I have always been interested in the mental side of sports and life in general. An ad about this book peaked my curiosity. Once the book arrived and I read it I had a totally different understanding of Bruce Lee and appreciation of him. The depth of his intellect and appreciation of the individual human condition is astounding and gives understanding to the flexibility that he demonstrated in his life and through this book can transmit to others.
From the introduction by his wife and through the whole book there is practical wisdom on adapting to today's rapidly changing society and even more importantly how to change yourself to adapt to it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to live life to the fullest in the current environment and fulfil their destiny while expressing their individuality and uniqueness in the process.
This book is worth the read in any case because you will learn regardless of your previous background. You may not, however, be able to assimilate some of the core messages and will regard them as spiritual mumbo jumbo if you've never read anything about the topic. I know that if I'd read this book a year ago, I wouldn't have understood many of the key points, but because I've spent the better part of the past year involved in Eastern teachings, I've understood Bruce Lee's message much more profoundly.
I started with The Power of Now, but it made me a passive egg plant which no longer had any ambitions because I was convinced that being here and now was the only way to live. Note that I'm not dissing the book. It did open my eyes to many things, but you shouldn't stop anywhere, and certainly not at the Power of Now because there is much more to life than the author seems to think there is. I kept searching until I was content with the answers I found (Edit- months later: you'll be surprised how often you'll find yourself discovering new paradigms when you flow in harmony with the universe around you. What you are content with at one point may seem antiquated at another), but you should never stop trying to improve yourself, so I'm going to carry on doing what I do until my time on planet Earth ends. This must be the case with you if you wish to have a wonderful life. Continuous self improvement is one of Bruce Lee's core messages, one that separates his philosophy from many of the ancient Eastern teachings from which his mindset is derived. I will leave you with a quote of his:
"If you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it'll spread over into the rest of your life. It'll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level."
The book is a collection of Bruce Lee's words over the course of his short life, with background, history, and further explanations provided by the author who seemed to do a substantial amount of homework for this book. Anyways, a quick and very good read for anybody interested in learning more about Bruce Lee or his teachings and the way of Tao.
He said he was going to pass it on. After reading a bit of this book,
he decided to keep it for himself.
He said he really was glad I purchased this.
