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.
