  1. I am sure that there are many reasons to read this book.  I would enjoy reading about the combination of Martial arts and how it shaped Bruce Lees’ world.  Eastern philosophy is very intriguing to someone from the western world.  Reading can help us understand how the different aspects shaped the life of Bruce Lee. When I read a book as far from my normal list like this one, I usually find something will be with me forever.  Thanks for the review and information.
