This was certainly a good listen. The story was very well written and the narration by Takei was excellent. However I felt that the abridging process made the flow of the book less enjoyable and you get the feeling that there is so much left out from the full version. It keeps you wondering what you have missed. I generally make it a point not to buy abridged books but in this case I had no choice.

Really interesting, and not just for fans of Star Trek. Mr. Takei has a great voice, and a really good attitude. The only downfall is that it is abridged.

What's not to like about George: He made a name for himself at a time when Hollywood was racist and in a post-war era when Americans distrusted people of Japanese origin. This book how he quit college, became an actor and rose from being a supporting performer on Star Trek to one of it's main cast.
And then it stops, missing out on many of the more interesting aspects of George's later life: If you've followed him on social networks you might agree that George the campaigner is a much more interesting person than George the actor ever could be. Unfortunately you'll get none of that in this book.
