Leonard

This is William Shatner’s book about Leonard Nimoy. It is good. Shatner and Nimoy first met during an episode of the Man from U.N.C.L.E. and course worked together later on Star Trek.

Shatner reads the audible version. I liked his reading.

This is not a straight biography of Nimoy. It is more a look at Shatner and Nimoy’s long time friendship. Shatner admits to his jealousy when Nimoy’s Spock character became wildly popular.

The book also covers Nimoy’s complicated relationship with Star Trek’s creator Gene Roddenbury. Shatner also had a complicated relationship with Roddenbury.

Some of this material was covered in Shatner’s earlier books Star Trek Memories and Movie Memories. However there is new material. I enjoyed the book a lot.
