THE GREATEST IMMIGRANT SUCCESS STORY OF OUR TIME andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;His story is unique,andlt;/Bandgt; and uniquely entertaining, and he tells it brilliantly in these pages. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;He was born in a year of famine,andlt;/Bandgt; in a small Austrian town, the son of an austere police chief. He dreamed of moving to America to become a bodybuilding champion and a movie star. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;By the age of twenty-one,andlt;/Bandgt; he was living in Los Angeles and had been crowned Mr. Universe. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Within five years,andlt;/Bandgt; he had learned English and become the greatest bodybuilder in the world. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Within ten years,andlt;/Bandgt; he had earned his college degree and was a millionaire from his business enterprises in real estate, landscaping, and bodybuilding. He was also the winner of a Golden Globe Award for his debut as a dramatic actor in andlt;Iandgt;Stay Hungryandlt;/Iandgt;. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Within twenty years,andlt;/Bandgt; he was the worldand#8217;s biggest movie star, the husband of Maria Shriver, and an emerging Republican leader who was part of the Kennedy family. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Thirty-six years after coming to America, andlt;/Bandgt;the man once known by fellow bodybuilders as the Austrian Oak was elected governor of California, the seventh largest economy in the world. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;He led the state through a budget crisis, natural disasters, and political turmoil, working across party lines for a better environment, election reforms, and bipartisan solutions. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;With Maria Shriver, he raised four fantastic children. In the wake of a scandal he brought upon himself, he tried to keep his family together. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Until now,andlt;/Bandgt; he has never told the full story of his life, in his own voice. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Here is Arnold, with total recall.andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;Bandgt;andlt;/Bandgt;

Synopsis:

One of the most anticipated autobiographies of this generation, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall is the candid story by one of the world’s most remarkable actors, businessmen, and world leaders.

Born in the small city of Thal, Austria, in 1947, Arnold Schwarzenegger moved to Los Angeles at the age of twenty-one. Within ten years, he was a millionaire businessman. After twenty years, he was the world’s biggest movie star. In 2003, he was elected governor of California and a household name around the world.

     Chronicling his embodiment of the American Dream, Total Recall covers Schwarzenegger’s high-stakes journey to the United States, from creating the international bodybuilding industry out of the sands of Venice Beach, to breathing life into cinema’s most iconic characters, and becoming one of the leading political figures of our time. Proud of his accomplishments and honest about his regrets, Schwarzenegger spares nothing in sharing his amazing story.

Interesting read on the life of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Incredible drive and discipline but obviously had flaws too.

This book is subtitled, "My Unbelievably True Life Story,' and it is certainly not a misnomer.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's life story is indeed unbelievable. What a multi-dimensional personality. To have succeeded in so many different areas as an immigrant is just incredible.

Total Recall touches a lot on Arnold's personal life and his relationship not only with his wife Maria, but also with her extended family the illustrious Shrivers and the Kennedys. If, however, you are reading this book only to find a no holds bar account of his affair with his housekeeper and his illegitimate son; don't bother. Arnold has talked about it but not in as much detail as you are expecting.
