Book: The Tao of Jeet Kune Do by Bruce Lee


The Tao of Jeet Kune Do is a fascinating and original book by Bruce Lee. It is compiled from his notes and essays, which were largely penned when Bruce was laid up in hospital for a six month stint, recovering from a back injury.

The book goes into the depths of effective fighting techniques and training which are interesting enough for a non martial-artist, but the real meat for the casual reader is in the philsophical gems scattered throughout the book. It is here that one may learn many lessons applicable to sports, strategies, trading and mastery in general.
