Product description

Review

This is a unique approach to biography...Its fascinating that Lees legacy is so far reaching and unites so many influential people, from California Senators to movie stars, Boxing legends and MMA pioneers. Bruce Lee: Conversations is an excellent alternative to the many threadbare Lee biographies available, and a fascinating read... --FHM magazine

An excellent insight into Bruce Lees influence on some of todays top stars - and a new perspective on the man himself. --Mens Fitness

Bruce Lee: Conversations provides a unique comprehensive view of a martial arts legend. What makes the work stand out from other books written on Bruce Lee is its exhaustive list of primary source material. This is no compilation of recycled interviews, but fresh reflections on the life of the Little Dragon. These raw interviews provide the reader with insights into different stages and areas of his life...If you thought you knew Bruce Lee, think again! --Martial Arts Illustrated

Bruce Lee may be dead...but his undoubted influence certainly lives on. This publication is packed with very informative interviews and information of the utmost interest to people...I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending it --The Daily Star

…thought-provoking, enjoyable and fascinating interviews --Boxing News/Fighting Fit

Once i started to look through this book, i just couldn't put it down. I am a huge fan of Bruce and this book is very interesting. Quite different to most other books on Bruce, not alot of pictures, mainly some black and white ones in the middle, but that is no worry, the best part of this book is to just read the opinions of Bruce by so many different people from all walks of life, some you have heard of and some you ain't. It's a fascinating read and makes you realise how much he's missed, admired and how much impact he's had on the world and still does to this day and beyond, It still amazes me to this day just how prolific Bruce was, and how many lives he has touched and changed and made better. He, in my opinion is a true icon, a legend, an innovator, a pioneer, he was the total package, the real deal! i could go on and on, just get this book, it won't disappoint, you need this book in your collection, worth every penny. Thankyou Fiaz Rafiq for a great read. :-)

I'm a massive Bruce Lee fan and I am finding this book really interesting. It's gives us fans more of an insight into his personality and the intensiveness of his dedication. Many of the recollections make you realise how good Bruce Lee was, as a martial artist, an actor and how he just loved life. There are a few dodgy insights with no evidence into the circumstances of his death, but nothing more than opinion from friends who believe something more occurred on 20th July 1973. I'm nearly two thirds into the book and would recommend it as a good read, even to dip in and out of for motivation and inspiration.

As someone who was growing in Sheffield, UK, in my teens during the 1970s, I vividly remember Bruce Lee and his cult status of being the best martial artist of his time and the movie: "The Way of the Dragon" in 1972. But it was not until the shock news of Bruce Lees’s sudden untimely death around July, 1973 - which was due to him taking an aspirin tablet for a headache which led to his death. In recent months, I came across this book: “Bruce Lee Conversations” when I met the author Fiaz Rafiq at a "Supporting Syria Fundraising" event in Manchester who kindly signed my copy of his book, there.

The book is a fascinating read and I could not put it down and many of the people interviewed in this biography of Bruce Lee truly admired him so much and he is still missed so much. Most of the people remarked on how much impact he had made across the world in his short-life and without any doubt everyone referred to late Bruce Lee (BL): as a legendary icon who ‘is still truly, truly missed and one of a kind’. As I remember, within one month of his death, in August/September 1973, "Enter the Dragon" got released and became an overnight box -office success - all over the world raving about this movie that gained a cult status, many of my college fellow students constantly talked about the movie blow-by-blow. One of the most intriguing aspects of the book is the section at page(s) 245-49, during the conversation with the Giant NBA Basket-Ball Player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (K.A-J) - who was a Muslim. K.A-J got a part in BL’s movie: "Game of Death" and he K.

Format: Hardcover
Having been a fan of the little dragon since I was a little kid, and having read most articles and bios & been exposed to an almost endless stream of biopics and documentaries (of varying quality), I can honestly say this is one of my favourites. This book takes the form of interviews with people who (in most cases) either grew up with him in Hong Kong, or were fortunate enough to have been "in the right place at the right time" leading to them training with him for a short while or meeting him professionally. This gives a unique insight and perspective into his personality, sense of humour and character. Most of the 50 interviews contained herein are relevant and thought-provoking; saying that, a couple (especially towards the end of the book) are less so and appear rushed(?). These interviews (it's obvious which ones when you read them) come across as an opportunity for a shameless self-plug for the individuals and/ or their styles. In spite of these, it does not detract too far from or otherwise mar what is a very simple, "unorthodox, but effective" approach. If you are a Bruce Lee fan (or simply interested in martial arts history), you won't be disappointed and this book will happy find a place on your shelf.
