From the Fiction of Ian Fleming.
A celebration of 007, the hero who is suave, smooth, always shaken and not stirred, this book brings together the best of Ian Fleming's superb novels: the evil villains, exotic locations, fast cars, guns, gadgets and girls, from Honey Rider to Pussy Galore.
Here is Bond on sex ("I'd put you across my knee and spank you"); Bond on drinking ("Champagne and benzedrine! Never again"); Bond on women ("she was a honey"); Bond on Man Talk ("leave men's work to the men"); and Bond on nature ("sting-rays, hammerheads and the saw-teeth of barracuda"). And of course there are the deranged criminal masterminds and their lairs - from Dr No's guano island to Blofeld's Garden of Death - showing Fleming's bizarre, brilliant imagination at its finest.
With spectacular set pieces and classic one-liners, this hugely entertaining anthology shows why Ian Fleming's iconic hero has never been bettered, and is the ultimate book for all Bond fans.
