Letters of the Dragon: Correspondence, 1958-1973 is a fascinating glimpse of the private Bruce Lee behind the public image. So much has been written about Bruce Lee-the martial arts superstar whose combination of strength, agility and charisma are legendary-but seldom are we able to see beneath the veneer of Lee's public image to view his inner self. Bruce Lee Letters of the Dragon does just that-offering a highly personal view of the man through the letters he wrote to his close friends and family from his teenage years right up until his untimely death in 1973 at the tender age of 32. This unparalleled collection of Bruce Lee's personal correspondence begins with his high school days in Hong Kong and continues throughout the period when he was working as a successful actor in America and Hong Kong, right up until the time he died. During this period he was also developing radically new concepts about Asian martial arts-including his own Jeet Kune Do martial arts system. In these letters, we can see all the optimism, tenacity, integrity and intense loyalty for which Bruce Lee is known and adored by millions of fans today. More than a fascinating chronicle of his rise to superstardom, these letters offer intimate glimpses of the artist, husband, father and friend behind the legend. This Bruce Lee Book is part of the Bruce Lee Library which also features: Bruce Lee: Striking Thoughts Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon Bruce Lee: The Tao of Gung Fu Bruce Lee: Artist of Life Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing the Human Body Bruce Lee: Jeet Kune Do

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Letters of the Dragon: Correspondence, 1958-1973 collects hundreds of letters from the movie star, mostly to his family. His fond and matter-of-fact missives about shooting schedules and his pets make it easy to forget what a huge star he was." - Publishers Weekly
"...Bruce Lee books are now also available in ebook format...That's great; it's nice if you're traveling to take everything with you in one little small container so-to-speak." -Martial Thoughts Podcast
"Most important is how private and human this collection of letters will make you feel about Bruce. Here are not only his teachings and expertise, but his weaknesses, doubts, and his burning desire to grow as a person." -Fight Nerd blog
"To get some insight over Bruce Lee's thoughts and personal interactions, I recommend reading Bruce Lee: Letters of the Dragon. It is a refreshing change from books on technical martial concepts and second-hand accounts that praises the man, without acknowledging his vulnerabilities." -Logen Lanka, Way of Ninja
"After reading these letters, I have to say that it gave me a far better idea of who the author was as a person than a straightforward non-fiction biography would've. The fact that he was human just like everybody else was something that I could spot in the first couple of letters that I read. While he might not have stuck to the rules of correct English grammar, his clear enjoyment of letter writing is almost contagious." -HubPages
