James bond biography paperback
An updated paperback version of the biography of the most famous spy of all time - James Bond: The Authorised Biography - originally written by John Pearson in 1973.

The authorised biography of the most famous spy of all time - James Bond.

Like most of the world, John Pearson assumed that James Bond was nothing more than a character in Fleming's highly charged imagination. Then he began to have his doubts. He finally became convinced that James Bond was not only real, but actually alive.

This book must be one of the most extraordinary biographies of our times - the authorised life of a myth, the official biography of James Bond. Here Pearson reveals amazing adventures, situations and incidents only hinted at in Ian Fleming's books. This promises to show a side of Bond never seen before.

About the author:
John Pearson graduated from Peterhouse Cambridge with a double first in History, then worked on the Economist Intelligence Unit and as a BBC trainee producer before being offered a job by Ian Fleming as his assistant on the 'Atticus' column for the Sunday Times.

Pearson is the author of - among others - the only authorised biography of Ian Fleming, as well as bestselling The Profession of Violence. His previous books with Century are One of the Family: The Englishman and the Mafia and The Gamblers. He lives in London and West Sussex.
