Above all else, Sir Roger Moore was a proper gentleman's gentleman. In this funny, heartwarming, and absolutely fascinating look back at the James Bond franchise, there is little in the way of dirt to be dished ("I'll simply leave it there," is Sir Roger's approach to two of his leading ladies who were, one assumes, less than agreeable) so don't pick this up expecting a kiss-and-tell expose. What you're getting instead is a guided tour of 007's cinematic journey, given by one of the men who actually packed the Walther PPK himself. There are a lot of smiles to be had as Sir Roger recounts his story, talking about the various players, props, characters, and other Bondanalia that he and his fellow 007s ran into over the years. The book has a lot of great photos, most of them from behind the scenes, and is chock full of anecdotes that could only come from the man himself. This book belongs on the coffee table of every Bond fan, and should be enjoyed by the casual reader as well.
