Product description

"No CGI can match what Vic can accomplish" - Steven Spielberg "Vic is The Man" - Pierce Brosnan "Vic Armstrong is, of course, a legend" - Martin Scorsese "This is the best and most original behind-the-scenes book I have read in years, gripping and revealing. Vic Armstrong is modest, humorous and wry - altogether brilliant company." - Roger Lewis, Daily Mail "[A] page-turner... I couldn't put it down! I had a great time reading this book and give it my highest recommendation." - Leonard Maltin "[Vic has] been this unheralded savior of movie magic for decades, and hearing how he makes the incredible credible is a must for any film fan." - Hollywood.com "Armstrong's a fascinating guy and a straight shooter. His book is fantastic." - Ain't It Cool News "The man is a legend in the industry... [A] mind-blowing, must-read biography." - Movies.com "The movie memoir of the year!" - SciFi Mafia "[Vic] talks to you like he's your cool uncle, or the uncle you wished you had, really down to earth, but at the same time you can tell he's got a twinkle in his eye as he's talking..." - Geek Six "A hell of a read." - Film School Rejects "The key to an entertaining autobiography is a combination of good stories to tell and a distinctive life; Armstrong has them both." - Library Journal "Armstrong has done it all." - Empire "A spills'n'thrills ride through a fast-forward life in pictures." - The Times "Armstrong takes us on the spectacular journey of his life that left me wondering who would be brave enough to play him in a movie. What a legacy! What a life! What a book!" - Geeks of Doom -- Think you don't know Vic Armstrong? Wrong! You've seen his work in countless films... He's been a stunt double for James Bond, Indiana Jones and Superman, and he's directed action scenes for three Bond movies, Mission Impossible 3 , Thor , and the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man to name but a few. Counting Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger among his friends, and officially credited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Most Prolific Stuntman, Vic's got a lot of amazing stories to tell, and they're all here in this - the movie memoir of the year!
