Bruce Lee Artist of Life: Inspiration and Insights from the World's Greatest Martial Artist (Bruce Lee Library) Kindle Edition
Named one of TIME magazine's "100 Greatest Men of the Century," Bruce Lee's impact and influence has only grown since his untimely death in 1973. Part of the seven-volume Bruce Lee Library, this installment of the famed martial artist's private notebooks allows his legions of fans to learn more about the man whose groundbreaking action films and martial arts training methods sparked a worldwide interest in the Asian martial arts.
Bruce Lee Artist of Life explores the development of Lee's thoughts about Gung Fu (Kung Fu), philosophy, psychology, poetry, Jeet Kune Do, acting, and self-knowledge. Edited by John Little, a leading authority on Lee's life and work, the book includes a selection of letters that eloquently demonstrate how Lee incorporated his thought into actions and provided advice to others.
Although Lee rose to stardom through his physical prowess and practice of jeet kune do—the system of fighting he founded—Lee was also a voracious and engaged reader who wrote extensively, synthesizing Eastern and Western thought into a unique personal philosophy of self-discovery. Martial arts practitioners and fans alike eagerly anticipate each new volume of the Library and its trove of rare letters, essays, and poems for the light it sheds on this legendary figure.
This book is part of the Bruce Lee Library, which also features:
- Bruce Lee: Striking Thoughts
- Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon
- Bruce Lee: The Tao of Gung Fu
- Bruce Lee: Letters of the Dragon
- Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing the Human Body
- Bruce Lee: Jeet Kune Do

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
While there is duplication here of drafts and different publishing of similar articles, I'm glad they were all included. The revisions add additional depth, showing how much energy Bruce Lee put into evolving his personal philosophy. I wish this had been a required read in my college philosophy class.

It is a fabulous read but I must air some criticism for the editing, that is, the content editing. For some reason, the book repeats itself a number of times, often in a verbatim form, and at other times, with a few words changed. For instance, When Lee renders a Zen teacher’s advice to an over-eager student about not having an “empty cup” for learning, the story appears in its exact form a number of times later. This is true for other parts as well. I was reading the very same sections pages later. I was surprised by this, and further surprised by further repeatings. Was this meant to pad the book out? It absolutely did not need padding out in any way because the rest of the content is splendid. This was the only detraction from what was otherwise an insightful account of Bruce Lee’s essays and writings.
To sum up, I really recommend this book to anyone interested in furthering their interest in the mindfulness of Bruce Lee and his philosophies or to anyone looking to open their minds to a spiritually-detailing odyssey.
