Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon Reviews
I've only seen Bruce Lee in films a couple times. I know him more as a legend than a person. John Little's book, comprised of pictures of Lee throughout his life and career, and Lee's own words paint a picture of a genuinely interesting dude who dedicated his life to living how he wanted and was only interested in putting forth his best effort. The pictures here are big and capture the essence of someone worth admiring. Lee talks a great deal about his martial art, Jeet Kune Do, and it's fascinating to hear someone talk about something he understands so fully. I definitely want to read more about martial arts and fighting styles after reading this book. Being somewhat of a coffee table book, it's not super in depth, but as a deeper look into the life of Bruce Lee, it's a fascinating curiosity. I definitely want to check out Little's documentary "Bruce Lee in His Own Words" after reading this book.
The book had a lot of pictures of Bruce Lee, the book explained well about the attitude of Bruce Lee. In the book, Bruce Lee explained that if we just keep the same technique, and not try your own style, no new moves would be made and nothing would improve. He is also an huge inspiration to world wide and I admire his efforts for his career
one of our students is obsessed with bruce lee. this book came back from another school so i decided to read it (is is probably 75%) pictures. very interesting about his life. makes me want to go and get a couple of his movies to watch!
An amazing account of Bruce Lee's life full of inspirational quotes, wise reflections and a wide array of photos from his past.
The book is very good for a biography and very good to read. If u want to know how the inspiration of holly wood king fu movies then read this because he was in the early movies in he 70's. i high recommend this book to anyone who watches fighting movies.
