Invariably, his degree in America was on Philosophy.So it will come as little suprise then that Bruce will have bee a lot of houghts on aspects of life.

Yet just about physical techniques but about the mental and spiritual implication of martial arts as well.As with any ideas I could see many of Bruce ’ s views in his nove were colored by his life expectancies.

Another is great book with a philosophical contradiction, though Bruce Lee is a great and successful person to look up to.
