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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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 *
