The world was electrified in 1973 when Enter the Dragon was released. Western audiences had never seen a screen hero with such charisma, on screen presence and athletic grace. Sadly, its star, Bruce Lee, died three weeks before its release-yet, on the basis of Enter the Dragon and four other Hong Kong productions, Bruce Lee has become an immortal icon, a man with a following that reaches every corner of the globe with an almost religious fervor. What is it about Bruce Lee that captures the attention of so many? Remembering Bruce reveals the real Bruce Lee, a passionate man whose martial arts skill and philosophical teachings have attracted generations to his message. More than an actor, Bruce Lee was a teacher who inspired countless people to honestly express themselves and become better human beings. Remembering Bruce examines Lee's legacy not just as a star and martial artist, but as a teacher and motivator.

Each chapter explores a different side of Bruce Lee:
A martial artist whose almost superhuman abilitiestransformed the sport
A movie star, the first international Asian star (and his complete filmography)
The philosopher, and the source of his values, beliefs and discipline
The family man, devoted husband and father
His legend, and information on the new Bruce LeeHistorical Society
The legacy, including college courses taught on his philosophical concepts.
Of the many books on Bruce Lee, most deal with the mechanics of his art or are repetitive biographies. Remembering Bruce is special. Written by an educated fan who is also a martial artist, Remembering Bruce unveils the truth behind the Bruce Lee myth: that Bruce Lee was much more than a chop-socky actor-indeed, that he was an innovative thinker, a great mind of his time whose legacy will endure.
James Bishop, a graduate of Brookhaven College, is a prolific writer whose articles have appeared in the Dallas Morning News, Black Belt Magazine, Inside Kung Fu, and Bruce Lee Magazine, among others. Prominent in the martial arts community, he often speaks on the topic of role models. He has also worked with police departments instituting anti-gang seminars.
