Editorial Reviews

Review

"A wonderful book, at times even fascinating, that not only reveals the depth of Bruce Lee's thoughts on the higher purpose of the martial arts, but also serves as a wonderful introduction to the way of gung fu." --Martial Arts Legends blog

"The Bruce Lee Library stands as the definitive presentation of Bruce Lee's magnificent legacy. Each volume belongs on the bookshelf of every serious martial artist." --
Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Nucleus

"Technical yet poetic,
The Tao of Gung Fu: A Study in the Way of Chinese Martial Art includes over 100 photos and line drawings as Lee explains his holistic approach. It was left unfinished at his death." --Publishers Weekly

"…Bruce Lee books are now also available in ebook format…That's great; it's nice if you're traveling to take everything with you in one little small container so-to-speak." --
Martial Thoughts Podcast

"…the image he draws on the reader's mental chalkboards is of that of a genuinely good-hearted teacher who will educate you on anything but falsehoods. I would recommend this book to the gung fu enthusiast before I do any other title on the subject." --
HubPages.com

"
Bruce Lee, The Tao of Gung Fu is a window into Lee's thinking in the early 1960s…This is an enjoyable and educational read for any serious martial arts practitioner." --Full Potential Martial Arts
