"For the first time Patrick Macnee tells all! The behind-the-scenes secrets of the hit TV series The Avengers are laid bare by the man who was John Steed. Lavishly illustrated, with rare and previously unpublished pictures from Macnee's private collection, this is a very personal portrait of the world's best-loved cult action adventure series.

In unflinching detail Macnee reveals the true story behind The Avengers, including his relationships with all four Avengers girls - on and off set. From the earliest episodes with Ian Hendry, via Honor Blackman and her kinky boots, Diana Rigg as Emma Peel, Linda Thorson as Tara King, onto Joanna Lumley and The New Avengers, and even an appearance with Oasis, Macnee witnessed it all.

With contributions by fellow actors, directors, producers and screenwriters, including Sydney Newman, the programme's creator, this is an unique history of all the trials and triumphs of a series as popular today as when it was first screened."
