Stuntman on eight James Bond films (The Spy Who Loved Me, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, Never Say Never Again, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day and Skyfall); on Indiana Jones, on Star Wars; from doubling for Lee Marvin on The Dirty Dozen back in 1967 to being stunt co-ordinator for ten years for the Top Gear crew and The Grand Tour. Jim takes us behind the scenes on some of the greatest action and adventure films of the last fifty years. He shows us how the stunts were done – and we learn why you need oven glass when you’re set completely on fire; how to barrel-roll a car to stop exactly on the mark; and why cat litter is essential for explosions.

This isn’t just a book of crazy stunts, it’s a look at what makes a stunt performer – the preparation, the fitness, the mental attitude – and how those skills can benefit all of us in our daily lives.
