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.

a great achievement

Thank you Shannon, this book was a great listen. I loved your interpretations on your father's philosophies, and the way you hit the mark on many of the most essential observations and teachings of metaphysical / spiritual growth. The last quarter of the book was particularly inspiring. Martial arts practitioners and seekers of any type of self betterment or skill refining should find this a reassuring listen. It sweeps some of most important and fundamental pointings you're likely to find. And if you've ever been captivated by Bruce's being, you're in for a treat to hear it from someone with such a well rounded viewpoint. I came away feeling connected, and inspired. x
