    Sportsman, womanizer, naval commander, world-traveler, spy, this suave Old Etonian creator of the Cold War's archetypal secret agent was infinitely more complicated and interesting than his major fictional character, Agent 007.

    Chris says: "Great book, unlistenable audiobook"
    "The Man Behind Bond"
    Overall

    Ian Fleming lived in a different world. He saw himself as someone who was always coming in second place, yet he rose to a greater fame than almost any of his many very famous friends. Lycett tells the story of James Bond's creator with tremendous depth and an appreciation for his subject. The idylic world Fleming created for himself - and how that world came crashing down in many ways - is accutely portrayed. If you have loved the world of James Bond, you should discover the story of 007's creator.
