Sean Connery. Michael Feeney Callan

3.71  ·  Rating details ·  63 ratings  ·  7 reviews
Sean Connery is a study in contradiction. Balding, 62, argumentative and reputedly tight-fisted, he is also regarded as the sexiest man alive. He despises the fame he found in Bond--yet it is the cornerstone of his multi-million-dollar fortune. Born in slum Edinburgh, Connery failed in the Navy, succeeded in amateur soccer, and dreamed of being rich enough to own a piano.

this book was alright. it is a book about Sean Connery and his life before and during acting. i thought that the James bond section was really interesting. i recommend this book to people who have seen the James bond movies.

A história da vida de Sean Connery é digna de livro e isso é incontestável. O problema deste é a tradução mal feita e as frases aleatórias que não explicam, apenas dão informações jogadas.

J'ai lu ce livre avec l'objectif de trouver des principes de développement personnel dans la vie de Connery. Je connaissais très mal la vie de l'acteur, et c'est intéressant d'en savoir plus désormais. Le style est un peu factuel et ne va pas vraiment dans le psychologique ; c'est d'avantage une chronologie de la carrière de Connery. Néanmoins, la biographie fait prendre conscience à quel point il a travaillé pour être à cette place, et à quel point son charisme masculin était présent dès son ...more

This is a good book about Sean Connery. He is a Scotsman who grew up very poor but he dreamed about being an actor. He is well regarded in Europe as the best actor they have produced. He has been in some great roles including James Bond (he was my favorite James Bond) but he has made his mark in other blockbuster movies also and has won an Academy Award.

En juuri harrasta elämäkertoja ja paheksun jossain määrin niiden sijoittamista tietokirjojen joukkoon. Faktio eli tosipohjainen tarina olisi ehken rehellisempi luokitus. Eikä tämä niin häävi ollutkaan, mutta jotaingan sitä vessassa pitää lukea.
