Up Till Now: The Autobiography - William Shatner, David  Fisher A great listen. I've been a Shatner fan as an offshoot of being a Star Trek: TOS fan, but just loved Boston Legal when that was airing. This was written in Shatner's expected jokey style, he's not afraid to take a good swing at his own caricature. He does a good job of it too, in this autobiography, never crossing from self-effacing into maudlin, nor often swinging too far the other way into what I always identify with the young, cocky James T. Kirk. He narrates his own audiobook, which gives it a wonderful conversational feel, as well as really highlighting the more emotional parts, such as the pain and drama surrounding his marriage to his 3rd wife, and her subsequent death. He does tend to loop back on his own story a few times, repeating material he'd already discussed, but overall, nicely done.It's amusing how many roles he has played, that have mirrored his real life - dashing into things without taking what others might deem an appropriate amount of time to think, and getting by on confidence and determination. I'm a bigger fan after having heard this.
