Think you don’t know Vic Armstrong? Wrong! You’ve seen his work in countless films. From performing the stunts in You Only Live Twice to directing action scenes in Thor, the Academy Award winning British-born Vic Armstrong has got some amazing stories to tell, and they’re all collected here in his autobiography The True Adventures of the World’s Greatest Stuntman [Titan Books, May 2011, £18.99]

Featuring an introduction by Steven Spielberg, and over 900 previously unpublished on-set photos from Vic’s own collection, this hugely entertaining movie memoir features exclusive contributions from many of Vic’s colleagues and friends, including Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Pierce Brosnan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Angelina Jolie and Sir Christopher Lee.

A legend in the movie industry for 40 years, Vic Armstrong is in the Guinness Book of Records as the World’s Most Prolific Stuntman.

He’s currently second unit director on The Amazing Spider-man.

“Be warned, whenever Vic says ‘I’ve got an idea’, something dangerous is about to happen. That’s why we love him.” - Angelina Jolie

“No one does better action sequences than Vic. Some stunt co-ordinators are good with explosion scenes, some are good with car chases or gun battles. But Vic is a master of them all.” - Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Vic was a great guy to work with on the Bond films and a legendary stuntman…He’s the man.” - Pierce Brosnan
