Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;Letters of the Dragon: Correspondence, 1958-1973andlt;/Iandgt; is a fascinating glimpse of the private Bruce Lee behind the public imageand#8212;a man with the patience and concern to dedicate as much effort to crafting a thoughtful personal answer to the letter of a young fan as to those from his old friends and associates; an extremely active man never too busy to make time for an old family friend in need of simple companionship; a man who never wrote without careful thought, and never thought from the heard alone, but always from the head and heart together.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The letters in this inspiring book track Bruce Lee's career and development from his decision, made while he was still in secondary school, to move to the US to further his education, through the many setbacks, redirected efforts, and triumphs of life that shaped his martial art and humanity, all the way to the last letter he ever composed, just hours before his sudden death.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;After absorbing the letters in this volume, the reader will inevitably find that the private Bruce Lee was every bit as great as the public Bruce Lee, and deeper and broader by far. andlt;iandgt;Letters of the Dragon: Correspondence, 1958-1973andlt;/iandgt; is conclusive evidence that a life lived well is never too short a life.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;This Bruce Lee Book is part of Tuttle Publishing's Bruce Lee Library which also features:andlt;iandgt;andlt;ulandgt;andlt;liandgt;Bruce Lee's Striking Thoughtsandlt;/liandgt;andlt;Liandgt;Bruce Lee's The Tao of Gung Fuandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt;Bruce Lee Artist of Lifeandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt;Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragonandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt;Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing the Human Bodyandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt;Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Doandlt;/liandgt;andlt;/ulandgt;andlt;/iandgt;
