Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Bruce Lee's daughter illuminates her father's most powerful life philosophies and how we can apply his teachings to our daily lives.

Empty your mind; be formless, shapeless like water

Bruce Lee is a cultural icon, world renowned for his martial arts and film legacy. But Lee was also a deeply philosophical thinker, believing that martial arts are more than just an exercise in physical discipline - they are a perfect metaphor for personal growth.

In Be Water, My Friend Shannon Lee shares previously untold stories from her father's life along with the concepts at the core of his teachings. Each chapter reveals a lesson from Bruce Lee, expanding on the foundation of his iconic 'be water' philosophy to reveal a path to an enlightened way of being.

This is an inspirational call to action to consider our lives with new eyes and a testament to Lee's unique power to ignite our imaginations and transform our lives.

Excellent, I am touched

The author has really made the effort to do deep and try to unveil a more profound philosophy than most hold in mind. Well done.

Thanks.

Be Water, My Friend

A brilliant book explaining about the philosophy of Bruce Lee.

I really enjoyed this even more then I thought I would, Shannon’s writing and narration are perfect.

I believe everyone can take something from the teachings of Bruce.

Watered down rehashed non sense.

Seems like a money grab. The warrior within is a much better insight into how Bruce became BL that we know now. This is simply a rehash of the same old content that was available nearly 50 years ago. The paper back is $$$. I cannot express how rubbish this is. Do yourself a favour listen to the warrior within or read the tao of gung fu. skip this crap. wish I could get a refund.

Psychology 101...be strong in a cruel world.

In an attempt to sell conformation to not allow life to affect one as a psychological concept, the author failed to respect it as a Bruce Lee biography. Stuff according to Shannon would have been a more appropriate heading. Low key writing and and poor word choice at times.
