More About the Author

Wil Wheaton's successful acting career began in 1986 with acclaimed roles in Stand By Me and Toy Soldiers. He continued to build his resume through his teen years as series regular 'Wesley Crusher' on Star Trek: The Next Generation and opposite Robin Williams in Flubber. But Wil is much more than just an actor; he's an author, blogger, voice actor, widely-followed Twitter user, and a champion of geek culture.

Wil currently splits his time between acting and writing. In 2010, he joined the cast of Eureka as Doctor Isaac Parrish, and recurs as Sheldon Cooper's nemesis, Evil Wil Wheaton, on The Big Bang Theory. He's published three acclaimed books: Just A Geek, Dancing Barefoot, and The Happiest Days of Our Lives. His latest books are Sunken Treasure, The Day After and Other Stories, and Memories of the Future, Volume One. All of his books grew out of Wil's immensely popular, award-winning weblog, which he created at WIL WHEATON dot NET and currently maintains at WIL WHEATON dot NET: in Exile.

I'd heard Wil read one story from this book at a convention. That one story was so full of joy and reminded me so much of what it was like to be a kid that I had to pick up his book. Everything he writes is so full of life and energy and happiness, even in the sad parts. REAL life. It's an absolute joy to read. I had to read everything else of his, too. I rarely read anything more than once, but I keep coming back to it. If you can get your hands on a copy, DO IT! I know it's hard, but if there aren't any in your price range, try asking your library to have a copy shipped. It's worth it.

Love it, good read, wish I could add more to what has already been said so well by others. I didn't think I would read a book like this(e.g. memoirs of stars)but having been a re-newed STTNG fan I came across what former stars where doing and it lead me to this one by Wheaton. Again, this is a good read a time capsule of a certain generation, one that spawned a lot of creative people of the tech age.

Wait? It's over? Already? This was way too short. I blinked and it was over. The writing was good, perhaps some of Wil Wheaton's best but I'd really like to see him branch out into something that doesn't come off like a blog post for the week. Still, this solidly puts Wil Wheaton on my list of authors to look out for.
