Summary

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 own 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 in 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 are able to see clearly 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.
