On "Zen in the Martial Arts" - Melissa Hyams / LA Times (Nov 2008)

Uplifting (*) - Madrid Railway Station (Fri 09 Aug 2013)

Melissa Hyams (*) on the book Zen in the Martial Arts (*) by Joe Hyams (*):
[it] isn't really about martial arts. It's about life (*) and philosophy (*), and how to turn a negative (*) into a positive (*), how to defuse a situation by the way you handle it.
via Joe Hyams dies at 85; former Hollywood columnist, bestselling author (*) by Dennis McCellan (*).

I was given a copy of this book by Jan shortly after Jenny died (*).

I was recently reminded of it when I was putting some of my old books into a new bookshelf. Will reread it in the next few weeks, as I think in some ways (from what I remember of it) it has helped and guided me through these last 5 years. And, it has set a direction that is shown through in this little corner (*) of the Internet.

  1. Interesting. I had my copy of the book out about a week ago reading a few of the stories that involved Bruce Lee.
