STAR TREK 365 :THE ORIGINAL SERIES. Paula M. Block with Terry J. Erdmann. Abrahms; 2010.

This out-sized hardcover covers the original Star Trek series with William Shatner, although even fans may wonder if there's anything left to say about the show. Nevertheless, Block does manage to come up with some new and sometimes amusing observations about these original episodes. The book isn't in chronological order, which is a little strange, but a bigger problem is the unwieldy shape and heaviness of the book, not to mention the too small and light typeface, none of which, of course, is the author's fault. The book, however, is packed with big beautiful photographs, which may be the chief appeal to the Star Trek fanatic.

Verdict: If you just can't get enough about Star Trek. ***.
