Leonard Nimoy's portrayal of the ever-logical Vulcan, Mr. Spock, is one of the most recognizable, loved, and pervasive characterizations in modern popular culture. His single raised eyebrow, the curiosity with which he said "fascinating" at an emotional outbreak, the endless ways he pointed out the illogic of human foibles, have gone down in the history of entertainment as defining one of the true icons of the last several decades. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, Mr. Nimoy opens up to his fans in ways the Vulcan never could. He gives us his unique perspectives on the beginnings of the Star Trek phenomenon, on his relationship with his co-stars, and particularly on the creation of the pointed-eared alien that Nimoy knows best. Mr. Nimoy has been closer to the phenomenon of Star Trek than anyone, having played the pivotal role of 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. He relates here the true story behind what was seen by the public as his reticence to re-create the role and talks frankly about his "mistake" in titling his first book I Am Not Spock--a title that fueled the erroneous belief that he didn't like the character. In I Am Spock, Mr. Nimoy gives us 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 the Star Trek phenomenon. It gives readers a charming and perceptive look into the life of an actor who created a character with mammoth appeal, and how he lives alongside of, learns from, and ultimately enjoys his own creation. --From book jacket.
