9780099779513: The Tao Of Bruce Lee

Just weeks after completing Enter the Dragon, his first vehicle for a worldwide audience, Bruce Lee - the self-proclaimed world's fittest man - died mysteriously at the age of thirty-two. The film has since grossed over $500 million, making it one of the most profitable in the history of cinema, and Lee has acquired almost mythic status.

Lee's was a flawed, complex yet singular talent. He revolutionized the martial arts and forever changed action movie-making. As in The Tao of Muhammad Ali, Davis Miller brilliantly combines biography - the fullest, most unflinching and revelatory to date - with his own coming-of-age autobiography. The result is a unique and compelling book.

Review:

"A martial arts Nick Hornby, Miller is illuminating about the ability to transform oneself no matter what the circumstances" (The Times)

"Easygoing but unflippant, formless yet rigorous. Solid reporting and sumptuous storytelling. Miller's is an American voice attractive to Brits" (Tim Birch The Guardian)

"I loved Davis Miller's The Tao of Bruce Lee, a book about hero worship" (Tony Parsons, author Man and Boy Daily Mail)

"This fantastic second book by Miller runs deeper than an account of the author growing up as a 'karate kid' in the early 1970s. It is equally a study of the nature and role of the hero in popular culture, a poignant and unusual coming-of-age story, and an informative biography of Bruce Lee" (Ted Leventhal Booklist)

"Davis Miller continues to invent a powerful new form of writing" (Richard Martyn Toronto Star)

From the Author:

This is not a traditional biography of Bruce Lee. It is the story of the intersection of his life with mine and of the numerous ways that he has inspired and influenced me. It is also the most intimate portrait of Lee to date and the story of some of what I find meaningful in his life. I am an Everyman in this book. Through my story I hope that readers will come to understand some of the ways that Lee has influenced millions of folks. And that's one of the primary reasons for the title "The Tao of Bruce Lee": Tao is a Chinese word that translates as "way." In the book, my character regards himself as following in the way of Lee. "The Tao of Bruce Lee: a martial arts memoir" is the companion volume to my first book, "The Tao of Muhammad Ali." The two books are the yin and the yang of the same story. Although either book can be enjoyed entirely on its own, the full story and numerous themes are fully revealed only when reading both books.
