When I'd first reviewed the "How To Live the James Bond Lifestyle" seminar tape, my one regret was that Mr. Kyriazi hadn't turned that entertaining and informative ninety minute tape into a series of lectures. Well, with "The Complete James Bond Lifestyle Seminar," he has, and it is between the covers of one volume.
Unlike most of the 'Think Positive and Grow Rich' genre, Kyriazi is very forthcoming in telling colorfully unrestrained "war stories" from his own experience, which in itself is rich and varied. He was the only movie producer to create a black and white Techniscope film; a costly blunder from which he learned much about moviemaking and marketing his products and himself. Ultimately, he found himself in the cockpit of a Boeing 727, as the sole passenger on a charter flight, being treated like the Very Important Person he truly is. Just like the rest of us.
And that, of course, is the secret: To live the James Bond Lifestyle is to have a rich and varied life, to learn from the mistakes you make, learn from the good experiences as well, and ultimately to live the good life.
Kyriazi is convinced (and therefore convincing) that anyone can "be" James Bond by adopting some rational thinking, planning, a committment to action, and ultimately action itself, into his (or her) life. Kyriazi throws out the cliches of "self-improvement" books and gives the reader truly practical and empirical advice for day to day living.
The central idea of "How would Bond do it?" is easily answered. He'd start by reading Paul Kyriazi's book.
