Professional Reviews Collecting the Lifestyle of James Bond
Paul Kyriazi specializes in making men of mice, and Bonds out of barely successful fellows. He is the author and lecturer of "How to Live the JAMES BOND Lifestyle", a fascinating book geared toward turning our Walter Mitty-ish fantasies about the world’s greatest super spy into practical advice for conquering our own personal supervillains and winning the girl and saving the day.
Drawing heavily from the world of 007, especially the man’s man portrayal of Bond in the early 60’s films, Kyriazi walks his readers through more than a dozen chapters offering advice on everything from the secret motivations of women to "taking command" of resorts and securing choice hotel accommodations, to gambling in Las Vegas like Bond in Diamonds Are Forever (but on a sensible gaming budget!) and living, thinking, dressing and acting for success, just like our man 007.
Straightforward, whimsical and personable, Kyriazi delivers a cornucopia of tips and tricks for success for men among James Bondian moves, witticisms and choices. He points out the universals of Bond’s appeal, such as a constantly intrigued, bemused expression on a tanned, weathered face with an appetite for life, the delivery of fun, charm and sophistication to any woman he meets, always having the right gadget and the right amount of cash, charm and control to get the job done at hand, and much more. Kyriazi’s Bond is the gentlemanly lover of a good woman in "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service", the connoisseur of fine beverages in "Goldfinger" and the man of the world who knows how to tip his help in "Diamonds Are Forever".
Working now in Japan to train men to live and think for success with his popular program on "Mr. Kiss-Kiss-Bang-Bang", Paul Kyriazi has taken the lifestyle of the world’s greatest fictional hero and honed it to acquiring the confidence and sophistication today’s man needs to survive with integrity in our dog-eat-dog culture. Bond fans will enjoy his materials and reminiscences, and men needing to get organized, get sensible about their budgets and get ahead in life will benefit as well.

For any guy like myself, that searches for the most creative and best way to find and keep a mate, this book is a keeper. With funny blurbs and 'how to's " on everything from dream dates to building a budget...this book instructs the fellow pal to get out and follow his dreams... a must read for anyone in search of that perfect someone, or a great gift for your best friend.
I have just found a resource for every sailor of life. The Crew who have been aboard for more than a short cruise know that I have written often of Paul Kyriazi and his motivational book Bondlife. I most recently have had the pleasure of plundering a copy of The Complete James Bond Lifestyle Seminar on audiotape. What follows is going to be my impression of this incredible audio book.
I never realized the power of logic and simplicity until I listed to The Complete James Bond Lifestyle Seminar on audiotape. Paul Kyriazi takes a theme, the James Bond lifestyle, and breaks it down into its basic component parts and combines scientific study, logic and fun to create a realistic, logical and motivating audio book that is easy to follow and worth its weight in gold sovereigns.
The audio book is recorded professionally and of high quality. Paul reads the work personally and his voice is crisp, and crystal clear. A bond girl reads the chapter titles and this nicely break up the material into simple related sections. The work has a logical progression that you can gently follow. Your mind just follows the logical progression of actions and the 90 minutes fly by.
You will find this audio book one highly motivating postively charged adventure that will have wind in your sails in LESS THAN 90 Minutes!
Sail on... sail on!!!
