    I love short and concise books. Hourly History's short 36 page-reads feels like they were custom made to my taste. They are really informative and intriguing. They are like perfect appetizers, you finish the books yearning for more, you might even end up checking all the archives and other sources that they mention in the text. I loved the book about Alan Turing and now this one about Bruce Lee too. My only qualm is a paradox. I was not satisfied at the end of the book.

I loved the book about Alan Turing and now this one about Bruce Lee too. My only qualm is a paradox. I was not satisfied at the end of the book. I just wanted the book to go on and on. :D The first thing that used to come to my mind upon hearing the name 'Bruce Lee' is "martial arts" and faint glimpses of the movie "Enter the dragon." But I didn't know that Bruce Lee created his own hybrid version of martial arts - Jeet Kune Do. I loved reading about its philosophy especially thoughts like: "The philosophy of Jeet Kune Do is one of openness and receptivity and its core belief is that the truth only exists outside all molds and patterns." "Key to Jeet Kune Do is the ability to adapt to the constant changes of real combat with a living, breathing opponent." "Be fluid and adaptable." Lee's students trained in kicking, punching, trapping, and grappling while other's focused on only one or two of these things. I knew he was a famous actor in Hollywood. But I didn't know that he started work as a child actor in the Hong Kong film industry. He has about 46 films to his credit, only 6 of them feature films he starred in as an adult. He was a trailblazer in more than one way - in the way he created his own martial arts philosophy, the way he fought endemic institutional racism in Hollywood and established himself as a superstar and icon, how he broke the Hollywood stereotypes about Asian people in general and Chinese people/ masculinity in particular. I felt that his life is a true inspiration. Despite being bad at academics, Bruce Lee was a prolific writer. He has written many books about martial arts. He also worked as a writer-screenwriter for some of his movies. Can I just add that I loved all his quotes in this book? Jotting some of them here for my future reference: “Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” “There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.” "A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract; and when he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, ‘I’ do not hit, ‘it’ hits all by itself.” “To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” “Art reaches its greatest peak when devoid of self-consciousness. Freedom discovers man the moment he loses concern over what impression he is making or about to make.”

    Before picking up this story, I knew next-to-nothing about Bruce Lee.  However, this is a fascinating (though short) story about a uniquely talented man.  It was amazing to learn that Bruce's father was an established opera singer (what a dichotomy between opera and martial arts).  One of the things I like about Hourly History is they usually use quotes from the person highlighted (to open the chapters).  This gives the reader insight into the way that person thought.  Bruce Lee led a full and ev Before picking up this story, I knew next-to-nothing about Bruce Lee.  However, this is a fascinating (though short) story about a uniquely talented man.  It was amazing to learn that Bruce's father was an established opera singer (what a dichotomy between opera and martial arts).  One of the things I like about Hourly History is they usually use quotes from the person highlighted (to open the chapters).  This gives the reader insight into the way that person thought.  Bruce Lee led a full and eventful life in his 32 years.  One can only feel for Bruce's wife, who lost her husband and son when they were reaching for the pinnacle of stardom.  Bruce was revolutionary in so many aspects.  I was stunned to learn about his successes in cha-cha dancing, boxing, martial arts, and the movie set.  This book explains the long shadow Bruce Lee leaves, even after death.  This is a wonderful reading experience; I was finished before I realized it.

    I have studied Tae Kwon do years ago and I always find the athletes who are the top of the martial arts are always so amazing with what they can do. Jean Claude Van Damme was what got me to love martial arts with bloodsport but reading about the legend that is Bruce Lee is just amazing. There are not many martial artists who have the abilities of a Bruce Lee. In fact until I saw Ong Bok I believe that none could compete that were Asian in the martial arts. Mainly you see more cultures now in the I have studied Tae Kwon do years ago and I always find the athletes who are the top of the martial arts are always so amazing with what they can do.

    Short but informative This biography is written in a very approachable style. It is clear that the author has put a lot of research into this work. I have had a long-term interest in Bruce Lee and the martial arts, yet still found new information in this. The missing star in my review is simply for the brevity of the book, which means a lot of information is glossed over rather than fully explored.

    Ce petit ebook retrace la vie de ce géant des arts martiaux qu'était Bruce Lee. J'avais déjà vu plusieurs documentaires sur ce héros et dans cette courte biographie, j'ai appris deux ou trois nouvelles choses, notamment par rapport aux différents prénoms de Bruce, mais aussi à savoir qu'il était né le jour du dragon en astrologie chinoise. Une biographie basique et complète pour comprendre le parcours dans les grandes lignes de la vie du petit dragon. Ce petit ebook retrace la vie de ce géant des arts martiaux qu'était Bruce Lee.

    Be like water I really enjoyed reading about the life of Bruce Lee. Martial arts is not one of my interests, but the information was interesting. Bruce Lee set the bar for martial arts, and he set it high. He was in the process of making a movie when he died, and the cause of death is still being debated.

    A good short story of a legend Written to the point and succinct biography of a young man who died before his time. He was the first wave of the martial artist who popularized it in the west

    Pretty good and informative All in all a pretty good book well put together and researched. Although the author tried to keep neutral stance at time it came across as sceptic of real reports, but leaving plenty of room for the reader to make their own mind.

    This was a nice, short read! Bruce Lee is a legend and learning a bit more about him was nice. Also loved that it was short, like I said, and you can read it within a day (or evening). It's also nice to freshen up your memory! This was a nice, short read! Bruce Lee is a legend and learning a bit more about him was nice.

    Bruce Lee will always be my hero! For an "hourly biography" this works. It covers all the important points of a life well-lived. I'm glad he'll live forever to inspire the future.
