Summary

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 Might Have 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.

Review Quotes

“[A] frank and witty memoir…Shatner delivers sage advice on romance, wealth, and his prolific career, and his honesty will resonate with readers (he was so broke at one point that ‘when Star Trek was canceled, I was Captain Kirk, though I couldn’t cash a $15 check’). At eighty-seven, Shatner movingly reflects on his long life as a gifted, troubled, hard-working entertainer.”

Publishers Weekly

“It is now Bill Shatner’s universe—we just live in it.”
