De james bond saga
Flemish authors, Raymond Rombout and Marc Moret (a friend of ours), has written this book about the world of 007, it is published by Van Halewyck.

James Bond is the greatest metaphor in the film world. Last man on the bridge before the world will end. A guardian of widows and orphans, especially when they show up in bikinis and high heels. A revenge machine in the service of England. Someone for us to worry about? Maybe. Why should James Bond for more than fifty years after the double zero hang out? More than fifty? Yes, as writer Ian Fleming in 1952, his pencil had not wet from writing Casino Royale (1953), Bond in 2006 would not drink dry martini in the movie. And that's not the only question the most famous secret agent in the world evokes.

Why did Fleming write his books in Jamaica? Where did he get his inspiration? Fleming has been zero possible is itself a secret? What makes the book of the movie Bond-Bond? Who was the best Bond actor: Moore, Brosnan or Connery? Will Daniel Craig eventually outpace them? WouldFleming ever have known what he had unleashed? Since Goldfinger, we are bombarded by spies of various alloys. Bond picked what they, what they added?

Why had not the success that each new Bond film has it? Will Casino Royale (2006) cause a new Bondanza?

In short, what is the secret of the Bond saga? How does James still survive? How many actors will portray him? And above all, why do you watch the films? And your children? And their children?

This and many other questions make the James Bond saga deeper. Weapons, gadgets, villains, women, this book presents a comprehensive picture of the only agent that is both on paper and on canvas high tops sheared. It provides an insight into the techniques invented the Alliance consortium to promote its product: teasers and merchandising tie-ins to product placement, techniques that the rest of the film world over meekly.

De James Bond Saga is the ultimate James Bond book in hand. Can not be shorter, like Casino Royale. Was there ever a more closed circle?
