Item description for Jeet Kune Do Conversations by Jose M. Fraguas...
Overview What exactly is Jeet Kune Do? Is it simply a fighter's personal expression in combat? Is it a style? Is it a process? Is it a product? Can it be taught? Can it be learned? While the founder felt there should be no such thing as a "fixed" system or method of fighting, he did believe there is definitely a progressive approach to training. Let Asian boxing champion Dan Lee, leading instructors Bob Bremer, Ted Wong, and Dan Inosanto, and legendary scriptwriter Sterling Silliphant explain the many concepts and principles of the art in a clear manner that everyone can understand. Packed with dynamic photographs, this book presents the ins-and-outs of the philosophy of the art of Jeet Kune Do.

Excellent Jun 24, 2005
One of the best books on JKD ever written. It is brilliant to just let the JKD experts talk. They contradict each other a bit, and their views overlap a lot. It is fascinating to me as a JKD guy to see all the differing views out there on JKD. The photos in the book highlight the techniques well. This is a really great book, it is FULL of great insights into JKD.
One of the best books on JKD History period Apr 23, 2005
In this book you will learn about bruce lee and JKD straight from the people who knew him best. It is very interesting to see how he positively affected so many lives. His art is explained by those who learned at the "masters" feet! Each one of them exemplifies a certain aspect and concept of JKD and it is through them that JKD continues to prosper.
Highly enlightening and enjoyable reading Apr 17, 2003
The interview with Chris Kent alone is worth the price of the book. I've only just bought the book, and have just read that chapter today, and I will most likely finish the rest of it by the end of tomorrow. I highly recommend this book, specifically the Chris Kent interview, to anyone who wants to improve their understanding of Jeet Kune Do.
A MUST READ FOR THE JKD ENTHUSIAST May 14, 2002
This is a most excellent work rendered by a really competent craftsman when it comes to the written word. The book is enlightening, interesting, and insightful. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found it hard to put down. The subjects have some diverse, and fascinating perspectives upon their take on Bruce Lee's martial art of Jeet Kune Do. It is that very diversity that enriches us, the readers of this worthy tome. Get it. Read it.

Most informative book on JKD thus far Feb 22, 2002
I've read maybe a dozen books on JKD and at least twice that many on Bruce himself, but this is the most informative book on JKD I've ever read. I've heard all the quotes hundreds of times, "Using no way as a way; having no limitation as limitation", but for the first time I really feel like I understand what Bruce meant. JKD is hard to describe, and even now (I don't remotely think myself an expert), I'd still have trouble trying to explain it, but after reading this book containing interviews with Bruce's friends, students and people carrying on the JKD legacy, it's all starting to make sense. What I thought I knew was a bit off, and as corny as it sometimes sounds, I can finally grasp what is meant by JKD being a way of life. Always being open to new things, never limiting yourself to any specific idea. A person eating Corn Pops all his life may never know the joys of Apple Jacks..and that's just sad. But seriously, if you have any questions about JKD, this book is a great start to understanding.
