Re: So, Shatner's Written a Lot of Books...

I think he was the driving force behind all of the books and had a few people help him do the actual writing/typing into a word processor, compiling the notes and recordings, etc.

Little known fact, William Shatner has been the driving force behind every book printed in the Western hemisphere since 1973. Don't believe me ...

... just ask him.

For his fiction, I believe he dictates detailed outlines into a tape recorder and has his ghost writers flesh out the prose. No idea for his non-fiction. Harlan Ellison has suggested at Shatner's role in those was pretty minor, but that's probably (at least in part) sour grapes over Shatner's poor treatment of him in his Star Trek Memories book.

^^^ Yeah, Ellison's assessments of Shatner's writing prowess definitely don't seem to be without bias in that context.
