First, there's no way to ask this without coming off as a troll; those of you who know me know I'm anything but. I feel this is a valid question, especially in light of all the pro-Bruce-Lee sentiments here.
I've read a lot of his material and viewed a number of interviews with him... I'll admit, he talks a great game, was in great shape, and was impressive on camera. I have to wonder, however, if he was the PT Barnum of Martial Arts – if his philosophy was simply "something for everyone" and it was really about establishing his own legend. It's clear that he had an ego the size of a house (this isn't trash-talk: the average celebrity scores rather high on the narcissistic personality inventory), and was very interested in establishing his own legend... So I have to wonder: how much is blown way out of proportion?
