    As an Old Etonian, Ian Fleming speaks with the poise, clarity and thoughtfulness of a man who seems to have seen it all and made sense of it all as well. In creating James Bond, Fleming has left a great legacy behind for literary and movie enthusiasts, the likes of which we will probably never see in quite the same way ever again.
