Amazing & Extraordinary Facts: James Bond is the essential companion for every Bond fan, unearthing a selection of surprising and intriguing facts about the much-loved fictional spy, and the books and films that he has starred in. Discover the origins of the name and character of James Bond, the life and inspirations of Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, the man who brought the novels to the big screen, Cubby Broccoli, and the many actors who have played the Bond character so well over the years; Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and most recently, Daniel Craig. Read about the many Bond villains from Jaws to Goldfinger, and find the names of all of the Bond girls and the actresses who played them, from Ursula Andress as Honey Rider to the more recent Jinx played by Halle Berry. The author explores the many Bond gadgets, firearms and modes of transport, and explains why the Walther PPK was Bond's gun of choice. Every angle of the Bond phenomenon is explored, including the depictions on the small screen, the many spoof versions from the Austin Powers trilogy to Johnny English, Fleming's literary successors who have continued to write Bond novels: Kingsley Amis, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Charlie Higson, Sebastian Faulks and Jeffrey Deaver, the various exotic locations, as well as the creation of the legendary Bond theme song. The adventures of Ian Fleming's fictional spy have touched the lives of everyone in some way, whether through the novels, TV shows or movies, and with the 2012 release of the blockbuster Bond movie, Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig, the Bond phenomenon is creating a whole new generation of fans.
