The Better Man is 72nd book in the Original Series book series. It is a novel that focus heavily on Dr. McCoy. However, it also tackles a lot of important issues such as genetics, the impact of environment, the definition of family, and friendship. While I have been reading Star Trek books for years, I was struck by the depth that could be found in this novel.
It is evident that Howard Winstein is both an excellent writer and well versed in the Star Trek universe. The writing is excellent, and the characters are extremely developed and true to form. The book looks at more the interactions between characters and less on the technological or historical aspect of Star Trek.
I am excited to see that Winstein has authored more than the nine books that were mentioned in his bio of this book. I will be checking out more of his work.
