The Treasures of Bruce Lee: The Official Story of the Legendary Martial Artist




(Applause Books). When you hear the name "Bruce Lee," no matter what you know about the man behind the legend, you instantly think of confidence, power, grace, style, and cool. He was more than just an action star: he embodied speed, strength, and charisma. He had an energy that ignited and inspired people all around the world, and he was famous for his physical as well as mental prowess. Bruce Lee was responsible for bringing Asian martial arts into the mainstream with his hugely popular movies. Through his own extraordinary, singular outlook, Lee even created his own martial art, Jeet Kune Do. In his wake after his sudden and untimely passing in his early thirties a chain of profound philosophical musings were left behind that are still relevant today. Bruce Lee is remembered not only as the martial artist who inspired people to better themselves physically and mentally but also as an actor, a writer, a director, a teacher, and a philosopher. Authorized by Bruce Lee Enterprises, The Treasures of Bruce Lee tells this unique man's story his aspirations, his family life, his passion for martial arts as never before, through painstaking research, never-before-seen memorabilia, and rare, unpublished photographs. It includes 5 posters and 15 removable facsimile items from the Bruce Lee Archives, including handwritten poems, membership cards, and Lee's illustrations and notes on all aspects of martial arts.

Just purchased this book today, been wanting to order it sooner, but I finally got a copy of it. I was not dissapointed at all, I am long time Bruce lee follower and have many books on him and this one is by far the most compelling one on him to date.

Excellent Book , Thanks to His beautiful Daughter Shanon.. and his lovely wife Linda.. This book goes to show you how much of an impact Bruce Lee still has on the entire world. If Bruce lee was physically here today , at age 73 he would still be able to do a lot of damage because his skill level was so high. He was faster and stronger than the average martial artist. The UFC MMA fighters of tday would have been in a lot of trouble if they had to face bruce while he was in his prime. eve at his old age of 73 they would still have a lot of trouble trying to take Bruce down because his skill level speed and the power was way beyond some one of his size . Today I have yet to see anyone as good as Bruce Lee . Be water My friend !! Tony The Dragon..
