Best known to the world as the actor who created the legendary Mr. Spock in the cult television series that launched the Star Trek phenomenon, Leonard Nimoy has written the definitive Star Trek memoir. In this long-awaited autobiography, Nimoy opens up to his fans in ways the Vulcan never could.

Having played the pivotal role of Mr. Spock in the original series, in six motion pictures, and in a special two-part episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as having directed two of the movies, Nimoy is well suited to tell the true story behind what was seen by the public. He provides an intelligent and insightful book about the creative process and the actor's craft - and gives his own unique insider's view of the creation of both the character, Mr. Spock, and the Star Trek phenomenon.

    " He's an interesting guy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 9/22/2013

    " Considering this as a celebrity autobiography, it was actually not bad. A bit self-serving, but what can one really expect? Since I am a fan of the original Star Trek series, I greatly enjoyed the behind-the-scenes stories involving that part of Mr. Nimoy's life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 8/28/2013

    " I have to admit that I wasn't very interested most of the time. I usually enjoy "behind the scenes" type stories, but this was rather dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 8/21/2013

    " Yes, I'm a nerd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Ribeiro | 6/11/2013

    " Less than 150 pgs, worth it for fans of the show/movies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bj Hoover | 5/26/2013

    " As an old fan of the original Star Trek series, I enjoy all the related books on the actors and characters. In re reading this book by Leonard Nimoy, I once again am reminded of the sensitivity and intelligence of this actor. The depth of character analysis of Mr Spock is enlightening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 5/2/2013

    " Awesome look into the life of Leonard Nimoy and how he and the fans perceived his role as "Spock." He pretty much whines alot about being typecast...20 years later in the book "I am Spock," he decides..it's not such a bad thing to be Spock. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Finka | 8/23/2012

    " A great glance into amazing thoughts of a great artist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brie Gordon | 8/19/2012

    " It reads more like a letter to his therapist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tabata | 1/21/2012

    " I read I Am Spock before I got my hands on this one so I technically read all of it before since I Am Spock is basically just an enhanced version of I Am Not Spock but it was entertaining nontheless, and as a big Leonard Nimoy fan it will always be an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 9/14/2011

    " Enjoyed it - will have to try and read his next book. I am a trekie from the start of the series. Liked all of the background info. Well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nakaya | 12/23/2010

    " Having been raised a Star Trek fan (on Voyager, however) I've always loved delving further into and beyond the Trek universe. This book is really a treat and I love reading things through the eyes of Nimoy. Sadly, I have yet to read this books predecessor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bradley | 12/5/2010

    " A very colourful book filled with personal stories. I loved it! Very fun! I am more than a smidge Trekkie! =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 7/15/2010

    " A must read for any Trekkie. Lots of behind the scenes stuff that makes the movies even more interesting to watch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 5/22/2010

    " I listened to this audiobook over the course of many evening constitutionals. I like the sound of Leonard Nimoy's grandfatherly voice. Also a nice glimpse into the behind the scenes of the original Trek series and films. Best experienced in this form, I think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyn | 3/18/2010

    " I have a deeper respect for Nimoy after I read this book. If you are a ligh or heavy ST fan, this is a must read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 2/22/2010

    " Must have been pretty good to get 4 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lukas | 1/26/2010

    " Interesting and fact-filled; great for any Star Trek fan, and maybe some that aren't. For instance, did you know Leonard Nimoy directed the American remake of Three Men and a Baby? This book is full of stuff like that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/12/2010

    " This book was excellent!!! Leonard Nimoy is so classy, and writes extremely well. This was easily my favorite autobiography that I have ever read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 1/5/2010

    " Don't laugh. Leonard Nimoy is a stud, and you know it. "
