James Bond is more than just a man, more even than a secret agent: James Bond is an eternal truth. To quote the Sunday Times book review of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, "Bond is what every man would like to be, and what every woman would like between her sheets." As Bond's creator Ian Fleming himself said: "The target of my books lay somewhere between the solar plexus and the upper thigh." Bond, James Bond
It is so often the case that discussion about James Bond focuses on everything except James Bond. People yearn to talk of his cars, his gadgets, his girls, his cocktails. All of these are, of course, rich seams for the bluffer to mine. But your most precious stone, your most glittering diamond (one that is indeed forever) has to be the little-tackled -question of Bond's identity. Master this, and your bluffing will sweep all before it. This is a Bluffer's Guide®;. Bluffer's Guides®;, Bluffer's Guide®, Bluffer's®; and Bluff Your Way®; are Registered Trademarks.

A humorous look at Bond

This made me laugh and the author's style matched the narrator's delivery very well. Very entertaining but I was expecting it to be more informative than it actually turned out to be. However, I would listen to this again and would highly recommend it.
