Can't you see this guy's in pain?! Oh, and Bill Shatner found clever ways of hiding Nimoy's bike like suspending it from the ceiling of the set. Fun stuff!
The only part about the book I didn't like was the chapter about "The Good Mother," one of the films Nimoy directed. I don't want to watch that film, by the way.
It deals with this mother who tries to do the best for her daughter by never refusing to give her information, even about the more explicit stuff that's my way of putting it lightly, by the way. Not gonna actually say what the book said. So, that whole chapter wasn't my favorite because it mentioned "embarassing"? But hey, it didn't ruin Star Trek for me, because it wasn't even about Star Trek.
It was fun to hear about Nimoy's Star Trek, film, theater, and directing career. Aug 28, Clark Hallman rated it it was amazing Shelves: biography. This memoir by Leonard Nimoy focuses on his involvement with the Star Trek television series and the succeeding Star Trek movies.

I Am Spock is the second volume of actor and director Leonard Nimoy's autobiography. The book was published in , four years after the release of the last. I Am Spock Hardcover – October 26, Few actors are as inextricably associated with one role as Leonard Nimoy is with Star Trek's Mr. Spock. In , when he was embarking on a post-Star Trek career, Nimoy published an autobiography with the tongue-in-cheek title I Am Not Spock.
He discusses individual stories and scenes from TV episodes and movies, and provides his viewpoint of how he carried out his responsibilities as an actor and as a director. However, the relationship between Nimoy and Spock is the most important relationship in this book. He expresses regret about the title of that book, because it resulted in much animosity from fans and other problems for him. Many people thought he did not like portraying Spock or being part of the Star Trek phenomenon.
As the title of this book confirms, Nimoy admits that he cares deeply about the character and indeed Spock is part of him and he is part of Spock. Nimoy also discusses many other very significant acting roles, performances, and achievements that occurred between his Star Trek work periods.

Up until now, I had not read any of the memoirs of the original crew, except for one of William Shatner's which I also really enjoyed.
I had had this book on my TBR shelf for quite awhile, must have picked it up at a used book sale somewhere. With Leonard Nimoy's recent death, I decided to read it for a nonfiction book challenge that I am participating in this year.
I totally enjoyed it, didn't wa I have to say, I've been a Star Trek fan in all its incarnations for as long as I can remember. I totally enjoyed it, didn't want to put it down. His writing style was so enjoyable, it just flowed. The book was mostly about the Star Trek times in his life, making the original series and afterward, the movies. He continually used "conversations" between himself and his alter ego, Spock, to drive the story onward, which I thought was humorous.
Totally enjoyable read for a trekkie. I'm thinking about going back and reading his other book which was actually written before this one, "I am not Spock. View 1 comment. May 04, Jenny rated it really liked it Shelves: audiobooks , biography. And er, Spock.

Loved getting to know more about Leonard in his own words. Jun 12, Steven rated it liked it. Surprisingly well-written for a man operating outside his chosen craft. This book is full of interesting stories about the inner workings of Hollywood, both the television and the movie business. Kirstie Alley—who had a small role in an early film—insisted on so high a salary the next time around that she was simply unaffordable.
Per Surprisingly well-written for a man operating outside his chosen craft. Perhaps she had no idea she was asking for more money than Dr. McCoy DeForrest Kelley was being paid after 20 years in a leading role!
