In 1975, two years after the death of Bruce Lee, the Tao of Jeet Kune Do was released to a public eager to digest Bruce Lee's martial arts wisdom. A runaway success, the book quickly became the primary textual resource for Lee's martial art. But, almost immediately, claims were made that the contents of the book were not the work of Bruce Lee. Now the question of the authorship of the Tao of Jeet Kune Do is put to rest. In Who Wrote the Tao? The Literary Sourcebook to the Tao of Jeet Kune Do, James Bishop finally reveals the origins of the Tao of Jeet Kune Do along with a wealth of other information related to the book, including:


  • The identified sources for approximately 85% of the contents of the Tao of Jeet Kune Do
  • Detailed biographies of important contributors to the Tao of Jeet Kune Do, including Edwin Haislet, Roger Crosnier, Eric Hoffer, and more
  • A biography of Gilbert Johnson, the man chosen by Bruce Lee's widow to compile and edit the Tao of Jeet Kune Do
  • The true story of Joe Snyder, the first scholar of the Tao of Jeet Kune Do
  • Fascinating trivia about the Tao of Jeet Kune Do
  • Statistics about the Tao of Jeet Kune Do's contents


In addition, Who Wrote the Tao? The Literary Sourcebook to the Tao of Jeet Kune Do is formatted to make it easy to cross reference with the Tao of Jeet Kune Do.
