As a big fan of William Shatner, it is probably hard for me NOT to like anything the man does, but this book tickled me the most of anything he's ever done. The night I got it in the mail, I went to a restaurant by myself to start reading it. I'm sure the wait staff and other patrons thought I was a nut, because on the second page I literally chortled out loud, and probably smiled and giggled for the entire time I was eating and reading.
First, although it's not too much of a quickie-read as to disappoint, it's an easy read, and a fun one. Shatner regales us with his stories of the things he's done and learned over the last 60 years (He turned 80 this year) and drops the cutest one-liners all through his tales. The tone of the book is his humorous opinion of his reputation for having a huge ego. He makes fun of his ego, his reputation, and all those (his Star Trek co-stars) who still carry a 40 year grudge over the series that made them all famous. With easy-going quips and sheer bafflement over it all, he lets the reader in on the joke, with wonderful hilarity. At the same time, he really does give some rules for having a happy life, and lets us see a few of his disappointments and the appreciation he feels for all he's been given. May he live to be a hundred, and continue to keep his legend going for the next generation.
I can't recommend the book enough for any fan of William Shatner, Star Trek, or Boston Legal. You won't want to put it down once you read the first page.
