'Many of you know that I am a martial artist by choice, an actor by profession, and, by daily actualizing my potentiality through soulful discoveries and daily exercising, I hope to become also an artist of life.' - Bruce Lee'I venture that 95% of people have heard of Bruce Lee. They might not know everything about him, but they know his name. Isn't that just incredible? And what excites me about this book is that it's an opportunity for the reader to have a better understanding of why you continue to know his name.' - Shannon Lee
'Bruce draws you in with his martial strength and prowess, fascinates you with his aggression and superlative masculinity, and then you go deeper and learn about his philosophy, his depth as a thinker and a scientist, and that really hooks you.' - Ang Lee'Bruce Lee exemplified discipline and finding your own path to success while committed to doing something you love.' - Tony Hawk'Every time he spoke I would shudder because it was like poetry. He was like the first Asian rapper without a beat!' - Steve AokiBruce Lee's blockbuster movies, pioneering martial arts practice and motivational philosophy continue to inspire millions worldwide.
