4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Denise R. on 24 Feb. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This review is from the point of view of someone who's kind of new to Bruce Lee. That's not to say I haven't heard of him, it's just that I don't know a whole lot about him. I've seen a couple of his movies, and liked them. And, I grew up in Seattle where he also lived, and there was always buzz about him.

So when I was offered a copy of this book for possible review, I indulged my curiosity and accepted. I quickly found that this isn't the sort of book you just read - it's one you also experience.

As you open the cover, you get the first surprise - a large pouch, attached to the inside cover, printed with photos of Lee, into which is tucked a full-size Chinese-language poster of his film, The Big Boss. There's also a reproduction of one of his hand-drawn bookmarks - which of course could come in very handy if you don't read the book in one session).

There are 19 chapters, each dealing with a different topic or period in Lee's life. Some examples (there are more too): Origins & Family; Early Years; Hong Kong Movies; Wing Chun & Yip Man; Fitness Training Regime & Diet; Jun Fan Gung Fu; On Screen in America; The Philosophy of Bruce Lee.

Some chapters are devoted to individual films: The Big Boss; Fist of Fury; Way of the Dragon; Enter the Dragon.

There's a real treasury of photos here. There are ones of Bruce's family and childhood, of him training in classes in Seattle, early Hollywood appearances, training for films, movie stills. There's a full-page photo of Lee's hand-annotated copy of The Tao of Jeet Kune Do. Some photos span two full pages.

The book is printed on high-quality glossy paper. It is high quality throughout, lavishly and thoughtfully assembled in honor of the man and his work.

Paul Bowman is respected as an expert on Bruce Lee here in the UK and has often appeared in various documentaries giving his views on Mr Lee. However,when it comes to the 'Treasures of Bruce Lee', there are quite a few inaccuracies and omissions which is a shame as I'm sure he worked hard with the Bruce Lee estate to help publish it. The photos, which as an another reviewer pointed out the print is so small its barely readable.The photo captions are misleading in their information and well known faces shown in the photos don't even get a mention. Stills from enter the dragon for example showing Bruce posing a fight routine with Bolo are described as an actual fight scene ( which never took place). The time line for the placement of Artifacts seems out of sync with the chapters its supposed to represent.
Facsimile documents are are also wrongly captioned. Who was the proof reader for this book? as it wasn't Paul Bowman as I'm sure he might have corrected a few issues. My copy came with a couple of pages missing and a number of artifacts missing as well. So not best pleased. The book is feels like a cash-in on the recent documentary 'Iam Bruce Lee' as evidenced by the logo on the cover. Its a nice coffee table book and a introduction to Bruce Lee for the uninitiated, but if your an aficionado don't expect any surprises on the info front.
On the plus side, there are a number of never seen before ( well I haven't seen them before) photos from the Lee family album and from his films as well.The color advertisement posters for all of his films are really nice to look at and would look superb if framed and hung on a wall.
Treasures of Bruce Lee could be so much better if it had been edited properly and Proof read.

The Standard Edition Book of the Treasure of Bruce Lee: this is the perfect book for Bruce lee Fans but I have found that their are two items missing from the book , the reproduction of the ticket of enter the dragon was not included in the book when I receive it and if you look at the video on you tube of Shannon lee, she talks about the book and what you will have and also a reproduction of the ticket of enter the dragon but when I receive the book the reproduction of the ticket was not in the book only the poster of enter the dragon and you do have the reproduction ticket of the way of the dragon. But this is a very good treasure book but if you had all the reproduction tickets of all the Bruce lee films then this will be a real treasure. if you have the limited edition book with Sharon lee signature you get a glass cup plus the reproduction ticket of enter the dragon which I saw on you tube videos, but there is a difference between standard edition and limited edition and also if you look at the back of the standard edition book you see one items displayed one item is not with the items you get with the standard book you will notice when you have this book

A great addition to anyone's library who's interested in the life and art of Bruce Lee.

Over the years there have been several of these "artefact" books on a variety of subjects, from Beatles to Sinatra. I know, I've got them! But there's something more to this one. The recreation of his note pads and various posters has a poignant feel that reminds you that he was taken from us too soon.

Beautifully presented and worth every penny.
