At warp speed
Whether you recognize him as Captain Kirk of "Star Trek," Denny Crane from "Boston Legal" or that Priceline guy, chances are you've encountered William Shatner at some point during his 60-year career. In Up Till Now, a memoir that moves at the same frenetic pace as Shatner himself, the actor zooms through his childhood in Montreal, his training as a Shakespearean actor and his early days on television. Shatner has written about "Star Trek" before and doesn't dwell on it here, though there should be enough tidbits to interest Trekkies. With this wacky, self-deprecating and decidedly unique account of his life, Shatner goes where no author has gone before.
