Maybe a lot of people don' t realise what an amusing writer Sir Roger Moore was. This book is full of amusing anecdotes about stars he knew. Very informative about how the Bond films were made. It's not quite as funny as his other book."Last man standing" which is laugh out loud hilarious, but nevertheless a fantastic read.

Obviously a suave and sophisticated person who comes across as someone who loves the perks that his profession has brought him. A proper luvvy. Unfortunately the stories begin to blend into one another and Rogers true personality outside of the luvvy who enjoys the high life does not evolve. A big disappointment, but a good collection of stories but with little heart.

Fascinating read and its a real page turner. Just goes to show that the TV and movie world isnt all glitter and glamour.

The second hand book was in general good condition with a small stain on the front cover above the letter E in Roger. The pages are in good condition, a few in the middle seemed well read. Overall, a bargain buy from a seller who I would trust to buy from in the future.

I saw this book while browsing for something to read on holiday and realised I was probably the target reader. I grew up with Roger Moore in Ivanhoe, the Saint, Maverick and then The Saint, The Persuaders and, of course James Bond. Roger Moore rights as he speaks, with some tongue in cheek, a slight condescending manner which is slightly self-deprecating. I have always loved his humour, his Englishness and, in this book, his honesty.

I personally loved it and if you, like me, watched him all those years ago on television and followed his rise to being James Bond you will love it too.

Just a wonderful and very well written story of the life of Sir Roger Moore. If you like autobiographies then this one is a most welcoming one, with many wonderful anecdotes and insights, not only to Bond, but in many other areas as well, including Roger Moore's work today.
With his trademark humour, intelligence and warmth this is a highly recommendable work.

I bought his as a gift. The recipient has thoroughly enjoyed it and keeps telling me snippets of information about Roger Moore that he has learned. The price is excellent. The paper the bookis printed on is not the best quality, but for the price one can't expect more.

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT, AS HIS HUMOUR COMES OFF THE PAGE AS FRESHLY AS WHEN SEEN IN TV INTERVIEWS, AND i'VE NEVER HEARD ANYONE IN THE BUSINESS CLAIM THAT HE IS NOT A VERY 'GENUINE' PERSON . ANYONE WHO SNEERS ABOUT HIS ACTING ABILITY HAS ME TO RECKON WITH, AS I CONSIDER THAT HE SUPPLIES A PERFECTLY GOOD PRODUCT, AND AS A FIRST CLASS PROFESSIONAL APPEARS NEVER TO HAVE BEEN TEMPTED TO 'PUNCH ABOVE HIS WEIGHT.' AND THEN, THERE IS HIS WORK FOR UNICEF, WHICH I WAS PLEASED TO SEE THAT HE DOCUMENTED. ALL IN ALL GOOD VALUE - AS A BOOK AND AS A MAN!

I enjoyed the book. I enjoyed RMs style of writing. You can understand, after reading this, why he played Bond the way he did. There are plenty of quips, and little self jaunts at himself - which makes him an even more likeable person. There's even some quite choice language he's quoted some very famous British actors saying - which even raised my eyebrow (sorry!) He recognised his limitations - but played to their strengths - which is why he got away with it. No - he didn't get away with it - he made a Bond interpretation that millions loved. His work with UNICEF is so commendable. A good read; a nice guy.

Roger Moore's autobiography has an almost endless fund of showbiz anecdotes, though he does have a tendency to name drop rather a lot.

Mildly annoying in the Kindle edition that the actual book finishes at around the 80 percent mark, the rest is index and other stuff.
