As the LIBRARY JOURNAL recently assessed, CONNERY, SEAN CONNERY incorporates “archival material and never-before-published observations from Connery’s lifelong friends and colleagues, the book explores that duality and the impact both Connery and Bond had on popular culture. He also shares new details of Connery’s life, including his loyalty to his Scottish roots and his seemingly chauvinistic stance, and of his films, with and without Bond. VERDICT: A fresh perspective on Bond and Connery that fans will enjoy.”
