Just a Geek, by Wil Wheaton

Book 8

If you really need me to tell you, Wil Wheaton is the actor that played Gordie LaChance in the movie Stand By Me and then Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Among other things. More recently, he has made his living as a writer and occasionally worked as an actor. The book Just a Geek is sortuva memoir of that evolution, as seen through his blog.

Wheaton takes his old blog entries and expands on them. Sometimes it is fleshing out a story, sometimes clarifying his meaning and sometimes calling Bullshit on himself. If you are looking for Star Trek gossip, there isn’t a whole lot. But if you enjoy his blog, the book is a nicely done companion piece.
