The perfect complement to the season's new Bond blockbuster, Casino Royale James Bond movies have something for everyone-adventure, action, intrigue, sex, and some of the most exotic hardware ever dreamed up. But can you really build a car that turns into a submarine or an airplane? A bowler hat that, when thrown, can decapitate a statue? A watch that can double as a buzz saw, a Geiger counter, or a TV? Science meets fiction in this lively exploration of Bond gadgets, published to coincide with the release of the next Bond blockbuster. Gresh and Weinberg discuss explosives, communication tools, devious and diabolical weaponry, space lasers, cars, even the martini. Learning what's real, what's not, and what will be is nearly as much fun as watching the movies. Lois H. Gresh (Scottsville, NY), author of 15 books, has been nominated for six national fiction awards. Robert Weinberg (Chicago, IL) is a two-time winner of the World Fantasy Award. They are the authors of The Science of Superheroes and The Science of Supervillains.
