In the 1970s Bruce Lee emerged as the world's greatest fighting star - an accolade he has kept ever since. A star first in Hong Kong and then in Hollywood, he broke racial stereotypes and became the highest-paid movie star of his day. His controversial death, at the age of 32 when he was at the height of his powers, has given him a James-Dean style enduring appeal.In Fighting Spirit Bruce Thomas has written a complete account not only of Lee's life, but of the fighting philosophy he developed (jeek kune do) which made him the greatest exponent of martial arts in modern times. In this updated edition he reassesses Lee's skills and explores the increasing influences of his insights. He also compares Bruce Lee with that other great fighting spirit, Muhammad Ali, by asking: what would have happened if the two men had ever met in combat? Insightful and authoritative, Bruce Lee - Fighting Spirit is the extraordinary story of a man whose achievements have never been surpassed.
