Live Long And ... by William Shatner Hardbound Book
- LiveLongAndBook 1
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.
I'm through the first chapter and am thoroughly enjoying it. I love his conversational style too. He's adventurous, alright. Geez! (re: trip to Joliet) I was startled, too, by how much we have in common in how he always felt "outside of the group" growing up. Even the detail about looking in warm-looking windows driving by them. I never told anyone I did that. He was writing my mind. Anyway, I'm rambling. It's a great book!
Mr. Shatner always adds just the right amount of humor to his books. I have several and they are all excellent. If you love William Shatner, then you need to read all of his books. He is a GREAT story teller!
