A behind-the-scenes look at the life of the most extraordinary martial artist of all time-Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon is an illustrated biography of this fascinating martial artist and movie star, from the start of his career to his untimely and tragic death in 1973. This book reveals a quiet family man behind the charismatic public persona. It shows the real Bruce Lee-the man who was so much more than an international film and martial arts celebrity. This brilliant photo essay-compiled and edited by Bruce Lee expert John Little with the assistance of Lee's widow, Linda Lee Cadwell-reveals never-before-published family photos, including rare photos of Bruce's childhood in Hong Kong. Tender moments with his children are caught on camera, and action shots from his martial arts films are shown. With a preface by his daughter Shannon Lee and a foreword by wife Linda, the text is drawn directly from Bruce Lee's own diaries and journals.
