In his lifelong quest for self-knowledge and personal expression, Bruce was constantly studying, analyzing and modifying all available relative information his principle source was his personal library which consisted of over 2.000 books dealing with all forms of physical conditioning, martial arts, fighting techniques, defenses and related subjects. In 1970, Bruce sustained a rather severe injury to his back. His doctors ordered him to discontinue the practice of martial arts and to remain in bed to allow his back to heal. This was probably the most trying and dispiriting time in Bruce's life. He stayed in bed, virtually flat on his back for six months, but he couldn't keep his mind from working - the result of which is this book. The bulk of these writings was done at that time, but many scattered notes were recorded at earlier and later times. He intended it as a record of one man's way of thinking and as a guide, not a set of instructions. If you can read it in this light, there is much to be aware of on these pages. And, you probably will have many questions, the answers to which you must seek within yourself. The 2.000 or so books he owned and the countless books he read, described the individual ''discoveries'' of thousands of men before him. There's nothing new within this book there are no secrets. ''It's nothing special,'' Bruce used to say.
