The Bluffer’s Guide to Bond

It’s not what you know, it’s what they think you know, and The Bluffer’s Guides paid homage to the ultimate spy with The Bluffer’s Guide to Bond.


Available from Amazon UK and

With nearly 90 titles published in over 20 languages with more than 5 million copies sold, The Bluffer’s Guides are short, humorous guides with all the facts you need to become an instant “expert”.

Never again confuse SMERSH with SPECTRE, Oddjob with Onatopp, or Plenty O’Toole with Pussy Galore. Bask in the admiration of your fellow James Bond aficionados, pronounce confidently on the finer points of the books, films and the character of the man himself, and hold your own against the most dismissive of doubters.

You can buy The Bluffer’s Guide to Bond from Amazon UK and
