“Bray carefully charts the evolution of Connery, working-class lad, Edinburgh scion of a family of Irish tinkers, sailor, body-builder, underwear model, footballer, chorus boy, into the archetype of devil-may-care throwaway masculinity.” (The Guardian)
“Any biography of Sean Connery is better for not being, strictly speaking, a biography. Bray clears that hurdle right out of the gate. Instead of recycling old scandal sheets and puff pieces, he gives us the only book that could matter: a bristling and learned meditation on that other Connery—the one that dreams are made of.” (Louis Bayard - The Washington Post)
