Chekov's Enterprise: A Personal Journal of the Making of Star Trek - The Motion Picture

In the words of the author, the book is "fast reading, entertaining, informative". I've previously read a number of books in this vein:

So, a book from an actor's perspective rounds things out nicely. It's a diary, so it's a series of anecdotes, reflections from Koenig on how the film is going or on the craft of acting, and generally his personal feelings during those months. A pleasant read.
