The first authoritative biography of film legend Bruce Lee, who made martial arts a global phenomenon, bridged the divide between Eastern and Western cultures, and smashed long-held stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans. Forty-five years after Bruce Lee’s sudden death at age 32, journalist and best-selling author Matthew Polly has written the definitive account of Lee’s life. It’s also one of the only accounts; incredibly, there has never been an authoritative biography of Lee.

This is a very interesting and seemingly complete account of the life of Bruce Lee. The writing style is naturally engaging. I couldn't stop listening or talking about it. Not only is this one of the best Bruce Lee books I've ever read, it's one of the best books I've ever read. I appreciate that you learn a lot about the culture and history of the time in which Bruce and his ancestors live. It doesn't overtly glorify or degrade Lee - it feels like a balanced and honest account of his life. I absolutely LOVED this book!

Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when we don't sleep. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

This book is phenomenal. Very insightful. Helps you understand how sleep is the panacea. I'm reconsidering my life and how I analyze public policy. I've been recommending to everyone I know!

  • The Never-Ending Present

In the first biography of the Tragically Hip, Michael Barclay talks to dozens of the band’s peers and friends about not just the Hip’s music, but about the opening bands, the American albatross, the band’s role in Canadian culture, and Gord Downie’s role in reconciliation with Indigenous people. When Downie announced he had terminal cancer and decided to take the Hip on the road one more time, the tour became another Terry Fox moment; this time, Canadians got to witness an embattled hero reach the finish line.

For a book written without any direct input from the band, it is full of in-depth detail. Cleverly structured. Enjoyed it very much from start to finish. only criticism is that each chapter is designed to standalone, so when listening to the whole book, it gets very repetitive. This is definitely a book any fan of the Hip needs to hear! Strombo's reading is the perfect fit too.
