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.

Great book about his time on Star Trek as well as what he's done since then.

Very good read. It was a nice walk thru his time on TNG and how he basically shot himself in the foot by leaving the show. But he's succeed in spite of it. Wil is a very good writer and tells very funny stories that actually transport you as though you were living the memory yourself.
