Format: Paperback
This is the best biography I've read about Lee. Bruce Lee's wife captures the intensity of this very gifted man. He was truly incredible. I thought this might be a "gloss over" because she is writing about her husband, but she chose to tell the good, the bad, and the ugly. After finishing this very fast read, you will have a much better, balanced picture of an extraordinarly talented martial artist. Lee was a perfectionist bordering on fanaticism. He was born with several gifts that enhanced his performance: superior reflexes, extended reach, etc. He took the best from many different fighting styles and combined them into a martial philosophy that was ahead of it's time. Lee hated the "style trap" so many martial artists fall into. "Use what works, discard the rest." So said Bruce Lee.

This is a great biography. This is a must read for all fans of Bruce Lee. Linda pulls no punches, is completely honest, and very thorough in her tale of her husband.

Bruce Lee died when I was only 3 years old and yet I was already obsessed. He worked so hard and yet his life cut short entirely too soon. Taking away no doubt the years that his children and his wife would have cherished. This book is written by Linda, Bruces wife, and I believe that adds to the credibility. She doesn't try to cover up his flaws or make him this perfect man. She loved this man, stood by this man, was there for him and understood him better than anyone. I do not totally understand all of the philosophy but did enjoy the book and helped me to understand him and his life through Linda even more. Thanks to Linda for taking the time to share him.
