A few of my favorite books

You can pretty much guess what they are about by the title

I didn't know Bruce Lee had written anything, though I can't say I'm surprised he did.
How was he as a writer?

Dude he wrote like 20 books

Not only was he a master martial artist, but a master philosopher as well.
Here's some excerpts from his book "Tao of Jeet Kune Do"

To obtain enlightenment in martial art means the extinction of everything which obscures "true knowledge," the "real life." At the same time, it implies boundless expansion and, indeed, emphasis should fall not on the cultivation of the particular department which merges into the totality, but rather on the totality that enters and unites that particular department.

The way to trascend karma lies in the proper use of the mind and the will. The oneness of all life is a truth that can be fully realized only when false notions of a separate self, whose destiny can be considered apart from the whole, are forever annihilated.

Voidness is that which stands right in the middle between this and that. The void is all-inclusive, having no opposite - there is nothing which it excludes or opposes. It is living void, because all forms come out of it and whoever realizes the void is filled with life and power and the love of all beings.

Nothingness cannot be defined; the softest thing cannot be snapped

Wisdom does not consist of trying to wrest the good from the evil but in learning to "ride" them as a cork adapts itself to the crests and troughs of the waves.

An assertion is Zen only when it is itself an act and does not refer to anything that is asserted in it.

In Buddhism, there is no place for using effort. Just be ordinary and nothing special. Eat your food, move your bowels, pass water and when you're tired go and lay down. The ignorant will laugh at me, but the wise will understand.

To see a thing uncolored by one's own personal preferences and desires is to see it in its own pristine simplicity.

It just goes on like this... then it slowly blends into Jeet Kune Do.

If I had any role-model in the world, it would be Bruce Lee

Hey, that's pretty good stuff. I'm not exactly well versed in this area, so I don't know how it stacks up against the rest, but I like what I see.
