Publisher's Summary

The Last Dragon is a legendary cult classic from the 1980s, filled with action, humor, and an iconic soundtrack. But when the movie ends, the true story of its unforgettable hero begins. Hear this story in his own voice.

Taimak was only 19 years old when he starred in The Last Dragon. He was already a champion martial artist, a bouncer at New York City's famous clubs, and a budding ladies' man. Over the next 30 years, he had many more adventures. He learned lessons, fell in love, made countless new fans, and discovered the spiritual strength inside himself.

In this book, you'll follow Taimak's inspirational, hilarious, shocking, eye-popping life story. You'll be right there with him as he meets everyone from David Bowie to Mike Tyson, and you'll join him as he experiences triumphs and heartbreaks in the world of Hollywood. You'll even learn more about his relationship with Denise Matthews (Vanity) and his other co-stars from The Last Dragon.

Taimak's life isn't all about Hollywood, though - it's a story that everyone can relate to. You'll hear about his battles with self-doubt, his encounters with racism, and the struggles that he faced as a lonely kid growing up in the big city. You'll meet his quirky parents, his beautiful girlfriends, and the friends and rivals he encountered in the dojos and grindhouse theaters of New York.

By the time you're done listening to Taimak's story, you might just get a glow of your own!

I'm a Last Dragon Fan

I'm a big Last Dragon fan, so I was excited to hear about Tiamak's life. I think of I wasn't such a fan I might not have enjoyed it as much. Energy level was medium due to his monatone style of reading.

You Will Feel The Glow

I've always loved the film 'The Last Dragon'. I've watched this countless of times, and didn't know why I am drawn to watch this film over and over again.

After listening to Bruce Leroy himself, I now have even more appreciation for this awesome film.

Very inspiring story aswell and very insightful.

Great Job Taimak
:)
