"Roger Moore was always my favorite Bond. James Bond could handle a weapon, knew how to fight and always got the girl-he was the ultimate man's man! Brad and Mike excellently lay out the origins of Bond and how the character has evolved over the years. I, for one, can most certainly dig that!"

--Booker T., author of My Rise to Wrestling Royalty

--Peter Rosenberg, Hot97 & ESPN

"James Bond is one of the greatest movie characters of all time, and Brad Gilmore and Mike Kalinowski do an incredible job of celebrating why 007 has left such an indelible mark on pop culture, regardless of the actor playing him. From the villains, to the drinks and the gadgets, this will make you love the Bond franchise even more!"

--Chris Van Vliet, four-time Emmy-Award-winning TV host
