It's no "My Brilliant Career" - but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Bill Shatner shows surprising candour about himself, and his experiences. Anyone looking for an "inside story on Star Trek" is bound to be disappointed - There is very little written about it - but that's not a bad thing. Rather it puts Star Trek in it's proper perspective, as it sits with Bill Shatner's life and times - a busy life well lived.
Particularly in later years, Bill has not been afraid at taking the mickey out of himself - or casting a critical light on himself, either, and this comes across well here.
There are lots of tales, lots of laughs, a few gasps, and the occasional tear. It is, if anything a more serious book than the cover would have you believe.
That said, there is much to recommend to the casual reader - and you don't have to be a trekkie to like it, either!

Shatter is laugh out loud funny. Although the one he wrote titled "Get a Life" is even funnier.

Well done Bill.
Didn't think I would find this so enjoyable. A great read, full of humour.
Very entertaining. Bill is a hard worker and deserves his success.
I always liked him and his quirky persona, or at least the way I've perceived it.
A very full life, and fairly inspiring to live mine to the full.
Will Bill read the reviews? Probably not, but I hope he gets some good ones.

William Shatner's UP TILL NOW is an appropriate summation of his 60 year career in entertainment. Shatner takes the high road throughout; often blaming himself for things gone wrong (marriages and personal relationships), and never responding harshly to the criticisms of others. His self-deprecating and tongue-in-cheek humor extends to several digressions for product placement and blatant commercialism: an acknowledgement that the late-career Bill Shatner is more than a highly successful actor-- he's a money-making institution.

This latest autobiography touches on all the familiar acting resume highlights: a famous Twilight Zone episode, 30 years as the most renowned character in sci-fi history, and lead roles in three other very successful TV series. There's no glossing over the missteps, either. Thus, such box office failures as "White Commanche," "The Horror at 37,000 Feet" and Roger Corman's controversial production, "The Intruder" are also covered. Shatner glories in a nude scene he played opposite an equally undressed Angie Dickenson in a typical Corman turkey, "Big Bad Mama" and unashamedly recalls that his recording of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" is considered by some to be one of the worst cover songs ever made.

Shatner's personal life and family history are examined; he discusses current interests and projects with obvious relish. Often within the pages of UP TILL NOW, Bill Shatner *THE STAR* struts like a proud bantam rooster but does so gracefully and with justification. Fans of his many TV shows and movies will not be disappointed in this book.

William Shatner's other autobiographical works, STAR TREK MEMORIES and GET A LIFE! are equally as entertaining and informative.
