This program is read by William Shatner.

Star Trek legend and veteran author William Shatner discusses the meaning of life, finding value in work, and living well whatever your age in this fascinating audiobook.

"I have always felt," William Shatner says early in his newest memoir, that "like the great comedian George Burns, who lived to 100, I couldn't die as long as I was booked." And Shatner is always booked.

Still, a brief health scare in 2016 forced him to take stock. After mulling over the lessons he's learned, the places he's been, and all the miracles and strange occurrences he's witnessed over the course of an enduring career in Hollywood and on the stage, he arrived at one simple rule for living a long and good life: don't die.

It's the only one-size-fits-all advice, Shatner argues in Live Long and..: What I Learned Along the Way, because everyone has a unique life--but, to help us all out, he's more than willing to share stories from his unique life. With a combination of pithy humor and thoughtful vulnerability, Shatner lays out his journey from childhood to peak stardom and all the bumps in the road. (Sometimes the literal road, as in the case of his 2,400-mile motorcycle trip across the country with a bike that didn't function.)

William Shatner is one of our most beloved entertainers, and he intends never to stop entertaining. His funny, provocative, and poignant reflections offer an unforgettable audiobook about a remarkable man.

By far the most honest...

By far the most honestly written of William Shatner's autobiographies. Having written many books over his lifetime, and having read most of them, usually they are punctuated by a fair amount of humor and ego. This book was not. It truly is a discussion of William Shatner's philosophies about life and about change. To me, his most important point is "Say yes to life". He also told several painful stories, including his deep remorse at not knowing why Leonard Nimoy shut him out of his life at the end. An honest book with some wisdom found over his lifetime in it.

While not fully a 5 st...

While not fully a 5 star, this book deserves more than 4 stars. I read a digital copy from Netgalley which may not have been the final copy. There could have been a bit more editing as there were a few repetitious sections, but overall this book left me feeling satisfied. I especially enjoyed the first few chapters. The final chapter, with thoughts on death, could have left me feeling sad but Mr. Shatner managed to bring me back up before the book was over. This has autobiographical elements but it is more pondering and musing on life, his journey and changing points of view. His writing style is informal and entertaining. Bill Shatner has struggled through life the same as most people. At times he has been in the spotlight, at times his life has been under scrutiny. He admits that in over eight decades, he has changed, not only physically but philosophically as well. He shares experiences and anecdotes from his life to illustrate the points each chapter is making. He is open about his own shortcomings and feelings of loneliness. This book will make you smile and it will make you contemplate, hopefully examining your own thoughts and viewpoints. I hope this is not his last book.

Road trip! 2,500-mile ...

Road trip! 2,500-mile round trip taking my daughter to college and driving back alone calls for a whole lot of audiobooks. (5 of 7) Shatner waxes philosophical about life and death at 87. I found nothing real deep or profound here as he bandies about advice and old adages that wouldn't be out of place in Polonius' speech in Hamlet. I probably would have given this two stars in book form, but I'm just a sucker for Shatner's voice, and the audiobook was good, calming company during a stressfully rainy portion of my drive.
