“The first noteworthy treatment of its subject—and a definitive one at that...Fascinating narrative threads proliferate.” —The New York Times Book Review The most authoritative biography—featuring dozens of rarely seen photographs—of film legend Bruce Lee, who made martial arts a global phenomenon, bridged the divide between Eastern and Western cultures, and smashed long-held stereotypes of Asians and Asian-Americans. Forty-five years after Bruce Lee’s sudden death at age thirty-two, journalist and bestselling author Matthew Polly has written the definitive account of Lee’s life. It’s also one of the only accounts; incredibly, there has never been an authoritative biography of Lee. Following a decade of research that included conducting more than one hundred interviews with Lee’s family, friends, business associates, and even the actress in whose bed Lee died, Polly has constructed a complex, humane portrait of the icon. Polly explores Lee’s early years as a child star in Hong Kong cinema; his actor father’s struggles with opium addiction and how that turned Bruce into a troublemaking teenager who was kicked out of high school and eventually sent to America to shape up; his beginnings as a martial arts teacher, eventually becoming personal instructor to movie stars like James Coburn and Steve McQueen; his struggles as an Asian-American actor in Hollywood and frustration seeing role after role he auditioned for go to a white actors in eye makeup; his eventual triumph as a leading man; his challenges juggling a sky-rocketing career with his duties as a father and husband; and his shocking end that to this day is still shrouded in mystery. Polly breaks down the myths surrounding Bruce Lee and argues that, contrary to popular belief, he was an ambitious actor who was obsessed with the martial arts—not a kung-fu guru who just so happened to make a couple of movies. This is an honest, revealing look at an impressive yet imperfect man whose personal story was even more entertaining and inspiring than any fictional role he played onscreen.

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.

In order to understand Bruce Lee, we must look beyond Bruce Lee to the artist's intricate cultural and historical contexts. This work begins by contextualising Lee, examining his films and martial arts work, and his changing cultural status within different times and places. The text examines Bruce Lee's films and philosophy in relation to the popular culture and cultural politics of the 1960s and 1970s, and it addresses the resurgence of his popularity in Hong Kong and China in the twenty-first century. The study also explores Lee's ongoing legacy and influence in the West, considering his function as a shifting symbol of ethnic politics and the ways in which he continues to inform Hollywood film-fight choreography. Beyond Bruce Lee ultimately argues Lee is best understood in terms of "cultural translation" and that his interventions and importance are ongoing.

This is the second edition of the 1996 biography of martial arts icon Bruce Lee in which the initial controversial theory behind Lee's premature death is soundly discredited. Originally put forth more than 20 years earlier, the author's theory of what caused Bruce Lee's death was recently confirmed by Dr. Michael Hunter in the televised episode on Bruce Lee in the series "Autopsy." This is a hard-hitting biography for readers interested in a full and truthful accounting of Bruce Lee's life and death. In addition to being a close friend and fellow martial artist, the author co-authored "The Bruce Lee Story" (O'Hara Publications, 1988) with Lee's widow, Linda Lee. Noted biographer and close friend of Lee's, Joe Hyams, wrote, "Tom's enlightening information about the death of Bruce Lee finally puts the pieces of the puzzle together-a must-read for all martial artists."
