About the Author
SIR ROGER MOORE KBE had an extraordinary career that spanned seven decades, from early television to the golden age of Hollywood and on to international superstardom. Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, he was unforgettable as the title character in The Saint and as Lord Brett Sinclair in The Persuaders! But it was as James Bond where he made his mark, playing the most debonair of the 007s in seven blockbusting films.

One of the things I like about this book is that it’s written without any kind of agenda. There are no sensational stories, no shocking revelations and no character assassinations of co-stars which seem so common nowadays. It’s just a diary, nothing more, nothing less. For example, he does allude to some difficulties and friction with Yaphet Cotto and the crew, he is equally quick to praise the quality of Yaphet’s work. I can imagine that some people will think that Roger is too polite and wish he would say what he really thought but I think it makes quite a pleasant change.
Whilst you get a sense of the glamorous lifestyle Roger led this is reported in a very matter of fact way. There are as many pages devoted to the monotony of being on set and the normal everyday challenges like taking the kids to the dentist (although few of us are able to phone their dentist’s home number in the middle of the night to arrange immediate treatment).
There are some very un-pc parts but you have to remember this was written in the early 1970s. I suspect that, on the whole, the views held by Roger would have been considered rather progressive at the time.
If you have any kind of an interest in Bond/film-making/Roger Moore I can’t imagine how you would fail to enjoy this book. It’s a very pleasant way to while away a few hours.
