Publisher's Summary

In you are fan of action-adventure movies with the accent on action-then you no doubt love watching Jackie Chan risk his life to create sensational cinema. As one of the biggest stars to burst into U.S. theaters, Jackie has put America's hottest heroes to shame, wowing audiences with the breathless, death-defying stunts that are the highlight of such movies as Rumble in the Bronx, Supercop, Operation: Condor, and his newest blockbuster Rush Hour. But who really is the boyishly handsome, lightening-fast Charlie Chaplin of martial arts movie making?

I Am Jackie Chan is the fascinating, harrowing, ultimately triumphant story of his life: How the rebellious son of refugees in tumultuous 1950s Hong Kong became the disciplined disciple of a Chinese Opera Master. How the "paradise" that young Jackie so eagerly embraced proved to be, in reality, a ruthlessly competitive place. How the dying art of Chinese opera led Jackie to the movie business-and how he made the leap from stunt man to superstar. Finally, after years of plunging off skyscrapers and living to tell the tale, Jackie Chan proves with this poignant, witty, and often astonishing memoir that it's always been a tale worth telling.

    Story
    "VERY abridged compared to print, still very good."

    I own the paperback version of this book and love it. I'm a big fan of Jackie Chan and it had been a decade or so since I read the book, so I downloaded the audio book as a refresher. The narrator (not Jackie) does a great job and the story is still great, it is just missing a LOT of content from the original book. I still like and recommend it, but if you have time to read a book, a recommend the print version over this abridged audio book.

    Story
    "1999, and perhaps for a younger audience"

    While I enjoyed the book, it's fairly old, and the stories seem (perhaps) aimed at kids. This makes sense, as in those days there was "Jackie Chan Adventures" on TV (in the early 2000's).

    "Good read"

    listened to the store. it was good but felt it is somewhat out of date now. Also more stories about Hollywood would have been more exciting and added to the story
