Terry Gilliam felt that he never got to know Connery well on 'Time Bandits'. His son, Jason Connery, had no interest in subjects like geography, history and mathematics at school. I can relate to that.
Lois Maxwell was only paid £100 a day on 'Dr. No' and 'From Russia with Love' and had to supply her own wardrobe.
'I wasn't convinced that Sean Connery was...a real gentleman...' (Alfred Hitchcock)
'...he can be enormously difficult, he's almost a person of extremes. That middle lane thing...I helped him at a certain point in his career...'
(Dennis Selinger, ICM Agent)
'Impressive as he is, he doesn't give as much as he could...there's not a great generosity of spirit...He knows so much about filmmaking he really should be a director...' (Terry Gilliam, 'Time Bandits')
'We're two quite different people coming out of the same environment, but going different ways...you evolve in an entirely different way...But if you branch out on your own you evolve with...different friends.' (Neil Connery, Sean's brother)
'I'd like to be married to Roger Moore, but have Sean Connery as my lover. He is very moody. I can imagine his sinking to the depths of despair.' (Lois 'Miss Moneypenny' Maxwell)
As to the books contents... while it was indeed a good film Bio (with plenty of gossip on the way, with some waffle) and it did have moments of personal detail, it does not really dig deep into the man himself throughout his life (so far). I felt it skirted various traits that 'maketh the man' and didnt really give us the whole story - hence 3 stars.
