    Thank you to the publisher St Martin s Press for providing an advance reader copy via NetGalley.I am an original Trekkie I fondly recall watching repeats of Star Trek with my Mom on a nightly basis that ended at one in the morning I also remember helping my older brother dress up like Spock for a Halloween party, diligently creating the golden Enterprise symbol that I sewed upon his shirt To this day, I still make the iconic symbol with my hand, separating my four long fingers and saying, Live long and Prosper , engendering either a humorous and knowing response, or they just think I m weird Nonetheless, I love biographies and I like William Shatner, so naturally I wanted to read this book.I ve always marveled at the fact that Shatner is the author of so many Star Trek fictional books, and he has written earlier autobiographies Perhaps for that reason, this offering seemed like a fairly quick read, and he doesn t delve too deeply into his experiences on the Star Trek set or his relationships with his fellow cast members The one fact he makes clear is that Leonard Nimoy, the actor who played Mr Spock, was his best friend but for some unk...

    3.5 starsMost people know that William Shatner played Captain James T Kirk in the original Star Trek television series and the movies it inspired Shatner also starred in many other TV series acted in movies and stage plays directed films and television shows did video games and soundtracks made albums wrote books and In fact Shatner has an extraordinary work ethic, exemplified by the fact that he s still taking on new projects at the age of 87 William Shatner as Captain James T KirkShatner s compulsion to have a job was spawned partly from his struggles to put food on the table when he was a young man with a family and no steady income Shatner sometimes found it hard to get acting jobs so he grabbed every opportunity that came his way with almost no regrets An exception might be a movie he made in Esperanto the universal language which was a foreign film in every country in the world By the time the movie was released Shatner had forgotten the language and couldn t understand what the film was about but he worked as hard on it as anything else he s ever done And Shatner s done a lot, because he almost never says no to a job offer.William Shatner in the Esperanto film Incubus I ve read other books Shatner wrote, but this one seems the most personal Shatner acknowledges that many of the things he s done were driven by loneliness, by a desire to be wanted..a feeling he a...

    As a fan of Star Trek, it was interesting to find out about the life of the now 86 year old William Shatner, but somewhat disappointing too as there was so little about his relationship with the cast of the Starship Enterprise and friendship with Leonard Nimoy.

    One thing is for sure though, this man is a hard worker and talented guy.no free rides for him, and it doesn t sound like he s planning to stop anytime soon He has a great passion for living.and taking chances.with many interests including a deep love for dogs, horses and motorcycles.that he still rides.

    From Montreal and married four times, Shatner tries to live in the moment, isn t preachy, but shares thoughts about how he s stayed healthy and lived this long.the only sure thing to count on being change and oh yeah.don t die

    Shatner also shares some sad memories.as a child and adult.of how an alien once saved his life and how he made a great deal on a coffin.

    Another interesting little book from Bill Shatner This one looking at what he has learned throughout is long life.Interesting, entertaining, whimsical, and also though provoking.Highly recommended.

  5. Regina Mastrogiacomo says:

    An absolutely wonderful autobiography from a person I have watched on Television for years It is an uplifting and encouraging view of the world and is right on, at least for me in how I see the world too.I like that he continues to say through the book that this is his opinion and t...

    Hard to believe that William Shatner is now in his mid 80 s Love his style, sense of humor, passion and the ability to reinvent himself He has lived an interesting life and I would love to be able to adopt his philosophy of ...

    Live Long and What I Learned Along the Way is a book that is less autobiographical and about the lesson of life from the great man himself Told with empathy and able to keep his tongue firmly in his cheek but with a message that is inspiring and in depth.Although this is not a straight forward autobiography, it does share aspects of his life through the guidance of lessons learned whilst on his journey of life There are times that the story goes get lost in its own mechanics but overall he just accomplish what he sets out to do I would have liked, on a personal level, a story that was focussed on his life and career but as the book is not design it does deliver on what it promises.There are times that the story meanders but I think that is the joy of the talents of William Shatner He does jump from topic to topic but when one keeps with it, the point does come across This is written like a self help book using his li...

    i like conversational, but even this was too much for me i m glad i listened.or am i, because honestly, this book did not appeal it s definitely a good insight into how depressed and self absorbed he is and yet, kind he is all over the place. it baffles me that he can t see why nimoy stopped talking to him, and while i would like to say it s nice to hear his side of the story, all he did was lament 2 stars instead of 1 bc i didn t hate it, and ...

    I can t say Shatner is the greatest writer, but what he has to say about living well and his career is entertaining and insightful

    With age supposedly comes wisdom I read that a long time ago But I am now deep into my eightiess and I can with some sadness admit that I know very little I have gained only enough wisdom to dismiss the belief that wisdom comes with aging With aging, mostly, comes aches and pains William Shatner is 86 years old He figures between Star Trek and Priceline, he s easily recognized by 4 generations not to mention his award winning Twilight Zone episode This book is in a very Shatner voice, rambling at times, it he does impart wisdom, sadness and joy along with a lot of really great first person insight You can hear his voice and feel his passion.Yes, it is a bit stream of consciousness but when you re 86, that should...
