All that's left to know about everyone's favorite superspy.

Amazon

A favorite of film followers for 50 years, James Bond is the hero loved by everyone: Men want to be just like him, women just want to be with him. Moviegoers around the world have spent more than $5 billion to watch his adventures across the last five decades. What's not to enjoy about such a glorious multitude of gadgets, gals, grand locations, and grandiose schemes hatched by master villains and megalomaniacs?

Now, James Bond FAQ is a book that takes on the iconic cinema franchise that's lasted for so many years. Sometimes serious as SPECTRE, sometimes quirkier than Q, but always informative, this FAQ takes the reader behind-the-scenes, as well as in front of the silver screen. Everyone's included: Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig; little-known facts about TV's first shot at 007, the same Bond story that was made into two different films; whatever happened to those wonderful cars and gizmos that thrilled everyone; plus much more. It's a book for the casual, as well as hardcore, James Bond fan.

James Bond FAQ is filled with biographies, synopses, production stories, and images and illustrations seldom seen in print, leaving little else to be said about the world's favorite secret agent.


Excerpt

Bond. James Bond.

Why, nearly fifty years after that simple response to Sylvia Trench's query of who her casino opponent was in Dr. No, does the film franchise of James Bond continue to raise the pulses of pop culture fans around the world?

Why does a film that opens with the sight of a rifled gun barrel following an unsuspecting man walking in its crosshairs, accompanied by staccato brassy horn stabs, cause followers to perk up like hungry children hearing the bells of an ice cream truck coming down the street?

What is it about the film character of James Bond that tricks us to believe that we are driving along the expressway in a sleek, silver, gadget-filled Aston Martin DB5, instead of the rusting old hulk of our SUV, while dressed in a crisp white formal dinner jacket and black bow tie, instead of khaki shorts and a faded blue golf shirt with a tattered armpit?

Put simply - why is the world so in love with James Bond?

While psychologists may have the correct answers, laymen can only guess what is so captivating about the life and loves of Commander Bond. It might be the time of his birth, the world in which he lives, the brand of his vodka, or an amalgam of all those things.
