Editorial Review – William Shatner: A Transformed Man

 

Title: William Shatner: A Transformed Man

Author: Dennis William Hauck

Genre: Biography

This quote-rich biography presents a balanced view of William Shatner as a person, an actor, a husband and father, and a visionary. It features his work with Star Trek and his various cast mates without neglecting his other facets and relationships, and it is designed to be readable and interesting even for non-Trekkies (in fact, Trekkies might be disappointed by the generalized summaries of the movies and the lack of trivia about the show).

But not all traces of magic are gone. With anything that is prohibited, the lure is just all that more enticing. Shine rooms attract customers who gladly pay to experience the intoxicating effects in the form of magic-infused water.
