Oh Myyyyyy- George Takei
This was one of my favorite Christmas presents! While my main focus on Star Trek was Spock, I always thought it was a shame that Sulu didn't get to do more. However, there is so much more to George Takei than just his role as Sulu. He has a become a voice for education, working to make sure the world does not forget the injustices done to Japanese-Americans during WWII. He has become an activist for the LGBT community, telling them that it's ok to be who they are and standing up for the rights for all to marry. And he brokered peace between the Star Trek/Star Wars fans by pointing out that feuding with each other left room for the enemy to take over and that we all needed to take down the Twihards!
He has also become one of the greatest sources of my glee with his hysterically funny posts on Facebook. I hear he is also pretty funny on Twitter. This little volume is George's take on how he became an unlikely social media superstar. It's an entertaining read, from a man who is no longer overlooked.
