Format: Hardcover
If I mention the name Leonard Nimoy the first thing to probably pass through your mind is the inimitable Mr Spock, the archetypal Vulcan, science officer and close friend of Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise. After reading this book, you realise that Nimoy is more than the eponymous Spock, but a highly trained and experienced actor with a unique insight into the background workings of the Star Trek franchise.

This book is an apology to his previous work "I am not Spock", which was a reaction to the automatic association he had with the Vulcan. Twenty years later, a little wiser and more compassionate to his Star Trek fans, Nimoy has come to embrace his alter-ego as a construction of his own internal landscape and Star Trek's scriptwriters.

His book describes the relationships he had with his co-stars, Gene Roddenberry, the movie directors, the Star Trek community and throws light on the mechanics and negotiations that precede the making of a Star Trek movie. Surprisingly, there's also a lot about his stage appearances and his pre-StarTrek movie career.

More than a book about Spock, his incarnation and personality, it's a book about an actor's craft and dedication and the twists and turns of a successful movie career. Nimoy describes his shift in gear from being in front of the camera to being behind one, as director, with all the difficulties and management it entails.

I Am Spock has given me a new appreciation for an internationally recognised actor, but also a family-man, and a person of depth, wisdom and compassion.

This may be the best biography I've ever read!! I'm huge trekkie and I loved mr. Nimoy's portraial of Spock before, but reading this and seeing how much of himself he put in him and the little backstage details spiced with his marvelous sence of humor just gave me a whole new perspective. The stories of mr. Shatner's pranks and the banter with Spock that he has just made me laugh so hard. I love this book and everybody should read it IMO.

Format: Paperback
Leonard Nimoy is by far the best actor, plus spock was the best character from the star trek film/series he and captain kirk were by far the best partnership in the history of sci-fi, it's like Bert and Ernie, Morcambe and wise, one without the other it does not work. it's like when I seen leonard nimoy in a film called "Invasion of the body Snatchers(1978)", I half expected William shatter to turn up and help with the alien invasion, plus I just loved the respect both characters and actors had for each other.

Its a shame he died but in my heart he never will, all I have to do is put a film or episode of star trek on, that's the great thing about being a film legend, in away they never die, I still watch Bob Hoskins films and Rik mayall in bottom, and its as if they have never gone, I have read this book and its a must.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Nov. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a review of the original paperback edition, published in 1996. I do not know if there has been a later updated edition. Nimoy takes his story up to the `next Generation' episode `Unification' and his turning down of a cameo role in the movie `Generations.'

Nimoy concedes that his previous autobiographical volume - `I Am Not Spock' (1975) - was a mistake: "My timing and choice of title couldn't have been worse." There are eighteen chapters in this affirmatively-titled sequel. The book is illustrated with some interesting black and white photographs that portray Nimoy's acting and directing career over the years.

Nimoy sees links between Spock's character and his own childhood and formative acting career, but there is little detail. By chapter three we are already into season one of `Star Trek'. Nimoy had problems maintaining the dividing line between the character he was playing and the real life Nimoy was living: "Dwelling inside Spock's head became a pressure cooker." Later Nimoy says Spock's character "probably" took over his own when his father died. Nimoy's close relationship to Spock is made manifest throughout the book by presenting the reader with imaginary conversations between himself and his most famous character.

Nimoy relates how Spock was conceived and developed by him, Roddenberry, and the writers. He relates the disagreements he had with the show's producers, and admits to not having a warm relationship with Roddenberry, as well as the competitive spirit that existed with co-star William Shatner. He says he would have found it hard to return for a fourth season had one been shot.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book was much longer than the last (I am not Spock) but that just meant it was more fun to read! It contained a few extracts from the last book, especially in the first few chapters but I assume that that is in part because of its autobiographical nature. It's exceedingly difficult to describe two youths when you've only had one!

Nimoy is as good a writer as he is an actor. "I am Spock" is witty and funny and simply an adventure to read. Do be warned though- this book contains numerous spoilers from the Star Trek films.

I would recommend this to anyone who loves the actor and especially his work in Star Trek! In fact, I'm buying it as a gift for a friend as we speak!
