He started out as a horseman, but took on stunt work to help fund his racing. His first role was one of the ninja's in You Only Live Twice. He's been on almost every Bond movie since, not to mention being Indiana Jone's stunt double (the likeness is uncanny, it even fooled Ford's kid). Now he's a very in demand second unit director and stunt coordinator. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and if you're a movie buff I'm betting you will too. Very, very entertaining.
