Bruce Lee was an innovative martial artist, not only in the training hall but on film. He played Kato to the Green Hornet on the 1967-8 Twentieth Century Fox Television series of that name. He was the star of The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, Game of Death, and Enter the Dragon. He also studied for a philosophy doctorate at the University of Washington and won the Hong Kong cha-cha championship as a teenager in 1958. A multifaceted charismatic figure who would stand out in a crowd of hundreds, he was also a family man who valued his privacy. From Hong Kong to California, the author has spoken with those who knew Bruce Lee well, and he brings to light much new information. We follow Bruce through his rowdy childhood, his early martial arts training, his journey to America to claim U.S. citizenship, his romances, fights, and meteoric course through Hollywood and the Hong Kong film industry. The book closes with a sweeping presentation of Bruce Lee's philosophy, followed by a comprehensive Bruce Lee source list for both film and print media.About the Author:
