 Bruce Lee: The Pocket Essential Guide (View larger image)

Bruce Lee was the most influential martial artist of the last century. Way beyond his time in terms of his physical training, Bruce Lee went against the grain of traditional martial arts to develop his own unique martial art, Jeet Kune Do. However his art was much more than a physical fighting art, it was a philosophical way of life. Aside from being a world class martial artist, Bruce Lee was also a gifted film-maker and accomplished actor, appearing in over a dozen Hong Kong dramas before the age of 13. In 1966 at the age of 25 he appeared in the American-produced Green Hornet television series, which was to be the start of a newly revived acting career; one that would escalate him to international stardom. When his final film Enter The Dragon was completed, Bruce Lee was potentially the highest paid actor in the world. Sadly, he died in 1973 before he could reach the pinnacle of his career. This book thoroughly examines the films of Bruce Lee and explores some of the myths that surround them. It will also serve as a great introduction to Bruce Lee's life, his martial art, his philosophy and his poetry.
