This is a great book if you're looking for a ray of insight into the young Leonard Nimoy. He writes with ease and subtle humour, relating anecdote after another surrounding his involvement with Star Trek. He speaks of his colleagues at the time with fondness and grace regardless of how fast or weak their relationship was. He proves to be an insightful, sensitive and wise man, not unacquainted with hardship and failure. Despite all of his success through the Trek franchise, he possesses a genuine humility and gratitude towards his many fans and opportunities, and he has maintained a gentleness of spirit rivalled only by a sharpness of mind.
