Nice book of great size with little to offer. Sorry I splurged for it. No color pictures, some information, barely ok.

This is Greg Williams' fourth "Bond on Set" book of set photography. I thought his books on DIE ANOTHER DAY, CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE were all very good.

Once more we have a collection of James Bond set images. This collection from SKYFALL is again an essential companion to the 2012 James Bond film, just as his "Bond on Set" books were. Looking back I still feel that "Bond on Set: 007 Filming Die Another Day" evoked visual memories of James Bond somewhere between Ian Fleming's literary vision and those created from the cinematic version. That book was rather thought provoking and delved somewhat deep into Fleming's literary world from a stylistic point of view.

"Bond on Set: Filming Skyfall" seems to evoke a more modern vision of Ian Fleming's feel and atmosphere for James Bond in an artistic format based on the globe trotting exploits in an era of computer based technology.

The photographs are more than plentiful and cover a broad range of locales and sets. The cinematic James Bond has come a long way since DIE ANOTHER DAY and so have we as is evidenced by the visuals found in this book. I get a strong sense of movement viewing this collection of photographs, which are splendid in their own unique way. Once again, this is one of several good books to come out on the Daniel Craig era of James Bond films.

THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I loved all the photos. Contains some minor spoilers about the film, but who cares? The photos are top-notch quality, and the script snippets and captions are fun to read. Overall, AMAZING!!!!

Great photographs and script notations. The only problem is that the more photos you see, the more you want to see. He must have taken 100 photos for every 1 that was published, and I would like to see them all. What is printed is excellent without getting too overloaded with details. Good stuff at a bargain price.

See the movie, I wish there was more on Skyfall. Just like before you will feel like you are part of the group, as they are bringing it together.

I love this movie, so I figure it follows that I would also enjoy the behind the scenes info presented in this handsome hardcover. I was right.

This book is nice and big, and filled to the brim with large candid shots from the making of the film. It’s a pleasure to look through, but one downside is that you can “read” this book very fast as there’s not much text. Captions are nearby for each picture, but they usually just name who you are looking at. I could have used more behind the scenes stories and shenanigans, maybe some interviews, and please hold off on reprinting the shooting script which I can’t stand reading.

Overall though, it’s a very nice volume filled with professional photos that have been lovingly reprinted in the largest possible format for your viewing pleasure. A nice companion book for fans of the film.

The book is wonderful for any Skyfall fan who can't get enough of the movie. I did love the book but in view of the long wait for Bond 24 I now wish the book were twice as long. Of course if it was I would still say the same thing. I think I'll just end up picking up other Bond On Set books. If you loved Skyfall and need more pair this book with the movie commentaries.
