Summary

James Bond came into the world in the novel Casino Royale in 1953, and hit the movie screens with Dr. No in 1962. Bond has become one of the best-known personalities, real or imagined, in human history: one out of every four people in the entire world has now seen a Bond movie. With the firing of Pierce Brosnan and the hiring of Daniel Craig as the new screen Bond, fascination with the Bond phenomenon is at an all-time high. 2006 is scheduled to see the twenty-first Bond film, Casino Royale, as well as the "authorized biography" of James Bond.
