The spectacular achievements of Bruce Lee in the worlds of both the martial arts and film is well known -- but that's not to say that it's well understood.
How did Bruce Lee achieve his phenomenal success? While hard work obviously played an important and integral role, it was Lee's philosophical outlook and thought processes that guide him and enabled him to actualize his full potential as a martial artist, as a film actor, writer, producer, and director, and perhaps, most important, as a human being. As Lee evolved his revolutionary, "non-restrictive" approach to martial art training and combat, he simultaneously evolved a unique, non-restrictive philosophy toward life and living, the central theme of which is "personal liberation."
LIBERATE YOURSELF! How To Think Like Bruce Lee is a ground-breaking guide that doesn't offer you a formulaic, rigid, one-size-fits-all philosophy, but rather a fluid set of operating principles you can use to cultivate a flexible, highly-adaptable attitude toward living life to its fullest, develop the skills and confidence required to free yourself from the chains of limitation, and raise your living to the level of an art form.
Each chapter explores a "core tenet" of Lee's philosophy in depth, including:
Drinking Your Tea From an Empty Cup
Maintaining Fluidity of Thought and Action
Immersing Yourself in the Moment
Refusing to Accept Boundaries and Limitations
Changing with Change
Hacking Away the Non-Essentials

Praise for Liberate Yourself
"Your inspiration continues to guide us toward personal liberation" -- that is the message I had engraved on my late husband, Bruce Lee's, headstone when he passed away in 1973. Today I am inspired by the publication of a book entitled "LIBERATE YOURSELF! - A Guide to Personal Freedom" by Chris Kent that elaborates on the message of personal liberation. Chris has studied Bruce's art and philosophy for forty years.He is a gifted martial artist and teacher, but beyond that he has grasped the underlying philosophy of Bruce's art and applied it to daily living. In reading "Liberate Yourself" one will not only understand Bruce Lee's way of thinking better, but will discover new ways of looking at and improving one's own life. In understandable language, Chris has laid out a blueprint for taking control and overcoming obstacles. I highly recommend Chris' book to anyone wanting to take the next step toward personal liberation."

Within the pages of LIBERATE YOURSELF Chris has not only provided a brilliant insight into the mind of Bruce Lee, but more importantly an easy access guidebook to self-discovery and personal liberation.” “It is the best book on applying Bruce's philosophy to everyday life that has ever been written.
- John Little
World-renowned fitness author, filmmaker
In “LIBERATE YOURSELF” Chris has succeeded in taking Bruce’s philosophical ideas and principles out of the martial art arena and into the arena of daily living. I think Bruce would be proud of the job Chris has done in bringing his philosophical thoughts and ideas into the public light and helping people understand how, by applying them in their own lives, they can in turn liberate themselves and actualize their own potential.

Bruce Lee’s closest friend and most senior student
What a read! Kent's pedigree within the lineage of Bruce Lee's teaching is undeniable but so is his humility as he engagingly condenses Lee's wisdom into a book that will lead the earnest martial artist, as well as all others who are genuinely willing to examine themselves, toward the practical application of enlightenment.
- Ron Renaud
Executive coach and speaker, author of The Uncompromised
I have read many books by other writers on self help and positive thinking! But I have to say that in your book Chris, I have never looked deeper into myself both on a personal level and with regards to my Jeet Kune Do. The area's that you cover which relate to looking and your physical, emotional and psychological self is amazing and I cannot now wait to get and read your other book, "P.L.A.N.--Personal Liberation Note Book." I will honestly say that it has made me look at things in a way that works for ME and not just for others.
- Rob Jarvis (Alfreton, England)
A brilliant read for anyone with a interest in self improvement. In this book Chris Kent does what other self improvement books never seem to manage and that is he guides you on how to apply Bruce Lee's teaching to your daily life and outside of the training environment.

This is one great book... Once I got the book, I dove right into it and have not been able to put it down. This is one of the best books I have read on the philosophy of Bruce Lee's JKD.
