Roger Moore comes across as a funny and genuinely good man in this autobiography. His self deprecating humor shines through every page, and he seems quite humble for someone who's lived such a glamorous life. The last third of the book is devoted to his work with UNICEF and you get the feeling this is what gave him the most satisfaction in his life.

I'm not a fan of his take on James Bond, but I finished this book with admiration for the man.

Let me start by saying, I am 15, a huge James Bond fan (Old novels, not just new movies) and normally read comics and Graphic Novels. I picked this up because after watching all of the James Bond films again last year, I found Roger was one of my favourites. I started this book thinking it would be all about his career as Bond. It certainly was not! It was so much more and so much better. Aside from his acting career, Roger is a cunning linguist and his style of writing is soothing to say the least. I LOVED this book and would recommend it to anyone!

Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: Roger Moore is the Bond I grew up with, the one I went to the movies to see as a teenager.

Comments: Right from the introduction Mr. Moore states that he will not be 'dirt-dishing' nor telling 'tittle tattle'; he wants to write a fun book filled with memories the way he saw them and the wonderful people he met in his life but he promises that does not mean it will be a 'fluffy book' either. Roger Moore lives up to this statement giving the reader a very enjoyable look inside his life without trashing anyone. He does mention a couple of names that he simply hates with a straightforward reason why, he tells stories leaving the irritating one unnamed and he mentions names and follows the "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all rule" frequently. But Roger Moore is a charming fellow, very easy going, loves a prank or two, and can take a joke on himself as well so his book is filled with people he adored and those who adored him back.

Moore spends a good part of the book on his early life in England; his childhood, days in the army, acting on stage, becoming an actor in British movies. This was all very interesting and it's hard to believe that Roger Moore is really that old to have been in WWII! Even when acting in Britain the famous names start knocking about such as David Niven (a lifetime friend) and Michael Caine. Then he comes to America and makes a name for himself on the small screen starring in Maverick (replacing James Garner as his British cousin), then his famous Simon Templar as The Saint and finally The Persuaders with Tony Curtis. Not until we are closing in on page 200 does Roger Moore get to James Bond and the book has been so interesting up to this point that Bond is not the vital part of the book.
