This incredible book is in fact based on a Warner Bros documentary which was used as the premium for their re-release of Bruce Lee's greatest film, 'Enter The Dragon' in 1998. The documentary was called 'Bruce Lee In His Own Words', and this book is just that. It's almost like an autobiography because all the text is taken from loads of interviews with Bruce Lee himself, his films, and from his diaries and letters. Some of the comments are purely philosofical and it takes a bit of thinking to understand them, while some of them are just him speaking about his childhood and life etc.
The book is split into four sections; The Early Years, Hollywood, Hong Kong, and Family, as well as a Preface written by Bruce's daughter, Shannon Lee Keasler, a Foreword written by Bruce's wife Linda Lee Cadwell, an Introduction written by John Little, and finally an Epilogue, written by Brian Jamieson.
I have to say that probably the most touching part of this book is both the Preface and the Foreword, by Bruce's closest family, which describes their deep feelings towards Bruce, and how when they saw the documentary, 'Bruce Lee In His Own Words', "it was like Bruce was in the room with me again".
Not only has this book got some great text, all taken from things Bruce Lee said through his life, but the other brilliant thing is the photographs, taken from Bruce's films (behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera) and generally from his life.Read more ›
was a very touching picture of Bruce and a very young Brandon laying side by side "soaking up the rays", alas both lie together in death,
truly moving. Any Bruce Lee fan will eat this up, useful also for the Bruce Lee timeline. Top Marks.
