But really, the book reads like a Twitter Feed. You could probably take this book in its entirety, and write it out, quote by quote, to twitter.
What this means is there is no depth. You get Lee's thoughts on a topic, but no concrete examples or additional expository text. Like reading The Book of Five Rings and trying to think about how it applies to your life.
I like that, and enjoy it. But I wanted to write this review so other people would know what to expect. There are other books that explain JKD much better by using Lee's quotes, and then adding additional exposition to further explain what the quote means. This book is more a philosophy book than a martial arts book.
I've only read about 1/3 of this book so far, and its the most detailed treatise on combat that I've yet encountered. As such it might be more useful for those with extensive martial arts experience, to spot those few things that they hadn't considered or known or had forgotten, than as introductory material for someone new to martial arts, where the totality of the detailed enumerations would probably be overwhelming.
