Publisher Description

Star Trek legend and veteran author William Shatner discusses the meaning of life, finding value in work, and living well whatever your age.

"I have always felt," William Shatner says early in his newest memoir, that "like the great comedian George Burns, who lived to 100, I couldn’t die as long as I was booked." And Shatner is always booked.

Still, a brief health scare in 2016 forced him to take stock. After mulling over the lessons he's learned, the places he's been, and all the miracles and strange occurrences he's witnessed over the course of an enduring career in Hollywood and on the stage, he arrived at one simple rule for living a long and good life: don't die.

It's the only one-size-fits-all advice, Shatner argues in Live Long and..:What I Learned Along the Way, because everyone has a unique life—but, to help us all out, he's more than willing to share stories from his unique life. With a combination of pithy humor and thoughtful vulnerability, Shatner lays out his journey from childhood to peak stardom and all the bumps in the road. (Sometimes the literal road, as in the case of his 2,400-mile motorcycle trip across the country with a bike that didn't function.)

William Shatner is one of our most beloved entertainers, and he intends never to stop entertaining. His funny, provocative, and poignant reflections offer an unforgettable read about a remarkable man.

Very Shatner

“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 be celebrated, not dissed. Highly recommended. 5/5
