Review

'A frank but affectionate portrait of the actor-cum-superstar' -- Total Film

'A well-researched, authoritative biography - a must-read' -- Sunday Express

'Revealing' -- Daily Mail

From the Publisher

From Ireland to Hollywood, via Remington Steele, The Long Good Friday and Mrs Doubtfire, Pierce Brosnan is now truly a superstar - he was even voted 'Sexiest Man Alive' by People magazine in November 2001. Forced to turn down the part of James Bond by contractual obligations when he was first offered it in 1986, Brosnan was able to accept the part some years later and has now taken on the mantle of the world's most famous secret agent and made it his own. With his fourth Bond film, Die Another Day, his marriage and the creation of his own production company, Brosnan is riding high in both his professional and his private life, and this revised and updated edition of the critically acclaimed biography reveals all about one of Hollywood's hottest stars. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

It is a great read, don't get me wrong, but the thing I usually enjoy most about reading famous peoples biographies are that they are mostly rags to riches tales. Even if the accounts of their lives in these books are untrue they make refreshing and enjoyable reading. In Pierce Brosnan's biography however it seems that every good thing that happens in his life is followed directly after by two bad things. I am not over exagerating read it for yourself and you'll see. It is a good book but be prepared to cry, it's hard not to. It isn't easy being Bond!

I am not a big reader of books (and from this review you will probably spot that!), but I am an avid James Bond fan, (I have a website dedicated to the movies). Anyway back on topic Pierce is one of my favourite Bonds, and i noticed this book in a book shop, but not being a big reader I thought I wouldn't risk buying it, but borrow it from the library, so i did. After sitting down with the book, i found my self hooked, and realised that i knew nothing about this actor apart from his 007 roles and one other film he had made.
For me as a Bond fan there is lots of inside information which is especially interesting, including how he nearly was Bond earlier but Timothy Dalton ended up doing the role, and how Pierce's first wife was a Bond girl too. Aside form the Bond information, you get all the stuff you would expect in a biography, you learn how harsh his upbringing was, and how complicated his acting career and life have been so far.
I found this book very informative and very interesting and after returning the book to the library I ordered myself a copy, and i recommend you do to.

Really well researched Biography, with plenty of back history & details. Sadly however that tends to get in the way as the constant streams of information the author throws at you ultimately leave you feeling like your reading a copy of Whitakers Almanack. Personally I'm a BIG Bond/Brosnan fan & whilst this book didn't leave me with a negitive opinion of its subject neither did it leave me feeling any more connected to it.
