I picked this up in the US while visiting as it looked fairly comprehensive. Once I got home and actually sat down to read it though I realised I was mistaken. Although there are plenty of nice glossy photos of Bond on and behind the scenes, the writing is of a low standard. Lacking wit, oddly conversational and with very little insight, the articles about the individual movies could have been copied and pasted from Wikipedia. If you're a Bond completist you might get it, but you'll only read once. If you've never read a book about the Bond series, you might like it, but the pedestrian text will probably frustrate.

Bought the book for Dad, who is a great Bond fan - you know the sort, watches the films every time they are on TV even though he has all the DVDs. He thinks it is brilliant and has it on the table by his chair. Full marks.

bought this for my husband for Christmas. He loved it - the fact that it was by Life gave some great pictures, and, even as a bond-o-phile he learned a few new things.
