The James Bond Archives 007  - Edited by Paul Duncan
"Having read a variety of negative comments in some Bond fan forums concerning the £135 retail price of this book, I firmly believe that had this volume cost twice as much it would still be a bargain. Not one to miss under any circumstances!"

The True Adventures of the World's Greatest Stuntman by Vic Armstrong

JON AUTY reviews the latest important autobiography of a man who put much of the action and excitement into the James Bond movie series.

It is indeed a refreshing change to read an autobiography that actually tells you something about the subject. How many times have we seen the best-seller list filled with ‘z’ list celebrities cashing in on their 15 minutes of fame by talking nonsense for 200 pages? Here we have a man who has lived so much in the last 40 years that 340 pages doesn’t seem like enough... READ THE FULL REVIEW

THE PENFOLD HEART IS BACK!
The Penfold Heart, the golf ball favoured by 007 and made famous in the 1960s, is finally back in action. Penfold Golf is relaunching its HEART™ ball on-line to commemorate the Ian Fleming Centenary 2008.

The golf ball with the heart logo was made famous by the 1964 Bond film, Goldfinger. 007 plays with a Penfold Heart ball in defeating arch-villain Auric Goldfinger. Sean Connery (playing Bond for the third time in the third Bond movie) became a keen golfer as a result of playing golf in the blockbuster film. Co-star, the Penfold Heart, also shot to stardom - orders for the British-made Penfold Heart poured in after the release of Goldfinger.

Penfold's world class history
Started in Birmingham in the 1920s, this British manufacturer of golf balls became world famous for exporting its one and two-piece golf balls. In the 1960s, the world's greatest golfers signed up to play for Penfold: Seve Ballesteros, Gary Player, and Curtis Strange were joined in the 1970s by Peter Oosterhuis, Christy O'Connor, Howard Clark and Nick Faldo.

Anyone who was anyone either played for Penfold or played with a Penfold.

In the most famous golf match in literature, Fleming based the fictitious game between 007 and Goldfinger at a club closely mirroring his beloved Royal St. George's Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent. This summer, The Royal St. George's traced Penfold Golf back to its Birmingham roots to commission Penfold Hearts with the 007 logo on. These were premièred in a charity golf match for The British Heart Foundation, hosted as part of the Ian Fleming Centenary events.

Making the 007 golf balls encouraged Penfold Golf to re-instate the famous Heart golf balls. A limited number of collector's sets of Penfold Hearts are being launched in two waves. The first wave launches this week. A donation will be made to The British Heart Foundation from each of the 500 collector's sets.

The collector's 12-ball sets, costing £50 are only available from www.penfoldgolf.com

"Each set comes in a commemorative slipcase, with a sequentially-numbered card to validate its authenticity as a collector's limited edition," explains Penfold Golf director, William Baird, who has guided the manufacture of golf balls for some 30 years.

"We are anticipating demand from both golfers and Bond fans, as both Penfold and 007 have a quintessentially British appeal, which is why we are launching the collector's sets in two phases," adds Baird.
