From the bestselling author of All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Star Trek...
Has anyone ever said you watch too much TV? That there is nothing of value to be learned from sitting in front of the television set all day long? Couch potatoes of the world, take heart. The book you now hold is your vindication.
In his previous bestseller, All I Really Need to Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek, armchair philosopher Dave Marinaccio took readers on a lighthearted and thought-provoking tour of the human condition, mapped across the adventures of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. 'Bones' McCoy and the rest of the crew of the original Starship Enterprise. Now, with All the Other Things I Really Need to Know I Learned from Watching Star Trek: The Next Generation, he offers new observations on life's everyday challenges, inspired by the Emmy Award-winning science fiction series.
Through engaging anecdotes from his own life, and calling on his near encyclopedic memory of events in the lives of Captain Picard, Riker, Data, Worf and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise-D, Dave demonstrates how the universal appeal and commonsense wisdom of Star Trek: The Next Generation (as well as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager) can help to shape a positive and humorous outlook on life. Often witty, sometimes irreverent, always entertaining, All the Other Things I Really Need to Know I Learned from Watching Star Trek: The Next Generation is one self-described couch potato's insightful look at life through Trek-colored glasses.
