Description
In February 1952 Ian Fleming began writing about a secret agent, and came up with one of the most successful and enduring heroes in popular fiction, James Bond. But the dangerous world Bond inhabits, with its thrilling chases, high-tech gadgetry, and hair's-breadth escapes, wasn't entirely from Fleming's imagination; his experiences as an intelligence officer in World War II were essential to creating the perfect spy. "Ben Macintyre's skill, in this entertaining mix of history, espionage, biography, and postwar sociology, is to make you see clearly where Ian Fleming's world ended and the fantasy of James Bond began," praised Library Journal. "Everything that makes Bond interesting with relation to the real world, in fact, is explored here."

"Fleming, a journalist like Macintyre, would have approved of Macintyre's fast, witty and informative style, and this is the perfect starting place for anyone wanting to find out more about Bond and his creator."Mail on Sunday
