Over the last 50 years, moviegoers around the world have spent more than five billion dollars to escape into a world where they can pretend they drive a Bentley, Rolls-Royce, or Aston Martin; a world where they get the chance to save millions of lives; a world where they can make love to the most beautiful women imaginable; a world where martinis are shaken, not stirred. Women want to be with him. Men want to be him. The name is Bond...James Bond.
"James Bond FAQ" by Tom DeMichael (Applause Books, $22.99, February 2012) covers the gadgets, girls, guns, gangsters, and goings-on of everyone's favorite secret agent. Completely up-to-date as to include "Skyfall" (2012), the book focuses primarily on the Bond films, but also includes Ian Fleming's books, composers of Bond music, and unofficial Bond projects, such as TV versions and other films.

Also included are cast lists, movie posters, photos and illustrations seldom seen in print, profiles of producers and directors, synopses, and production stories.
