John Little is considered to be one of the world's foremost authorities on Bruce Lee. He's the only person who has ever been authorized to review the entirety of Lee's personal notes, sketches and reading annotations, giving him an insider's look at Lee's training methods and philosophies. He's shared this information with Lee's fans in his books published by Tuttle Publishing, including: Bruce Lee: Artist of Life; Jeet Kune Do: Bruce Lee's Commentaries on the Martial Way; Letters of the Dragon; The Tao of Gung Fu: A Study in the Way of Chinese Martial Art; Striking Thoughts: Bruce Lee's Wisdom for Daily Living and Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon.
"All types of knowledge ultimately leads to self-knowledge. So,
therefore, these people are coming in and asking me to teach them,
not so much how to defend themselves or how to do somebody in.
Rather, they want to learn to express themselves through some
movement, be it anger, be it determination, or whatever. So, in
other words, they're paying me to show them, in combative form the
art of expressing the human body." -Bruce Lee
"I suggest you read this book and use it to motivate yourself to pursue whatever goals you strive for in life. Here is the record of a man who had to overcome his own obstacles in life, and who achieved success because he believed in himself. Perhaps you can use this inspiration to achieve your own success. Even now, I feel Bruce's presence, and he still motivates me to this day. When I'm lifting weights...I max out my workout by doing one more rep for the old man upstairs and then do one for Bruce. It never fails!" -Allen Joe, from the Foreword
"The Bruce Lee Library stands as a definitive presentation of Bruce Lee's magnificent legacy. Each volume belongs on the bookshelf of every serious martial artist." -Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Nucleus
"The Art of Expressing the Human Body, the fourth volume in Tuttle's Bruce Lee Library, is attributed to martial arts titan Bruce Lee, but he is referred to throughout in the third person. Editor John Little has, however, produced a fitness book based closely on Lee's own exercises and beliefs, illustrated with pictures of the master in action" -Publishers Weekly
"...Bruce Lee books are now also available in ebook format...That's great; it's nice if you're traveling to take everything with you in one little small container so-to-speak." -Martial Thoughts Podcast
"His teachings (some of which were captured in his book The Art of Expressing the Human Body) served as the basis for many subsequent popular training and fitness programs such as Tae Bo and P90X." -Bruce Y. Lee, Forbes
