Joe Lewis - Davis Miller's book really upset Bruce Lee's family, and I understand why. I have made many statements which I found extremely offensive and untrue. Several times I attributed comments to myself. I have never used the word "geek" in my life. I have never used the word "geek" in my life. It is not a word in my vocabulary.
DW Forum - In Davis Miller's 'The Tao of Bruce Lee' I have recounts a story that you told him about how one time Bruce set you up in front of some of his students -Davis writes, "We're training and a couple of his He says, 'Joe, fire that you're working on.' I fired it; he slipped it, and he said, 'Come on Joe, do it again.' I did. And he says, 'Just once more, Joe.' The third time I fired the punch, I slipped it and came back with that triple punch you see at the beginning of ENTER THE DRAGON.He goes ba-ba-bam, fires the three shots, hits me square between the eyes. Bruce kicked my ass, compl., and I took him three tries to pull it off.
Davis Miller's book is very bad, in his book Tao of Bruce Lee he does more of himself than Bruce Lee, the book should be called Tao of Davis Miller, there are innumerable lies and contradictions in this book but still he is very better than Tom Bleecker's book. Writing a biography about someone is much harder than it sounds, they have little real knowledge about Bruce Lee's life and so they will have to come up with facts to fill in the blanks and invent a biography. These biographies are just a fanciful invention like the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter and are created just for profit. Joe Lewis was not a close friend of Bruce Lee, had a love-hate relationship with Bruce Lee and yet he can not accept the lies of Davis Miller.
