Wil Wheaton is best known for his roles in ‘Stand By Me’ and ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ But, as he’s grown up, Wheaton spent less time in front of the camera and in front of a computer.
Wil Wheaton is a blogger.
Yes, a blogger.
Now, before you start thinking ‘why is this even relevant, why should we read a review of a BLOGGER’S Book,’ let me tell you that Wheaton is a skillful writer. He deftly writes essays that sound less like boring ‘this is what I did today’ blog posts and more like things you’d hear on PBS’ ‘This American Life.’
From his demons in regards to his exit from ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ to his day-to-day struggles as a man trying to provide for his family while satisfying his soul.
I recommend this to anyone into pop culture, or anyone into a good read that doesn’t hold any punches.
