Not as good as Shatner's book but still a must read for all fans of Star Trek. There is a lot of interesting behind the scenes info and numerous scene descriptions in both Star Trek and some of Nimoy's directed films that will have me looking out for things that Nimoy discussed.

We find out that Nimoy was misjudged by the public for his apparent dislike for the Spock role after his I Am Not Spock book.

The only drawbacks to the book were that Nimoy discusses virtually nothing of his life before acting (maybe a short chapter) and an annoying on-going dialogue between himself and the Spock character that appears through-out the book. Other than these two drawbacks, the book is excellent!

About this book

Wiki

Few actors are as inextricably associated with one role as Leonard Nimoy is with Star Trek's Mr. Spock. In 1975, when he was embarking on a post-Star Trek career, Nimoy published an autobiography with the tongue-in-cheek title I Am Not Spock. Twenty years later, despite a fruitful career as a film director (Three Men and a Baby, The Good Mother) and theatrical actor, he here reembraces his legendary half-Vulcan alter ego. Star Trek fans will find this a, well, fascinating history of the "birth" and evolution of Spock?Nimoy explains the original conception of the character and describes his own contributions to the development of Spock's persona. He also provides an insider's account of the production of the TV show and the highly successful series of Star Trek movies, and offers his insights into why the Star Trek phenomenon has maintained such a grip on our cultural imagination. Nimoy's admirers may find this fairly impersonal memoir disappointing; it touches only tangentially on the author's private life. But this is an intelligent and entertaining look at an actor's engagement with a character who "seemed to take on an existence of his own." Photos. Author tour.
