Episode Info

Episode Info:

Bruce Lee inspired Ken Gullette and Matthew Polly to become involved in martial arts. Now, Matthew has written the best and most detailed biography of Bruce Lee of all. Ken talks with Matthew about Bruce Lee -- his troubled childhood, the hurdles he faced in America, his true skill level, and how he died. Ken also explores two of Matthew's other outstanding books -- "Tapped Out," which was written after Matthew spent two years training in the MMA, and "American Shaolin," written after Matthew spent two years living and training with Shaolin monks in China. His books are examples of participatory journalism, not just writing about a subject, but diving deep and living it, and always with a sense of humor and a deep love for the martial arts.
