Up Till Now
By William Shatner & David Fisher
Occasionally I like to throw a biography into my reading mix; sometimes it is serious and now and again completely frivolous. Up Until now was a brilliant book who opens up the man who is comfortable with himself.
Things I learn:
- It can take a really long time for being an actor to pay off.
- While he never got that "make you a big star" role, he did manage to become identifiable throughout the world with the jobs he took to pay the rent.
- Some members of Star Trek really don't like him.
- There has been some real sorrow in his life.
- He doesn't take himself too seriously, which is the key to being awesome.
- He is Canadian
What we didn't learn:
- Does he wear a Toupee
The one disagreement I have with his assessment, Shatner and Spader (as Crane & Shore) do not share the closest nonsexual male bond on television - for me that will always be JD and Turk.
