"For the Love of Spock" is a really good documentary directed by Nimoy's son.  It gets into some of the complexities of being Leonard Nimoy, but it basically boils down to "Dad was a little weird, but worked hard, and no one really enjoyed the spotlight."

That was a great read. I also recommend his documentary "For the Love of Spock". Leonard Nimoy was a fascinating human.

The hardest part of watching that film was seeing Leonard's brother Mel talk about having to bury his younger brother,

Hit me like a ton of bricks watching that.

Nimoy took the character and made him an international pop culture figure over the decades.  One of the most beloved and recognized characters in sci-fi.  They will still be talking about Spock 50-100 years from now.  That's the closest we can get to immortality.  Rock on Mr. Nimoy.

I can also recommend "I am not Spock" and "I am Spock". He wrote entertainingly, and Shatner is a dick.

It's more fun to biatch about not doing things you want to do than do what it takes to do them.

I've met toddlers. This is what they do.

Of course maybe what they want to do is biatch. In which case, gold star. And sippy cup refill.
