9780099779513: The Tao of Bruce Lee

Author of the immensely successful The Tao of Muhammed Ali, Davis Miller now turns his attention to another cult figure: film star and martial arts superhero Bruce Lee. As before, he brilliantly combines biography—in this case, the fullest and most revelatory to date—with coming-of-age autobiography.

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.

From the Inside Flap:

In this companion volume to his critically acclaimed first book, The Tao of Muhammad Ali, Davis Miller turns his attention to a second iconic figure of the twentieth century--and another of Miller's own seminal influences: film star and martial arts legend 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 was a flawed, complex, yet singular talent. He revolutionized the martial arts and forever changed action moviemaking. But what has his legacy truly meant to the fans he left behind? To author Davis Miller, Lee was a profound mentor and a transformative inspiration. As a troubled young man in rural North Carolina, Miller was on a road to nowhere when he first saw Enter the Dragon, an encounter that would lead him on a physical, emotional, and spiritual journey and would change his life.

As in The Tao of Muhammad Ali, Miller brilliantly combines biography--the fullest, most unflinching and revelatory to date--with his own coming-of-age story. The result is a unique and compelling book.
