Anybody have reviews on any the recent or past books dealing with the series they would like to share. And this includes anything from Terry O'Neill's book "All About Bond" to that book about The Making of Licence to Kill. I apologize if this has been posted in the past or brought up in different sections. I just thought it would it be interesting to hear people's view on these books and if they are worth hunting down.

The Making of Licence To Kill has to be one of the most comprehensive books on making any of the films. I still have it on my bookshelf, and have fond memories of first acquiring it back in 1989. Sally Hibbin interviews everyone from the film, from Dalton down to his makeup girl, and has detailed articles on the writing, direction, production design, music and post production of the film. It is packed with photos. Definitely worth tracking down, especially if you liked the movie!
