No CGI can match what Vic can accomplish  Steven Spielberg Vic is The Man  Pierce BrosnanVic Armstrong is of course a legend  Martin ScorseseThis 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 MailA page turner I couldn't put it down I had a great time reading this book and give it my highest recommendation  Leonard MaltinVic 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   Hollywoodcom Armstrong's a fascinating guy and a straight shooter His book is fantastic   Ain Biographies are a strange breed of books a genre of which I am still finding my way around This title is pretty explanatory however I still wasnt sure what I was letting myself in forThe book is broken down in to short chapters some only a couple of pages long Each chapter represents a part of Vic Armstrong s career and development of the stuntman and coordinator he is today These chapters are usually represented as a film or show that he has had some sort of professional connection to so for example the first film he did high wire work with the first film he used a motorcycle and side car with and so on The book is a fascinating insight in to the world of a film stuntman and he almost always has positive things to say about all those he has worked with or met A rare sentiment in this modern world However the book really can be summed up on one simple statement you could have learnt all of this just as easily as if you met him down the pub over a pint as you would reading his bookEach episode for want of a better description reads like someone in a comfy chair reminiscing about their former adventures This style can either enchant you it does make for easy and enjoyable reading or can infuriate you as it really does not tell you anything beyond a few tales and personal opinions Me I found it refreshing when the world of film and TV seems to be full of egos and reputations you have someone here who has captured the respect of his peers and who s very job means that his success is measured in being mistaken for someone else
