Overview

The staying power of the world's most dashing secret agent and the evolution of the James Bond franchise are explored in this smart yet nostalgic collection of essays. Leading writers, including Raymond Benson, J.A. Konrath, Raelynn Hillhouse, and John Cox, discuss the ten sexiest Bond girls, the best villains, and the controversy surrounding the latest actor to play James Bond. Topics covered range from the playful-how to build a secret lair and avoid the perennial mistakes made by would-be world dominators-to the thought-provoking, such as Bond's place in the modern world, his Oedipal tendencies and perceived misogyny, and the unerring allure of the charming spy.

Reviews

While little is known at the moment about the specifics of this new James Bond book, one little bit of trivia can be noted. Amazon.com reports that the book is a part of publisher Benbella Book's 'Smart Pop series.' According to the official Smart Pop site, these books are 'a series of anthologies on the best of pop culture. Anthologies that are smart, thoughtful and insightful... but never forget to have fun.' It is probably safe to bet that this 007 book will be somewhere along those lines. - www.commanderbond.net
