and writings, Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do is the seminal book presenting the martial art created by Bruce Lee himself.
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.
The development of his unique martial art form-its principles, core techniques, and lesson plans-are all presented in this book in Bruce Lee's own words and notes.
This is the complete and official version of Jeet Kune Do which was originally published by Tuttle Publishing in cooperation with the Lee family in 1997.
It is still the most comprehensive presentation of Jeet Kune Do available.This Jeet Kune Do book features Lee's illustrative sketches and his remarkable notes and commentaries on the nature of combat and achieving success in life through the martial arts, as well as the importance of a positive mental attitude during training.
In addition, there are a series of "Questions Every Martial Artist Must Ask Himself" that Lee posed to himself and intended to explore as part of his own development, but never lived to complete.
Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do is the book every Bruce Lee fan must have in his collection.

Review by hermit
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.
