Wil is a great writer, and the proof is in the way he makes you smile so easily. Like the magic Stephen King wove in "Stand By Me", Wil has mastered the art of being funny while being serious, and being serious while being funny. His memories will show you the good along with the bad, and you'll lose track of the time as he takes you to very special places and times, from a 15-year-old's kiss to the bridge of the Enterprise to playing tag with his kids. And most importantly, this book answers the question, "Did Wesley Crusher really wear padded underwear?"
[This is a true story:]
I read this whole book on the train without even remembering that reading on the train makes me carsick. And you know what? I didn't get sick while reading Wil's book. That's just how engrossing it was. I got to destination and realized my butt was asleep, and said to myself, "Wow, that was the most enjoyable train ride ever." Wil's book put a non-stop smile on my face all the way to the last station, and beyond.
[This one's not worth using, but I thought you'd like it:]
Who is Wil Wheaton, and why is he in this book? I came here expecting to read some book about space dork Wesley Crusher, and instead I got this funny, touching book by this charming cool guy named Wil Wheaton.
I demand my money back because Wil's not the loser he's supposed to be! "Star Trek" was a lie!
[and just a personal note:]
I was having a very tiring day today but once I started reading this book it became a great day. I finished reading it two hours ago and I'm still smiling.
