    Story
    "The Mid-Life Crisis Manual"

    The premise of this book is pretty simple: while you may never be as cool as James Bond, you can certainly learn how to do the things he does. "If Bond can do it, you can too." To this end, the author has assembled this instructional dossier of how you can find your inner 007. Or as your significant other might call it, your how-to guide for coping with a mid-life crisis.

    The author is a podcaster and blogger, and these essays are mined straight from his online content. It's good information for those looking to learn more about the basics on how to get started. Skiing, mixing drinks, flying an aircraft, bungee jumping... these are but some of the topics found here, and the author promises more books in this series.

    For this audiobook version, the downside is that the author is a podcaster. While he may be better at vocal delivery in free form, here he's clearly reading his book, and it comes off a bit mechanical. It's not bad, but it could be better. It could be a lot worse too, so don't let that stop you from diving in and getting interested in the idea of learning something new.

    "A How-To Book on some fascinating subjects"

    The book was not as good as i expected in some respects, and better in others. I expected a more in depth look at the character behind James Bond. I got a how-to-do on several of 007's adventures including bungie jumping and horseback riding. I very entertaining listen.

    "Nice idea but basic implementation."
    What did you like best about Being James Bond: Volume One? What did you like least?

    The premise, it's a great idea not carried out with enough flair.


    Would you recommend Being James Bond: Volume One to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, too much like a podcast at this point. He may get more interesting as he goes into other topics n the future..
