5.0 out of 5 stars Turning 007 into a real life adventure. January 28, 2012
This book covers a lot of James Bond-type activities, written by a guy who's really out there doing it. His description of bungee jumping off of the GoldenEye dam in Switzerland made me feel like I was there. He actually did it. I actually won't get close to that dam, not even to watch. I liked the chapters on flying and poker especially. I'll be looking forward to the second volume of this. It definitely got me into the mood of getting out there into the adventure, dam excluded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like buying 4 "Dummies Books" June 9, 2011
By John
I like this book. I like the Bond books and movies, and I like the overall mentality of both the books and movies and of this book, that life is for living, and just because you become an adult, you don't stop being a bit of a kid and having fun. The book explains how to play various card games, and all about alcohol, which I really appreciate. For instance the differences between the various cocktails, and what is whiskey and what is bourbon, etc.

The one thing I miss is guns and martial arts, but the author explains that that will come in later volumes. As will languages.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Meets the "Goldeneye" January 17, 2013
By Bee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Being James Bond" is so much more than a "how-to" book. It's a treasure trove of Bond trivia, candid memoirs, and really great pointers you can actually implement in your life! Clearly, Joseph Darlington is a genuine James Bond aficionado, but he's also an excellent coach who will inspire and guide you along the way. =)

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, the author totally misses the point. October 15, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was very disappointing. It tells you to "be James Bond" by providing cursory chapters on how to play poker, how to ski, how to fly an airplane, how to bungee jump, etc. Never mind that you can't learn to fly an airplane from 25 pages in a paperback, or ski, or ride a horse, the author totally misses the point.
This book should not be about the technicalities of whatever discipline you choose to undertake, it should about the attitude, the class, and the strength of will that "Being James Bond" involves. Skip this one.
