This collection of anecdotal stories first found fame on-line and this is another of Wil Wheaton's promised collections of those blog postings. Wheaton first found fame as Wesley Crusher, the most annoying teen-ager ever on the bridge of the Enterprise in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation'. He's overcome that and is feeling the love these days as talented writer.

His on-line writings are well-known and all previous sins are forgiven and after all, it was the writers' fault he was so irritating. So as he says in his blog, 'I'm not a dick I just play one on screen.' He's making a habit of it with a delightful turn as evil Wil Wheaton in 'Big Bang Theory'. He should have a moustache (or perhaps an eye patch) and be from a mirror universe but I digress.

This is a fun piece but probably for fans of the blog and Wil's accompanying Twitter feed. It's almost strange to see the ephemeral world of the Internet blog being collected into a hardcopy. It's readable, personal and will make you warm to a man who has re-made himself. No snivelling child-star here, just a simple bloke who enjoys life, his family and is man enough to mourn his cat. Where there's a Wil, there's a way.
