George Takei is a fantastic storyteller and it’s so great to listen to this author tell his own story in the audiobook! Check it out via
This is comparable to Born a Crime by Trevor Noah with references to social injustice; Takei shares his poignant childhood experiences with his parents persevering U.S Internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. He also reveals much of his acting career, including dramatic conflicts with William Shatner on the set making Star Trek.
