Editorial Reviews

In this 2008 conversation with celebrated radio host and interviewer Leonard Lopate, William Shatner discusses his memoir Up Till Now. The actor who made a name for himself on Star Trek and Boston Legal clearly enjoys telling stories, and in this 92nd Street Y discussion he tells many. The anecdotes range beyond the interplanetary trials and tribulations of Captain Kirk. Shatner also covers everything from horny gorillas to Esperanto cinema. The Canadian actor and his award-winning interviewer have an easy rapport that can go from clowning around to serious subjects as they discuss the past and present of Shatner's celebrated life through the conduit of Lopate's incisive questions.

Publisher's Summary

Do you know him best as Capt. James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise? As the over-the-top pitchman for Priceline.com? As Denny Crane on Boston Legal, or perhaps T.J. Hooker in the eponymous '80s TV show? However you know him, you haven't really gotten to know William Shatner, one of the most recognizable and durable television actors of the last 50 years. He has written a memoir, Up Till Now: The Autobiography, in which he recounts the ups and downs, the surprises, disappointments, and delights of his career, which shows no signs of slowing down.Find out about his memorable "There's something on the wing!" Twilight Zone episode, his role in history's first all-Esperanto movie, and what the cast of Star Trek really thought of him.

Horrible Audio Quality

The actual interview is a bit scattershot and irreverent. Unfortunately, IMO, the audio quality in this live audience interview is so poor as to detract from the overall quality of the audiobook.

Worth a listen if the price is cheap enough. Otherwise, skip it.

Delightful Interview - Uneven Audio

A fun and pugnacious interview with William Shatner in 2008.

Unfortunately, it was poorly mic'ed and Shatner is often difficult to hear. The interviewer is easy to hear.
