    "Aye Captain!"

    Although he could ditch the Esperanto - a great, entertaining listen....so much so that I listened to it twice on a long business trip. The stories are great and Bill is very, very articulate....about everything!

    Definitely not on impulse power at 80 years old - hope I can be that way if and when that time comes...:)

    Story
    "Narrated as you would expect."
    Would you try another book from William Shatner and Chris Regan and/or William Shatner?

    Probably not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by William Shatner and Chris Regan again?

    Probably not.


    Have you listened to any of William Shatner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - good performance.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There are some classic one-liners but I must get a translation of the 10 minutes worth of rubbish in some random language. That joke could have ended 2 minutes in.


    Any additional comments?

    Passes the time, but doesn't amaze.

    "fun"

    Shatner is fun to listen to. Very self serving but that's always been a part of what makes Shatner tick. Overall this is a light hearted autobiography masquerading as self help book. Should you get this book? Yes (sorry for the spoiler).

    "A Delight!"

    Charming, funny, and chock-full of truly good advice for living and loving life! Bill is, an inspiration - forever young and forever filled with vigor and joy! The audio book is an utterly separate work of entertainment and you will want itt: highly recommended!

    My best,
    Robin

    William Shatner gets better and better with age. He personifies 80 years young! Here's to as many decades as we can get, enjoying him as a performer, writer and person! And let's not forget--Dobie guy!

    Story
    "William Shatner about William Shatner"
    What did you like best about Shatner Rules? What did you like least?

    Any self-respecting fan of Danny Crane will love the way William performs this book. I feel that the book is a bit lacking in substance and I might have found it difficult to read, although listening to the book being performed by the author is a treat.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Insights to his family and how he never took Star Trek seriously to start with I found interesting. I suppose the book didn't really grab me as much as I thought it would, I'm not disappointed I'm just not blown away.


    What about William Shatner’s performance did you like?

    It's all good, he's getting on now and for a man at his age (80) to be so clear in his communication and thought is really something. It's as it should be... even though his story in this book didn't really resonate with me I did want to hear it because of William Shatner's performance. Well done.


    What else would you have wanted to know about William Shatner and Chris Regan ’s life?

    Who the hell is Chris Regan?


    Any additional comments?

    Good listen, scratched an itch I had.

    Just great listening to Shatner talk about... Shatner! Trek, comedy roast, Hooker, family, and everything before after and in between.

    Shatner continues to entertain. He is a fireball at 80, with a great sense of humor. It is an enjoyable journey with Bill.

    Shatner rules!
