Product Description

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

A comprehensive chronicle of the best Bond since Connery. -- Empire.November 2002

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.

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.

I chose this book because Pierce Brosnan is one of my favourite actors and in small cities in France it's not so easy to find books,pictures about international stars that's why I ordered it when I saw it.It'a very beautiful book and I can say to his fans to buy this book.

Pierce Brosnan's life is very much like a Greek tragedy in places. You cannot fail to be sad for him when you read this book. Makes you realise that although he has money, very good looks, fame and is obviously a very good father and husband, the luck of the Irish is not always shining on him.

Good read, which left me crying in places, for the young boy he was, to the loss of a wife and daughter to cancer, and the manipulation of television and film companies that conspired to lose him the role of Bond in the 1980's before he won it in the 1990's.
