"Short but sweet, a highly recommended addtition to anyone's bookshelf - Trekker, Trekkie, geek or otherwise - we can't wait for his next book!" - Paul Hudson, Linux Format, July - Linux Format Top Stuff Award

Product Description

Wil Wheaton--blogger, geek, and Star Trek: The Next Generation's Wesley Crusher--gives us five short-but-true tales of life in the so-called Space Age in Dancing Barefoot. With a true geek's unflinching honesty, Wil examines life, love, the web, and the absurdities of Hollywood in these compelling autobiographical narratives. Based on pieces first published in Wil's hugely popular blog, www.wilwheaton.net, the stories in Dancing Barefoot chronicle a teen TV star's journey to maturity and self-acceptance. Far from the usual celebrity tell-all, Dancing Barefoot is a vivid account of one man's version of that universal story, the search for self. If you've ever fallen in love, wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a Star Trek convention, or thought hard about the meaning of life, you'll find a kindred soul in the pages of Dancing Barefoot. In the process of uncovering his true geeky self, Wil Wheaton speaks to the inner geek in all of us.The stories:Houses in Motion - Memories fill the emptiness left within a childhood home, and saying goodbye brings them to life.Ready Or Not Here I Come - A game of hide-n-seek with the kids works as a time machine, taking Wil on a tour of the hiding and seeking of years gone by.Inferno - Two 15-year-olds pass in the night leaving behind pleasant memories and a perfumed Car Wars Deluxe Edition Box Set.We Close Our Eyes - A few beautiful moments spent dancing in the rain.The Saga of SpongeBob VegasPants - A story of love, hate, laughter and the acceptance of all things Trek.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wesly Crusher, NOT 8 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback
To any readers of his blog, you know what to expect and you won't be disappointed.
To those of you who only know him as Wesley Crusher from Star Trek TNG you are in for a big surprise!.
The stories are from the heart and, if you’re a Star Trek fan, will make you think.
But, ultimately these five true short stories will make you feel good and laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars An utter delight 10 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The easy way in which Wil Wheaton takes you into his life and shares his stories is beguiling. I found myself really connecting with the stories and viewing the author in a whole new light. The tales are honest, interesting and emotional. Above all, they are human.
