The Autobiography of James T. Kirk

Titan Books have announced a new "non-fiction" book: The Autobiography of James T. Kirk, which has the oh so modest subtitle, The Story of Starfleet's Greatest Captain! Despite the good Captain's name being on the cover, the book will actually be ghost written by David Goodman (author of Federation: The First 150 Years). released the cover, and this blurb:
"Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship because while you're there, you can make a difference. "—James T. Kirk, 2371

The Autobiography of James T. Kirk chronicles the greatest Starfleet captain's life (2233–2371), in his own words. From his boyhood on an Iowa farm, his youth spent on Tarsus IV, his time in the Starfleet Academy, his meteoric raise through the ranks of Starfleet, and his illustrious career at the helm of the Enterprise, this in-world memoir uncovers Captain Kirk in a way Star Trek fans have never seen.

Kirk's singular voice rings throughout the text, giving insight into his convictions, his bravery, and his commitment to the life—in all forms—throughout this Galaxy and beyond. Packaged in a handsome hardcover format, with a center section of photographs, sketches, and original illustrations, this in-world biography will serve as a profile of courage and celebration of a beloved Star Trek hero.
The hardcover book will be out next September.
