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.
