Relying on uncanny instincts and a seriocomic approach, this first-time author strikes very close to home as he cleverly illustrates how we can improve and better understand our lives: apply the morals and lessons portrayed in that American icon known as Star TrekR. Using a hilarious first-person narrative, Marinaccio takes dozens of day-to-day situations and shows how we may glean from this 1960s space opera a more intuitive, aggressive, and successful approach to dealing with them. Citing many examples, including relationships, job satisfaction and management, family, peace, war, love, hate, life, death, and the overall nature of humanity, Marinaccio explains how “every situation you will face in life has already been faced by the crew of the Starship Enterprise.” While obsessive Star Trek fans might be distracted by minute errors in trivia, the author provides a fast, enjoyable, and inspirational read. Well recommended for all public libraries and a strong addition to self-help collections.
