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.

It's a fantastic book, and there are a lot of amusing tales of life on the ST set in there, as well as a lot of other wonderful things. Nimoy writes in a really pleasant style, so it's easy to read and enjoyable too.

Format: Hardcover
Obviously I am a Star Trek fan hence my purchase. This is a FACINATING read from start to finish. Nimoy is a talented actor and director and now he can add author to his list of talents. The insights into the hardships created by Paramount and the studios in the first season of Star Trek are revealing.

It is most refreshing to be told in this book that the idea for the current Star Trek movie was in fact conceived many years ago and was rejected by the studio. It will be interesting to see if Paramount create an entire new series from the success of the last movie.
I haven't read "I Am Not Spock" but this book I believe has a lot of its content with the explanation of the title choice 20 years before.

If you are a true Trekkie this is a LOGICAL purchase for you. Brilliant!
