This book is very informative as far as the life of Bruce Lee. There is however, some out right lies on page 26 where it talks about the demonstration at The Long Beach International tournament between Bruce and Victor Moore. The demo was that Bruce was to throw three punches at Vic's CHEST, not his face. Victor Moore blocked Bruce's first 2 punches then Bruce threw the last punch at Vic's face and did not even get close enough to hit Victor Moore. Vic then said to Bruce "Now you try to stop mine." Vic threw punch #1 and tapped Bruce in the chest. Vic threw his second punch and tapped Bruce in the chest again. Vic threw his last punch and Bruce blocked it. The footage of the tournament supports this, also witneses like Steve Muhammad, Frank Dux and Victor Moore himself.
