Publisher's summary

In 1959, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, was commissioned by the Sunday Times to explore 14 of the world’s most exotic cities. Fleming saw it all with a thriller writer’s eye. From Hong Kong to Honolulu, New York to Naples, he left the bright main streets for the back alleys. The result is a series of vivid snapshots of a mysterious, vanished world.

Brilliant Mid-Century Snapshot of the World

This is an outstanding performance of what should be considered a classic of Twentieth Century nonfiction. More social commentary than tourist guide, it is truly enjoyable to the last detail. And he spares no details or opinions in his commentary.

What were some of the cities like for Mr. Bond?

Dive into what it was like for James Bond. Travel with Ian Fleming around the world to see the sights, note as with the original Bond stories this book is "of it's time and the authors class and culture" so there is a few comments that are problematic now. But it is an interesting snapshot of time.
