good insider view

This was very entertaining, I only wonder what photos I missed from the printed book. I must give credit to Shatner, he included at the end what the cast disliked about him personally, which is not a small part of the story, and that was essential, I think.

A very entertaining read. Some bad language - be warned.

Very interesting to get Mr. Shatner's view of these events. Even if you are not a fan of his, you learn a lot about Star Trek and filmmaking in general. The only downfall is that it is abridged.

Interesting if you're a Treky no doubt.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If they were interested in the origins of the tv series and the wider world of Star Trek.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wouldn't've changed it.

What does William Shatner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Hearing him reading his own book makes it more real to him as he's speaking his memories.

Could you see Star Trek Memories being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?


Any additional comments?

I'm not a treky but was curious as to how the whole legacy began. Although I doubt I'd listen to it again, I'm glad I heard it once.
