Editorial Reviews

Review

"As someone who has been a Bruce Lee fan since I was a teenager, I remember the time when Bruce Lee's life was all myth and mystery. Thank you to journalist Charles Russo who has a written a fun-to-read Bruce Lee book for grownups. It both solidifies Bruce Lee's place in martial arts, pop culture, and history while at the same time demonstrating that there was a good reason Bruce was a walking legend in his brief time on this planet. Bravo!"—W. Kamau Bell, comic and host of CNN’s United Shades of America
(W. Kamau Bell 2016-06-22)

"Striking Distance: Bruce Lee and the Dawn of Martial Arts in America is one of those rare martial arts volumes that is likely to be widely read by individuals practicing a variety of styles."—Ben Judkins, Kung Fu Tea
(Ben Judkins Kung Fu Tea 2016-05-20)

"A must-have for fans of Bruce Lee and martial arts history."—Matthew Kaplowitz, thefightnerd.com
(Matthew Kaplowitz thefightnerd.com 2016-06-03)

"[Striking Distance is] a hard-bitten biography of Bruce Lee's early days before movies made him a mega-star. . . . [It] expertly separates fact from myth and also features some righteous fight scenes."—Dinner Party Download
(Dinner Party Download)

"For anyone interested in learning more about the origins of martial arts in this country, Striking Distance is a tremendous read."—Brian Burmeister, ARETE
(Brian Burmeister ARETE 2016-07-20)

"Russo's work is a useful addition to both the biographies of Bruce Lee, and the history of martial arts in general, and is quite an entertaining read as well."—Delano Lopez, Origins
(Delano Lopez Origins)
