Shatner's performance is really remarkably enjoyable. Unlike many of his other narrations, this one holds my interest again and again with its liveliness alone.
Bill of course!
Yes, I have, and this one is the best of the lot, by far.
Laugh, a LOT.
I listened to the abridged version before buying this one. I bought this unabridged version because I was hoping there would be more of the same excellent material, and I was not disappointed. However, if you already have the abridged copy, you're not missing out on enough to warrant the cost of purchasing this unabridged version. I can't think of anything specific that was left out of the abridged edition. Really, this edition is primarily for those who can't get enough of Bill Shatner...like myself! :)
William Shatner is amazingly open and forthcoming in this book. His self-deprecating humor is engaging. His honest and humble story-telling reminds us that we all have different perspectives and that doesn't make us wrong, it just makes us unique.And his story-telling is engaging. His voice draws you in to his world and makes you an empathetic friend. I felt like I was just hanging out with my new friend at Starbucks.

Listening to William Shatner was like being the audience of a one-man show--interesting, engaging, funny, moving. He didn't read the book--he delivered it with the finesse of a great actor.
There are so many of them it is hard to choose!
William Shatner: bigger than life turns out to be just the right size--full of laughter and heart.
If you want to interest anyone in listening to digital books--this is the one to start with. It has something for everyone--humor, stories about movie stars, personal struggles, family and more. A delightful book and outstanding delivery by William Shatner.
What a fascinating life and so well told by the man himself. Hilariously funny with mini commercials smack in the middle of his thoughts. I laughed out loud many times.
Apart from loving Boston Legal, I haven't had much to do with William Shatner (not a Star Trek fan). I bought this book largely based on the ratings. I'm glad I did because the book is really good. Shatner's had quite a fascinating life and I always find Hollywood insider information really interesting. Shatner is open and honest which makes that book real and believable. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars for the reading is sometimes Shatner almost mumbles and it's hard to make out what he's saying. But I still enjoyed the book.

William Shatner is a joy! He was so candid about his life - good and bad - his feelings and why events turned out as they did. He took credit where he should have and blame when it was his fault. It is funny and refreshing.
It was a little like Rob Lowe's autobiography. Both guys told it like it was and it is amazing how many people they have interacted with and could tell stories about.
Loved his stories about the horses.
Laugh mostly, although it was very touching when he talked about his love for his wife and her suicide.
I would recommend this one highly. Even if you don't know much about Shatner, he will feel like a good friend at the end of the book!
What more can I say...it is Shatner on Shatner by Shatner-it will make you laugh,smile,think and take you on a memorable journey. Don't hesitate-enjoy.
So much fun listening to Bill Shatner during my daily work commute. Great story teller. Made me feel like I was right there I the moment with him. Enjoyed his self deprecating humor with a touch of arrogance...classic! Highly recommend!
I loved the stories and the book. But, trying to listen to Bill read this was painful! One minute it was to loud, the next you couldn't hear anything! I know that's the way he speaks but it's terrible for an audio book!
