This book is a collection of articles taken from the pages of Black Belt magazine that detail the life of Bruce Lee, from his childhood in Hong Kong to his rise to superstar status. Written at various times during Lee's career, these articles trace his development as a martial artist, from wing chun practitioner, student of Yip Man, to the founding of jeet kune do. The philosophy and techniques of his art are explained by an article written by Lee, and in interviews conducted in his Chinatown school. His work in the movies is also covered, the centerpiece being an article written by his wife Linda Lee about the making of the movie Way of the Dragon. Friends and fellow martial artists, including Chuck Norris, Mike Stone and Jhoon Rhee, and many celebrities, including Steve McQueen, James Coburn and Van Williams, tell of their involvement with Lee and the effect he had on their lives.
