I Am Spock

I Am Spock is the title of Leonard Nimoy's second autobiography, published in 1995 which is a fascinating read.

Leonard Nimoy's second book exploits the logic of the Vulcan Science Officer from Star Trek's universe, revealing a series of private conversations between Mr Spock and Mr Nimoy. This unique book contains a saga of Leonard's experiences as an actor, director, and producer of Star Trek Stories.
A letter in the Foreword section of "I Am Spock" addressed to Mr Leonard Nimoy at Earth's Sol Star System poses the question - Would you consider writing the foreward to my new book? - followed by Mr Nimoy and Spock dialog from Leonard's first autobiography published in 1975.

Can you guess its title?

Live Long and Prosper.

Poor Leonard Nimoy had trouble with his character since he wrote "I am Not Spock" and then this book:) I think he finally accepted his alter ego

It was logical to use Leonard Nimoy's own words.

One of the best Star Trek-related books I read from that time, and one of the few I would willingly reread.

Great post. I did something interesting with Spock on my blog. I had two post. One was called:
"Spock I Am Not", an obvious misquote of Nimoy's first book name. In this one I described having a lack of emotions as a child.I also listed why I didn't like poetry then and listed a few other Vulcans I was not like.

In my second post, I titled it:
"Spock I am", another obvious misquote of his second book. In this post, I wrote a poem about Spock.

"Spock is definitely one of my best friends. When I put on those ears, it's not like just another day. When I become Spock, that day becomes something special."

Put on Spock's ears and make your day special, Elephant's Child. Remember.

The logical Mr. Spock. There had to be a Spock to temper Jim Kirk's impulsive hunch playing.
