My childhood memory of Patrick Stewart was his role in Star Trek the Next Generation. To me, he was a staunch man who was serious, a good leader, but of course, this was just his roll in the show. After reading this memoir, I've seen a whole other side of Patrick Stewart and come to adore him even more.

The childhood stories portrayed within these pages brings me back to a time before I can remember. It was interesting to read, easy and intriguing. There was heartache and joy. All the things that make a good story. And hidden between those words, a glimpse into the real Patrick Stewart. I no longer see him as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, but as an amazingly deep Shakespearean actors, father, friend and person. 

This book deserves all 5 of the stars I can give. The ease of reading and story telling was wonderful. I found myself lost in the pages. A great read. Would highly recommend.
