Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of "All I Really Need to Know I Learned From Watching 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 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.

In his life he has been a student at Second City in Chicago, a roofer, a mental heath specialist for the states of Connecticut and Illinois, a tobacco picker, a skydiver and a certified hypnotist. His first book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Watching Star Trek®, is an international bestseller. He grew up in Enfield, Connecticut, and still resides on a couch in front of a television in Washington, D.C.
