Book Description

4 Feb 2008 Star Trek
When it comes to legendary men of romance, Casanova, Don Juan or James Bond might spring to mind. But there is only one who can honestly boast that his powers of seduction have taken him where no man has gone before -- Captain James T. Kirk. Captain Kirk's status as an Interstellar Stud is proven by his ability to seduce any woman, any situation, in any part of the galaxy. From high society princesses to slave girls and from blood sucking shape-shifters to emotion-deprived androids -- they all swoon, acquiesce, and malfunction from just one kiss. But a single question remains in the minds of millions of Star Trek fans: how on earth does he do it? Whether your mission is To Boldly Go in pursuit of conquest or in search of love, Captain Kirk's Guide to Women will tell you how to Explore Strange New Worlds by getting out of your current surroundings and how to Seek Out New Life and New Civilizations by meeting new people and listening to new ideas. And whether you're a guy who wouldn't be caught dead in the self-help aisle or a girl looking for a gift to give a socially-impaired male friend, this quirky book has the answers.

4.0 out of 5 stars hilarious! ideal for the star trek man! 27 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
this book is very very funny and an ideal gift for the man who likes star trek...but who also likes women. Captain Kirk is well known for his ability to disarm women of all backgrounds, whatever planet they may be from, and this book catalogues his 'achievements' in boldly going where no man has gone before...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Husband Loves It 5 Feb 2008
By LVR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My husband is a Trekkie, and when I saw this, I knew he would dig it. I ended up reading it too, and thought it was funny, even though there are lots of references in there that only my husband understood! I like that the book is not about dating games or pick up lines (although, in the back, there is a section called "Top Pick-Up Lines from the 23rd Century") it's more about what makes guys, and Kirk, so attractive. At the same time, it's not too geeky- what I mean is, it doesn't take itself too seriously.
I was going to give it to my husband for valentine's day, but I couldn't wait!

3.0 out of 5 stars A book that only Trekkers can appreciate 31 May 2008
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The measure of a book of this type is how well it appeals to a broad audience as well as the "niche base" that's going to buy it, regardless, because of its devotion to the subject. No matter how hard author John Rodriquez tries to make an "across the board book" for the masses, "Captain Kirk's Guide to Women" is basically written for those that truly know the difference between a Klingon and a Romulan, the connection between a dilithium crystal and a warp core, or which is a better with whom to have a roll in the hay, an Orion slave girl or the Dohlman of Elas.

Trek fans know that Captain Kirk, as played by William Shatner, was the embodiment of the hero that got the girl, the girl, and the girl. This book, through its various "chapters," provides an entertaining look at the Kirk myth and offers suggestions as how a guy can successfully conquer the woman of his choice. It illustrates what to do and what NOT to do in a male-female relationship.

The text and references to episodes of the original series, along with photographs of the actresses that played Kirk's respective "conquests," are heaven to anyone that ever dreamed of holding a phaser or getting his molecules mixed up in a transporter.

However, for those uninformed in Trek lore, the book offers little to bring them into the fold.

For that, "Captain Kirk's Guide to Women" loses two stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars You gotta be kidding me 24 Feb 2008
By W. Sprague - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I first saw this advertised at Fry's I had to laugh. However, after seeing it here on Amazon getting all these glorious 5-star reviews, and being a Star Trek fanatic for the last 30+ years, I decided to buy it. Mistake. When it arrived, the first thing that struck me was how TINY it is - about the same surface area as a standard paperback novel, and only 60+ pages long. It was like a childrens' book and, in my mind, hideously overpriced. $5.95 absolute max.
The content was fun for 10 minutes or so, but the problem I see is that if you aren't totally obsessed with the minutia of Star Trek you won't understand most of the references and just think it is bad writing (the author tries to incorporate the names of the episodes in his 'prose') and if you ARE fan enough to catch all the references, and you're over the age of 12, it quickly becomes tedious and juvenile. And half the characters discussed don't even have photos! No Helen Noel? You gotta be kidding me.
To be fair, I only read the first half because I got bored and went back to something more intellectual like Uncle John's Bathroom Reader (which are way more fun!)
So - if you must own every bit of Star Trek minutia there is to own, buy this book, accepting the fact that CBS is taking advantage of you big-time, otherwise, spend 20 minutes in the library or wait for it to show up at a garage sale for a quarter. I felt really ripped off.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money! 2 Mar 2008
By Keoki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the first review I've ever written at Amazon. I feel compelled to do so in the hope of saving potential purchasers of this book from wasting their money. As has already been noted, it's teeny. Amazon lists its width as 1/2 inch, but this is inaccurate - 1/3 inch is closer to the truth. Having seen it, I would expect it to cost about half as much as it does. I guess they really have to milk the Star Trek name for all it's worth when it's off the air. As far as the content goes, this book does have some amusing bits here and there, but they are few, and having read it, I know I will never have the desire to do so again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always a conversation starter! 21 May 2008
By Fay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have Captain Kirk's Guide to Women on my coffee table and it ALWAYS prompts smiles and conversation when we have guests over. It's smaller sized so perfect to slip into your book bag or carryon for some on-the-go advice! Seriously, I really had fun with this and and so have many of my friends. And as a woman and a Trek fan I think "Bones" knows what he's talking about--gentlemen: this is GOOD advice. I realize that many Star Trek fans take things Trek very seriously and expect them to meet high standards. In my view, this book meets those standards, but it should be remembered that this is supposed to be FUN! No one has ever put something together quite like this before. I appreciate the tone that is both playful and light, yet clearly written by someone who truly loves Star Trek and is working to make it accessible to everyone. Relax and enjoy--this is delightful!
