<p>Bruce Lee was a prolific reader; we have around 1,700 books in the Bruce Lee Archive. In the Bruce Lee Library series we will explore different books from Bruce’s library, sharing his annotations and underlined passages, and discussing how these books contributed to Bruce’s philosophy and life.</p> <p>Bruce Lee was extremely well read, his library had a range of topics on things he was interested in from philosophy to fighting techniques to self-help to acting and directing.</p> <p>The first book that we will be sharing from the Bruce Lee Library is the <em>Tao Te King</em> by Lao Tzu Interpreted as <em>Nature and Intelligence</em> by Archie J Bahm. Tao Te Ching is an ancient Chinese text written some time during the 5th or 4th century BC and its author Lao Tzu (Old Master) was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer, and the founder of philosophical Taoism. The book itself is only 81 sections and it’s very poetic. The <em>Tao Te Ching</em> has been translated into Western languages over 250 times.</p> <p>Full show notes at <a href= "https://www.brucelee.com/podcast">Brucelee.com/podcast</a></p> <p>Please write to us at <a href= "mailto:hello@brucelee.com">hello@brucelee.com</a> or tag us on social media @BruceLee #BruceLeePodcast.</p> <p>Help support the Bruce Lee Podcast and <a href= "https://shop.brucelee.com/collections/podcast-bundle">check out our Podcast Bundle on the Bruce Lee Store!</a></p> <p> </p>
