Here is a sample of the great feedback and reviews that have been written about James Bond: Licence To Quote ...
More Than a Trivial Pursuit Opportunity
"I purchased this largely expecting a collection of "who said what in which film." Instead, the book is a well-researched, carefully organized compendium of not just lines from the 007 movies, but of critiques and pop-culture references from throughout the history of the series, touching on not only the plots, but actors (those assaying Bond in particular), heroines, villains, and more.
If you're a serious 007 fan - especially one in need of a quote or comment on the super secret agent and/or his world that hasn't already been read a hundredfold - this is the book to buy." Poor Man's James Bond "PMJB"on Amazon.com
"A brand new book for the James Bond fan is on store shelves … Available now is James Bond: Licence To Quote: The Quotable Double-0 Seven, compiled and edited by Colin M. Jarman, containing more than 1,500 quotes about the world’s most famous British spy … Licence To Quote is the first quotations book solely dedicated to the ever-expanding universe that surrounds James Bond." Devin Zydel on CommanderBond.net
"Blue Eyed Books has collected 1500 hilarious and provocative quotable quotes on all things 007 ... Quotes are sorted by actor, film, the books, Bond's world, etc. A great read, one of the more entertaining Bond phenomenon books of the past ten years." Matt Sherman on The James Bond List
"James Bond: License To Quote: The Quotable Double-0 Seven ... contains over 1500 quotations about James Bond and his world, though not actually from Bond himself in the films or the books. It was compiled and written by Colin M Jarman. You can learn more about the book by checking out its website or thru Twitter." K1Bond007.com
James Bond hasn't been this much fun since Roger Moore hung up his eyebrows and ditched the safari suit for a clown outfit. James Bond: License To Quote is chock-full of humor and laughs. There are so many fun quotations most of which I had never seen before. Where did they get them all from? Is there a James Bond Quote Bank the size of Fort Knox that stores all these gems?
Here are a couple of the 1500 ... so hard to choose which to share:
"James Bond is little different from comic book characters. 007's Aston-Martin is simply a Batmobile suitable for valet parking.”
“Revenge is a dish best served with bullets, high explosives and giant rolling flameballs. In Quantum Of Solace, James Bond orders the revenge buffet, deluxe.”
Totally brilliant. Read it and weep - with tears of joy. Even Oddjob would take his hat off - in deference - to the guys at Blue Eyed Books. Mission accomplished. BarnesAndNoble.com
"A great idea! Why has no one done it before? Funny quotes about all the main areas of James Bond and some surprising obscure themes like the Real James Bond and 007 compared to other fictional spies like Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer. Plus a very wide catchment of sources from Jerry Seinfeld to Gregory House MD. All in all a great book with hours of fun and interest. 007 out of 007!" TheBookDude on BookFinder4U.com
"Brilliant title (can hear Connery saying it now 'Bond, James Bond - License to Quote') and a brilliant book covering the fun things said about Bond (films and books, girls and cars). Not seen a Bond book like it! A definite must for Bond fans like me.
I could write more but the best way to describe the book is to give a few examples of the quotations (found on the Amazon book page).
"James Bond was a suave intellectual who could slice through life's difficulties with the ruthless efficiency of Oddjob's hat." by William Grimes in The New York Times (1991)
"I wish he'd get back to the days when Bond head-butted Curt Jurgens in the face, blew up Donald Pleasence's volcano and went to bed with Barbara Bach." by Jeremy Clarkson in The Sunday Times (2009)
The only minor drawback is the lack of an index at the back but the book is well laid out with lots of clear chapters so an index is not really missed. Overall, it is a book that I shall read over and over and have already recommended it to friends and other Bond fans." Mal D on ReviewCentre.com
