Be Water, My Friend

By Maw Books

This biography is really interesting. Ken Mochizuki does an excellent job taking the young reader (and this mom!) into the life of Bruce Lee. . . . A great afterward . . . tells the rest of Bruce Lee’s story until his untimely death at the age of thirty-two in 1973. Ken Mochizuki stresses that Bruce Lee fought against the Asian stereotypes that were often seen in film by refusing to play parts in movies that stereotyped Asians, stressed education, literacy, and interracial dating and marriage. I highly recommend this biography for fans of Bruce Lee or for those who are ready to discover him for the first time. — Maw Books
