    Boldly going where no audio has gone before, Star Trek Memories is William Shatner's own behind-the-scenes look at the legendary '60s television series that continues to spawn movies, books, and series spin-offs 26 years after the last episode aired. Avid Trekkers are sure to be delighted with this first-hand account from Captain Kirk himself.

    Overall

    This was very entertaining, I only wonder what photos I missed from the printed book. I must give credit to Shatner, he included at the end what the cast disliked about him personally, which is not a small part of the story, and that was essential, I think.

    A very entertaining read. Some bad language - be warned.

    In John, Cynthia recalls those times with the loving honesty of an insider, offering new and fascinating insights into the life of John Lennon and the early days of the Beatles. And with the perspective only years can provide, she also tells the compelling story of her marriage to a man who was to become a music legend, a cultural hero, and a defining figure of the twentieth century.

    "Interesting, informative, but weak"
    Overall

    This did provide some interesting insight into John Lennon's character, but it also did shine a strong light upon Cynthia's weaknesses. She was, as it turns out, a very, very weak-willed woman paired with a very intelligent, but lazy, man. He treated her badly, and she let him, and their situation began, of course, under odd circumstances.

    Don't get me wrong, it is an interesting book with some wonderful insights.

    However, it certainly didn't cause me to adore John, and at the same time it did not cause me to sympathise with Cynthia. They each had lives that went (opinion-inserted-here) sordid ways. I wouldn't seek either of them out as a friend. John had some brilliance, no doubt, but he also had a heinous side. I'd want no part of that, and neither (as it turned out) did Cyn.

    A very interesting read! But I don't think it will cause you to grow more fond of either of them.
