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, in a new science-fiction television series, would shape their lives in ways no one could have anticipated. In seventy-nine television episodes 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 audiobook written and read by one legendary actor in celebration of another.

Professional reviews

"William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy were friends for 50 years, creating many memories. They first appeared together in a 1964 episode of "THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E," which was a far cry from the sci-fi work they're most known for. Shatner narrates his story with touching reverence for a dear friend and describes how their relationship strengthened as they filmed 79 episodes of "Star Trek," which would shape their destinies--individually and as a much loved onscreen acting team. Shatner's authentic performance moves the story along with humor and sincerity, making the anecdotes all the more interesting and touching. He describes the significant ways the two influenced each other and how their friendship helped make them the unique actors their fans revered for years to come.
