All In On 007

“Mr. Bond, I’ve been expecting you...”

Over seventy years after he first appeared in the Ian Fleming novel Casino Royale and sixty years after the first Sean Connery-led film Dr. No, Bond still resonates. Sure, the suave super spy has changed over the years, showing us more emotional availability and vulnerability and less sexism. But the core of the character remains: Bond is a man who is constantly put to the test — physically, mentally, and emotionally — by increasingly powerful adversaries. His fortitude, stoicism, and resilience in the face of it all, well, a man, boy, or dad, can learn a thing or two about that. Count Fatherly as one such source that takes to heart the many political, sartorial, and life lessons from Bond. Here, in one place is Fatherly’s ongoing coverage of 007’s world, and what his world says about us as men and fathers.
