James Bond: License To Quote - The Quotable 007.
1500 Humorous Quotes about the world's favorite spy
Brilliant title (can hear Connery saying it now 'Bond, James Bond - License to Quote') and a brilliant book covering the fun things said about Bond (films and books, girls and cars). Not seen a Bond book like it! A definite must for Bond fans like me.
I could write more but the best way to describe the book is to give a few examples of the quotations (found on the Amazon book page).
"James Bond was a suave intellectual who could slice through life's difficulties with the ruthless efficiency of Oddjob's hat."
William Grimes in The New York Times (1991)
"I wish he'd get back to the days when Bond head-butted Curt J rgens in the face, blew up Donald Pleasence's volcano and went to bed with Barbara Bach."
Jeremy Clarkson in The Sunday Times (2009)
The only minor drawback is the lack of an index at the back but the book is well layed out with lots of clear chapters so an index is not really missed.
Overall, it is a book that I shall read over and over and have already recommended it to friends and other Bond fans.
