The Moneypenny Diaries… Blood Fever… The Art Of Bond… Here comes yet another James Bond book for release in 2006. The Rough Guide to James Bond by Paul Simpson has been revised and updated to include coverage on Casino Royale. The original edition was released in early 2003.
The small pocket book will be released on 28 September 2006 in the UK and 30 October 2006 in the US. It can be pre-ordered at each Amazon site for £6.99 and $8.46 respectively. The full description follows:
This thoroughly revised second edition is devoted to James Bond, the most famous fictional character of the 20th century. There’s no one quite like 007, the secret agent whose identity is the world’s worst kept secret and who is still the movie hero most men really aspire to be. The guide reviews and rates all the movies, including a brand-new section on Casino Royale. From Connery to Craig , all the movie Bonds are put under the microscope. There are entertaining insider accounts of the most exhilarating (and ridiculous) stunts, along with 007’s greatest quips. Coverage is given of all the novels, the spin-off books, Bond’s rivals and Ian Fleming, the man behind 007. The Rough Guide also takes a look at the lifestyle; the girls, Q’s finest inventions, the cars, the cocktails, the vintage champagnes and the locations. We could tell you more about what’s in this book. But if we did we would have to kill you.
