Amazing job by a very young writer. I appreciate the interviews with Ian Fleming’s friend, Nick Hague, Del Singh, Graham Johnson or Hy Smith, people that I didn’t knew that they had a connection with the Bond world, however the interviews with Bond Girls, villains, cast and crew are always interesting.
This is an interesting history and analysis of James Bond, mainly the films, but with some coverage of the books also.
I’ve absolutely loved this book! There is so much detail.

This all reflects rather badly on the author Luis Abbou Pianisi for not taking greater interest in his published work. This is a great pity as the basic material he offers is generally quite interesting but the poor presentation is very distracting and disconcerting as one has to decipher just what the writer's intentions in certain jumbled up sentences.
I had thought of returning the book to Amazon because of the aforementioned but decided to keep it. Why? I belong to a creative writing group and I will use it to illustrate the folly of not proof reading and the lack of editing.
For example, on the chapter 'Spectre' and the subsection on Copyright Problems, Mr Pianisi tells us of 'the amazing book, 'The Battle for Bond' by Robert Sellers which I hugely recommend.' But over the page he tells us again that the book is a 'must-read'. Then a little later recommends yet again!
For one glorious example of getting lost in the text, we are told on page 225 that the Halle Berry sequence in 'Die Another Day' where she emerges from the sea had to be repeated several times due to cloudy conditions and she became quite cold. But we are told HE did it all without complaint! To change Miss Berry's sex even while sitting in front of a word processor seems incomprehensible to me!
And so it goes on. I'm still in the process of working my way through the book. But suffice to say its proving more of a challenge then any other work I've ever read over the last seventy years!
Take bow Lightening Source you have produced a volume with more repeats than a BBC Christmas schedule and more errors than the worst tabloid newspaper.
