Leonard Audio Excerpt and Sweepstakes

William Shatner’s Leonard is a biography Star Trek diehards won’t want to miss. This audiobook, written and read by William Shatner, details the five decades of the two incredible actors’ friendship—from their births which took place just days apart in March 1931 and both discovering acting at just eight-years-old, to their first interaction as actors on the set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the seventy-nine TV episodes/six feature films they would appear together in as Mr. Spock and Captain James T. Kirk.

Beyond their professional interactions, Shatner and Nimoy shared in many personal highs and lows, which Shatner recounts his own anecdotes and untold stories—while also retelling stories gathered from others who knew Nimoy well—presenting a full life lived beyond the images that were immortalized on film. Leonard is more than just a biography of one of the greats of TV and film; it is a deeply emotional story of a friendship between two extraordinary men.

Hear William Shatner describing the genesis of Leonard Nimoy’s most famous role as Star Trek’s Mr. Spock in this excerpt from the audiobook:
