An excellent introduction to the western world's most famous spy. Most of the western world knows James Bond only as the womanizing, gadget-happy British secret agent with the impossibly adventurous lifestyle, but if that's all you're expecting to find in these pages, author Fleming explodes your preconceptions with a welcome dose of deliciously insightful melancholy right from the first sentence ...
