About the Author
John Little is uniquely suited to the task of relating the philosophy of Bruce Lee and his approach to life. Little has a degree in philosophy from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, is the author of two books on health and fitness (having spent over fifteen years as a writer for several fitness magazines), and is himself a student of Lee's art of jeet kune do. Selected by the Bruce Lee estate, Little is the only person who has ever been authorized to review the entirety of Lee's personal notes, sketches, and reading annotations and to edit books on the subject of Lee's martial art and its far-reaching philosophical underpinnings. Little's keen awareness of the subtleties of both Eastern and Western philosophy coupled with a respect for the preservation of the essence of Lee's words and meaning give this book an integrity that is all too rare.

Although I love martial arts, I do not usually enjoy reading very much. This book, however, was interesting from cover to cover. John Little did an excellent job collecting information from the Lee estate and interpreting it for all of us fans. It covered topics such as Jeet Kune Do, Gung Fu, philosophy, relationships, and life in general. I cannot wait to read more books written by Little and Bruce Lee himself.
