Throughout history there are people who appear that change the course of nearly everything they touch The original point of influence may be in their sport or career of choice but the ripples extend far from there sometimes covering the entire globe Muhammad Ali Elvis Julia Child; just a few of the people who excelled in their craft but in the end were much bigger than just their skill they had become historical figures Bruce Lee was one of those people and this book The Treasures of Bruce Lee captures not only his story but the feeling of seeing a revolutionary life come into fruition and get cut so terribly shortWritten by Paul Bowman and put together by Applause Books and Bruce Lee Enterprises this new volume celebrates the legend of Bruce Lee with brand new artifacts from his studios early demonstrations and even removable movie posters It’s like a portable museum for true fans of the martial arts legendThere is a remarkable attention to detail which shouldn’t be surprising since Bowman has already written numerous books on the subject and is a martial artist himself Lee’s daughter Shannon also lends her voice to a forward on the book not only giving it her blessing but also lending it credibility in a genre full of “unauthorized” histories She celebrates the joy at seeing some of these old seemingly lost pieces of her father’s legacy brought back and reprinted in such fine detail The book is a prize for longtime fans and those who are just beginning to find an interestOne of the pieces I appreciated most was getting to read some of his own words shown once in his own handwriting in letters to friends over the years In one correspondence he replies to someone who just helped induct him into the “Hall of Fame” for martial artists Lee responds “such a plaue is to me like nothing” He’s not being mean or glib about the honor just trying to communicate that he was not in it for the gloryHe clearly understood his fame but also felt trapped by it at times He wanted to share his teaching with as many people far and wide as he could and continue to perfect it continue to grow in the style which eventually came to be known as Jeet Kune Do It is a glimpse into the mind of someone the world lost tragically well before he could watch his dreams roll across the world like a tidal waveThe construction and printing In the book are also exceptional and in whole remind me of another book I was given as a gift a couple years ago The Stephen King Illustrated Companion So anyone who loves this style of collection that one is absolutely worth a look as well The 5 star is mostly my personal bias but the book is of a visual memorabilia than a well written biography In fact it is too shortly written and lacking depth that it can be read easily and at one go An inspirational story nonetheless
