My word is my bond update

As you probably know, i got my copy of My Word Is My Bond yesterday. I only have one thing to say about the book so far; WOW! It is just amazing. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that Roger Moore is funny guy. He delivers the story in a way that makes it a breeze to read.

I have just finished reading chapter eight. That means that i have six or eight chapters left, depending on what you call a chapter. My Word Is My Bond is chopped up in 14 regular chapters and there is two more after that, one of them covers his UNICEF work.

I'll try to keep this short so that i can get back to reading. With the current reading pace I think I will be done tomorrow. As soon as I have closed My Word Is My Bond, I will start writing the review. I hope it will be sometime tomorrow.

OK. What have My Word Is My Bond given me this far? It has given me an insight into one of the greatest actors alive. Not only is he a great actor, he also seems to be the gentleman he claims he is. Roger Moore impresses me in many ways in My Word Is My Bond, but the one thing that impresses me most is that he is so grateful for what he has achieved. He knows that he has been lucky and does not argue with it. In my own opinion I think he deserves to be a bit more egotistical, because not everyone is cut out for acting the he is.

My Word Is My Bond has this far taken me from the early years of Roger Moore's life to "The Persuader" days. The subscript to the first chapter tells a lot about how the book is written in a both funny and partly serious way; "I was an only child. You see, they achieved perfection the first time around."

The next chapter is going to be about the start of his Bond career. I'm really looking forward to it. I think I might just start now.

Check back tomorrow, there might be a review of My Word Is My Bond here...

My Word Is My Bond - Finally here!

My word is my bond is finally out. For us that are huge Roger Moore and James Bond fans, this is a book release that we have been waiting for. Now that I have the book in my hands, I cant wait to get started on it.
Unfortunately I was one of those unlucky ones who had to wait a looong time for my copy of "My Word Is My Bond" to arrive. I know several others have had the same problem, but I dont know what the reason for the delay is...

My expectations for My Word Is My Bond are pretty big. I expect that Roger Moore, who now is in his 80s, has a lot to tell from a long life in the movie business. He is the actor who has played James Bond in most movies, and that in itself should make for some pretty exiting stories. Think about what he could tell about all the behind camera drama that must have happened during the filming.

Roger Moore has publicly stated that My Word Is My Bond will not be a book where he tells a lot of shocking and bad things about fellow actors. He said "If I don't have anything good to say about people, i'd rather not say anything." I think this says a lot about the gentleman Roger Moore. He is a prime example of the English gentleman.

I also expect that My Word Is My Bond will deal with Roger Moore's work for UNICEF. In the later years it has been one of his most important tasks, and he has represented the organization in an exellent manner.

I will post a review of My Word Is My Bond as soon as i have read it, so check back in a couple of days..

My Word Is My Bond

Roger more's biography

Roger Moore is the Bond that has survived the most movies. During the years as an Hollywood actor he has made a name for himself as one of the greatest actor still alive. Now he is finally ready to release his biography. It is called My Word Is My Bond. The Biography will hit the shelves November 4.

Here is what the cover of "My word is my bond" says:

One of the most recognizable big-screen stars of the past half-century, Sir Roger Moore played the role of James Bond longer than any other actor. Beginning with the classic Live and Let Die, running through Moonraker and A View to a Kill, Moore brought his finely honed wit and wry charm to one of Hollywood's most beloved and long-lasting characters. Still, James Bond was only one in a lifetime of roles stretching back to Hollywood's studio era, and encompassing stardom in theater and television on both sides of the Atlantic. From The Saint to Maverick, Warner Brothers to MGM, Hollywood to London to extreme locations the world over, Roger Moore's story is one of the last of the classic Hollywood lives as yet untold.

Until now. From the dying days of the studio system and the birth of television, to the quips of Noël Coward and David Niven, to the bedroom scenes and outtakes from the Bond movies, Moore has seen and heard it all. Nothing is left out---especially the naughty bits. The "special effects" by which James Bond unzipped a dress with a magnet; the spectacular risks in The Spy Who Loved Me's opening scene; and Moore's preparation for facing down villains (he would imagine they all have halitosis): the stories in My Word is My Bond are priceless.

Throughout his career, Moore hobnobbed with the glamorous and powerful, counting Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Seymour, and Cary Grant among his contemporaries and friends. Included are stories of a foul-mouthed Milton Berle, a surly Richard Burton, and a kindhearted Richard Kiel, infamous as Bond enemy Jaws.

As much as it is Moore's own exceptional story, My Word is My Bond is a treasure trove of Hollywood history.

It will sure be an exiting read. Once we have the copy in our hands, we will provide you with a review, so check back soon.
