During his lifetime, legendary martial artist Bruce Lee formulated a complex personal philosophy - a synthesis of Eastern and Western ideals - that extolled the virtues of knowledge and total mastery of one's self. However, most of his philosophical writings could be found only within the personal library of the Bruce Lee estate - until now."The Warrior Within" is the most comprehensive volume of these teachings, meant to help you apply Lee's philosophies to your own life. This unique guide reveals such life-affirming secrets as: seeing the totality of life and putting things into perspective; understanding the concept of Yin and Yang; defeating adversity by adapting to circumstances; and, tapping into inner spiritual forces to help shape the future. With a foreword by Linda Lee Cadwell and photographs and other memorabilia from Bruce Lee's short but celebrated life, "The Warrior Within" is an engrossing and easy-to-understand guide to the little-explored world of Bruce Lee. John Little has been identified as "one of the foremost authorities on Bruce Lee in the world" by "Black Belt" magazine.He edited a three-volume series for the Bruce Lee estate and has written articles for several publications, including "Men's Fitness", "Official Karate", and "Inside Kung Fu".
Bruce Lee as philosopher/thinker
The cultivation of the "Warrior Within" has as its first requisite the comprehension of a philosophical perspective that, to many of us in the West, will surely represent a brand-new outlook on life and on the ways of the world. This book is an attempt to present just such a perspective through the philosophical insights left to us by the late Bruce Lee. It has long been my contention that what set Lee apart from every other martial artist of his generation was not his physical prowess (as remarkable as this was) but rather his mind, and that his insights and philosophical perceptions have a much broader application than may have heretofore been considered. While many of us recall growing up in the 70s watching Bruce Lee -- the figher, or Bruce Lee -- the actor; now that we are grown up and, for the most part, with families of our own, it behooves us to take a look at the human being that lay behind the legend. What made Lee so successful? How was he able to overcome such obstacles as racism? And how could a man who only lived 32 years have been so deep, so insightful, and also such a prolific writer, a loyal friend, an attentive father, a devoted husband,a dedicated artist and self-help authority? This book answers these and many other questions about Bruce Lee and his incredible belief system and, I think, positions Lee correctly: not as "the baddest man on the planet", but rather as one of the most intelligent philosophical minds of the 20th century. My contribution then, if you'd care to call it that, is not to the substance of Lee's philosophy, which is entirely his achievement, but rather to the form of its presentation. My intention within the pages of this book is to take both the message and teachings of Bruce Lee and present them in a manner that will, hopefully, have some relevance to your life, whatever your occupation

Bruce Lee hat nicht nur in seiner Kampfkunst die Anwendung von Kung Fu demonstriert sondern auch in anderen Lebensbereichen. Es ging ihm m.E. vor allem um alle Lebensbereiche und das Leben an sich, so wie um das Miteinander zwischen Menschen und Kulturen. Das ist glaube ich der Öffentlichkeit im Allgemeinen nicht so bewusst. In diesem Buch kann man das lernen.
I was not disappointed :)
John Little has written a book that is easy to get involved in and helps the reader to understand the differences between Eastern and Western approaches to living a satisfying life. By using smallish sections within each chapter, he has created a book that is easy to pick up and read for a short time and yet still learn a lot.
I particularly enjoyed discovering the contrasts between Bruce Lee's views and those expressed in the classic texts of Chinese philosophy, such as the Tao Te Ching and the writings of Chuang Tzu.
In short, a most accessible and enlightening book about Bruce Lee's "way of no way".
