Koenig's very human narrative is full of the kind of insecurities and quirks to which anyone can relate. With wry wit, striking candor, and a true gift for storytelling, Koening takes us on a sometimes bumpy but often hilarious trip through his galaxy. Blind faith and a healthy sense of irony seem to sustain him as he relates a steady stream of anecdotes.
Of course, this amusing memoir also takes us behind the scenes of Star Trek, with fresh perspectives not only on the cast members themselves but also on the development and evolution of the sci-fi legend. Having also enjoyed both critical and popular success on Babylon 5, Koening has repeatedly confirmed his enduring position in science fiction's acting pantheon.

Unlike most biographies, it kept my attention throughout and never bored me.
No, I have not.
Laugh, yes, many times. Very humorous, and my kind of humour to boot.
An interest in Star Trek trivia isn't necessary in order to enjoy this autobiography, but it adds to the enjoyment.
I appreciate this audiobook and Mr. Koenig's performance so much that although I already had a bootleg copy of it from before I joined Audible, I bought it anyway because I wanted the author to get paid for what is really a remarkably interesting and amusing listen.
Hello, I am an avid, when I have time, reader and have been with Audible since 2002. I have a vision problem which makes it hard to read books, so the audible format is a God Send!
Mr. Koenig does a good job presenting his story. It had some twist and turns that gave me an insight on his true self. I was a little disappointed in the story itself. As a long time fan in was a bit surreal to hear that it was just another job. I understand that, but it didn't make any more fun to read.
