You may be Bruce Lee's No.1 fan, or this may be your first encounter with him - either way you will find this book fascinating

Bruce Lee: Fighting Talk is a compilation of anecdotes, interviews, and short essays on the life and legacy of Bruce Lee, that were not included in the author's full-length Bruce Lee biography, Fighting Spirit. This book relects all facets of a complex man - Bruce Lee the super-celebrity and icon, the most exciting screen star of his day, and the most innovative martial artist of the modern era...and Bruce Lee, the flawed human, and the unfulfilled philosopher. The author also offers a reappraisal of Lee's tragic early death; deep insights into his underlying philosophy; and an unusual mix of photographs.

Review:

An endlessly stimulating account of Lee's life and times. -- Loaded

Deserves to find acclaim far beyond the circles of martial arts enthusiasts. -- FHM

From the Author:

After the publication (August 2002) of the expanded edition of Fighting Spirit, my full-length biography of Bruce Lee, I had no intention of ever writing anything further on the subject. Then my sister told me of a group of her co-workers who, inspired by Geri Halliwell, had forsaken their usual visit to the pub in order to take part in a yoga class... Now, Ms Halliwell achieved her end (pun intended) by doing yoga for several hours a day - and by following a further rigorous schedule of exercise and diet. Predictably, the motivation of my sister's co-workers lasted for about two classes before the regular pub socializing took over. Except that it didn't - quite! One of the girls made a connection with her experience and is now studying Yoga in India.

In a similar way, I was first attracted, superficially, to Bruce Lee because I thought that, in his own field, he was as good as Jimi Hendrix or George Best were in theirs! Many people are drawn to him because, in his actions or in his words, they recognize something desirable or something useful- or something real. So I began writing about him, not because I was an expert, but because I wanted to learn.
Some of the material in this book is no more than trivial and amusing. All of it is, I believe, at least 'interesting', and some of it is potentially very valuable - even life changing.
