Reviews

That rare celebrity autobiography that's as entertaining as it is self-revealing, a genuinely fun read. "Dallas Morning News" Shatner makes you feel like he's sitting out on the balcony with you, sharing a cigar and waxing nostalgic. "The Oregonian" Shatner's sincerity, honesty, and heightened sense of humor all come across at warp speed in this entertaining memoir. "Publishers Weekly" Shatner has chosen to boldly go where his fans have never seen him go before, and it's an entertaining ride. "The Times (UK)" It is now Bill Shatner's universe--we just live in it. "New York Daily News" The book comes across as a lightly edited transcript of a torrent of dictation. . . . . an old-style entertainer's spiel and delightful 'lite' reading. "Booklist" Shatner's autobiography, "Up Till Now," [is] a humorous, self-deprecating look at his career, featuring some hilarious anecdotes, from his early days as a classical Shakespearean actor, touring in Canadian rep and gaining attention on Broadway, but not necessarily for the right reasons. "The Press and Journal (UK)" He has one of the best-known mugs in show business. "ABCnews.com" It feels like Shatner has always been there, well, as the book makes clear, that's because it's partly true. "The Orange County Register" Why did William Shatner cross the road? Why has he ever? To get to the other side. To see what's out there. To find out stuff and inhale the universe in his singular Shatnerian way. "Associated Press" A 77-year old man writing an autobiography with a title that hints his career has plenty more life in it is a gutsy move. But never count out Mr. Shatner, the greatest pop reinventor since Madonna hit the scene. "The Washington Times" Shatner reveals his foibles and failures with aplomb, exposes his exterior life in all its wild escapades. "The Chronicle Herald (Can.)" William Shatner is a multifaceted cultural icon. "Los Angeles Times "Jacket Copy" blog" Reads like having Shatner sit on the couch next to you, regaling you with endless stories and jokes as he meanders through the ups and downs of his life. "Canada.com" Not only are the characters he's played pop culture icons, but so is Shatner himself ... You never know what to expect. "National Post" It's all in there, including the fights with Star Trek cast members, the third wife's drowning and the subsequent painful inquiry by police, the triumphs, and the personal tragedies. "Parade Magazine""


Praise for "Leonard""Shatner takes readers behind the nonemotive Vulcan visage to reveal the poet, photographer, devoted stage actor, recovering alcoholic, and formidable listener who was his friend. A fond remembrance of Leonard Nimoy by one who knew him like no other." "Kirkus Reviews""""Touching on Nimoy s other pursuits, including his photography, poetry, writing, and directing, Shatner offers up a lovely and moving tribute to his beloved friend." "Booklist" Essentially a traditional biography, but one that is filtered through the prism of its author s friendship with his subject. "The Washington Post""Trekkies will want this for the insider stories from Captain Kirk himself, but fans of candid, emotion-filled biographies will adore this account because it's a treasure trove of information."
