New York Times Bestseller

Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner first crossed paths as actors on the set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Little did they know that their next roles as Spock and Captain Kirk, in a new science fiction television series, would shape their lives in ways no one could have anticipated. In seventy-nine television episodes of Star Trek and six feature films, they grew to know each other more than most friends could ever imagine.

Over the course of half a century, Shatner and Nimoy saw each other through personal and professional highs and lows. In this powerfully emotional book, Shatner tells the story of a man who was his friend for five decades, recounting anecdotes and untold stories of their lives on and off set, as well as gathering stories from others who knew Nimoy well, to present a full picture of a rich life.

As much a biography of Nimoy as a story of their friendship, Leonard is a uniquely heartfelt book written by one legendary actor in celebration of another.

Dreadful book

What an incredible waste of my precious reading time. This book needed a ruthless editor, but even more it needed a writer who had a clue about sequence, chronology, and was more interested in his subject than himself.

Not up to snuff

I've enjoyed Shatner's previous work with collaborators but something went wrong this time around. His usual "voice" and bantering humor are absent. It's monotone, bland, and dry. Awkwardly written phrases and even errors further blemished what should have a personally insightful book.

Was Shatner not "up" to the task? Did they select an ineffective collaborator? Did the publisher not edit the book? What happened?!

Nimoy deserved better than this.
