Summary
  • Profiles the life and career of actor and martial artist Bruce Lee
  • "Willing is not enough--we must do." These famous words from the most powerful martial arts superstar who ever lived represent the essence of his life. The images and texts in "Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon" recall the notable achievements and thoughts left by this leading icon of the martial arts world. From his childhood to his international stardom, the book reveals a quiet family man behind the charismatic public persona. It shows the real Bruce Lee--who was so much more than an international film and martial arts celebrity. This brilliant photo essay is compiled and edited by Bruce Lee expert John Little. With a preface by Shannon Lee and a foreword by Linda Lee Cadwell, the text is drawn directly from Bruce Lee's own diaries and journals, as well as from interviews and the award-winning documentary "Bruce Lee: In His Own Words." For fans of Chuck Norris, martial arts, Wing Chun, Jeet Kune Do, and the Green Hornet, this book reveals the full range of Lee's talents and achievements through stunning and rare photography spanning the period from his early stage career in Hong Kong to his worldwide success as an actor and martial arts phenomenon. Selected with the assistance of Lee's widow, Linda Lee Cadwell, John Little presents a photographic catalog, accompanied by descriptive commentary, of all facets of this fascinating man, from the start of his career to his untimely and tragic death in 1973
