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.
Davis Miller is the author of The Tao of Muhammad Ali. His writing has appeared in Rolling Stone, Men's Journal, Esquire, Sport magazine, Sports Illustrated, and numerous other periodicals. His first published story, 'My Dinner With Ali', was voted by the Sunday Magazine Editors Association to be the best essay published in a newspaper magazine in the US in 1989.
