Shatner Rules by William Shatner
Shatner Rules is a book that had sooooo many laugh out loud moments. You can’t say that about too many books but this is certainly one of them. Interspersed in each chapter are Shatner Rules and Fun Factners.
While most people who love Bill Shatner remember him in his defining role as Captain James T Kirk from the original Star Trek series, Shatner has played many, many other roles and many of them on longer running series. Star Trek lasted 3 years.
Shatner has been busy all his life and his philosophy is, “Say Yes” and you will see it opens new windows of opportunity throughout your life.
So…why did I make black bean soup for this book? I ought to have made something with wild boar (yes, there is a chapter about a hunt for boar) but I can’t get game meats here. Black bean soup is something you’d serve a friend, someone you feel comfortable sitting down with and enjoying a home-style meal without regard to sophistication or impressing the guest. Bill Shatner came into our living room through television for many years and I feel like I know him. I’d be proud to share a bowl of soup with Bill.
