From the book jacket
William Shatner – Captain James Kirk
The two names are practically synonymous. But what is the true story behind the man who made the character a legend? How did the sudden popularity and fame of the late 60's television series affect the life, family and career of the man-behind-the-myth and how will the much publicized multi-million dollar production of Star Trek: The Motion Picture affect William Shatner's future?
William Shatner, in this very revealing and intimate, no-holds-barred biography tells of his long and arduous road to fame and the intensity of being in the vanguard of so innovative a show as Star Trek.
Filled with personal photos from William Shatner's own collection.
