As a child of the 80's I grew up watching Schwarzenegger movies and loved them.
Schwarzenegger is an inspirational figure who's single mindedness and drive are the tools that got him to the top. I think we can all learn a thing or two from his relentless pursuit of his goals. However just like the rest of us Schwarzenegger has his floors too and he does touch on those in this book. Arnold simply runs over anybody that gets in the way of him reaching his goals and that's not always a good thing. Learning about Arnold's life and the way in which he sees the world was very entertaining and insightful for me. For anybody that is interested in Schwarzenegger this book is golden.
A very comprehensive telling of Arnold Schwarzenegger's life. I can't wait to see what he adds later in life. It sounds like he's not done with Government and has a good mind for business.
I would recommend this book, but only to the right friend. Arnold does not shy away from language or personal subjects, so I'd be careful before I recommended this book.
This is the first book I've listened to by Arnold.
This is the first book I've listened to by Stephen or Arnold.
Yes, Total Recall could be a movie. I'd cast Arnold Schwarzenegger for the leading role.
A strong, inspirational recap of the life of Arnold. I'd start to look up to Arnold so much, only to be disappointed by how he chooses to live his life. It's a good reminder to never meet your heros.
listening to the governator's story from childhood to now in full detail is amazing! if you got the abridged version, you'll only be wanting to hear more. of course, I didn't listen to the abridged version yet but I think my opinion wouldn't really change.
I have always enjoyed Arnold in movies and from his career with body building. However there is so much more to the man, the odds are not odd if you have his determination.
Reps, reps, reps - fabulous.
