Leonard – A Review

Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable ManLeonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable Man by William Shatner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Even though I have been a lifelong fan of Star Trek, I was surprised to learn a few things while reading this book. Over the years I had been aware of the rumours regarding feuds between its stars but I chose not to take stock in them. This book is an honest and frank account of a relationship that was to span five decades. I admire William Shatner for his openness and it was clear that although there were painful periods for both of them, William’s love for Leonard came through quite clearly.
At times this book was humorous and at times very emotional. It moved me deeply and I learned so much about the kind of man Leonard actually was. I have seen a different side to him now and I admire him even more for it.
I highly recommend this book and I do not feel that it’s necessary to be a fan of Star Trek. There is so much more to this amazing story and the deep (if somewhat patchy) friendship between two remarkable men.
