LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' is the first book of humorous quotations solely dedicated to the ever-expanding universe surrounding James Bond. This book does not include quotes from the Bond books or films, but uniquely focuses on the funny comments made about 007. LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' is all over the lighter side of James Bond: his life, books & movies, enemies & lovers, cars, guns & gadgets. LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' turns the tables on the world's favourite spy and turns the spotlight on him. A Who's Who of observers and commentators take dead aim at James Bond: man & myth, super-star & super-spy, legend & legerdemainiac. Comical contributions come from his creators, biographers, critics, imitators, fans and from a selection of media sources including film, TV, websites, newspapers, magazines, and books. The depth and diversity of this source material aptly demonstrates the unrivalled level of recognition and the extraordinary fan-base James Bond has built up since he first appeared in 1953. For well over 50 years, 007 has been at the summit of the best-seller's list, at the top of the cinema box-office and remains at the forefront of the world's consciousness. His iconic image and cultural footprint are legendary: LICENCE TO 'QUOTE' celebrates that legend. This second edition has been published to add quotations - to the original publication (2010) - to take account of ... • the latest Bond film Skyfall (2012), • the 2011 Bond novel Carte Blanche from Jeffery Deaver, plus William Boyd's 2013 novel Solo, and • Bond's spectacular appearance at the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics (2012).
