This book is surprisingly "engage"-ing. (Hardy har har, sorry, couldn't resist!) Just a Geek features selected entries from Wil Wheaton's blog, chronicling his struggles to define himself apart from being a former Star Trek actor. I was impressed by Wheaton's honesty. Some of his earlier blog entries are less than flattering, and he is very candid in his explanations of why he wrote what he did. There are enough anecdotes about his experiences on the show and later interactions with the Star Trek cast and crew to satisfy "trekkies" as he puts it (didn't Wil get the memo that it is Trekkers now?), but ultimately Wheaton meets his objective of making the reader see him as Wil Wheaton as opposed to Wesley Crusher.
