Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable Man
The world lost a treasure when Leonard Nimoy passed away. His art, his style, his philanthropic efforts, his impact on pop culture through Star Trek and voice acting and Fringe and so many other outlets… I have rarely seen an outpouring of affection from fans or the public for a celebrity like the one that Leonard Nimoy inspired.
And his longtime friend, colleague, and captain William Shatner has penned a tribute to the heart and soul of Mr. Spock with Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable Man. It’s an honest, heartfelt, sad, fascinating, and funny tribute to Nimoy from one of the people who knew him best, and it makes for a truly unforgettable reading experience.
I’ve always felt like biographies should be written by friends because they go deeper than any outside biographer ever could — take, for example, Ed McMahon’s tribute to Johnny Carson — and Shatner knocks it out of the park here, sharing hard truths and lighthearted moments, stories of love and times of strife.
This is an endeavor worthy of the man, the myth, and the legend. Nicely done, Captain.
