I've been listening to audio books for well over twenty years (even before audible was available). Secretly, I wish I could be a narrator.
As a former businessman and MBA graduate, I've admired Arnold's entrepreneurialism and his use of goals to accomplish his dreams. Goal theory has been well researched and Arnold is living proof it works. My overall opinion of Arnold has grown tremendously after reading his autobiography. I highly recommend the book.
this is a good story that is fun and easy to listen to, but it's an autobiography that lists how smart he is, successful in business, body building, films, real estate, philanthropy, politics, etc. good but arnold is the best guy he knows gets very old.
Ardent listener of non-fiction audiobooks. It started when I got a big dog. Exercise + audiobooks = time well spent!
Dreams, determination, follow-through.
Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance.You can see a lot of the same determination, grand ideas and desires in both of them. Although their aims were different, you can see that they have/had a lot of the same drive and both are admired today by hundreds of millions of people, if not more.
Not applicable in non-fiction.
No. It's too long for that. It's very interesting but most people wouldn't listen to that much all at once.
I thought it lost a bit of it's edge in the last third of the book or so. I've been very interested in politics since I was in high school but I strangely found the parts describing his political career to be unexceptional and even tiresome. He felt weaker quite frankly. That brought the book down to 4 stars instead of 5. Still a great book though!
A great read. I stared off reading a book, but moved to audible because of the sheer length of the book. At times the book was a little bit too detailed which I could have done without. My biggest take away reps, reps, reps. The journey of one man who had the odds stacked against him, but still succeeded in life having 3 very successful careers. It is only possible by take big risks and being ready.
Considering only content. 5 stars until he becomes a mafioso (or politician, as some call them), after that, 1 star. Just a different individual. Averaging up: 3 stars.
Arnold does a fantastic job swinging his life story, cluding how to overcome challenges, to show determination have a vision continue to dream to be successful this is definitely a must! it's a book, for anyone who's looking for a mentor or to be inspired by a life coach.
What an incredible story! I had always known that Arnold must have been really tenacious to become a champion but he movie career and then governorship shows just how amazing he is. This was very entertaining. I'll admit that I spent several hours at the gym listening to this book. Absolutely loved it.
This book is much longer than I had anticipated. What a GREAT look into the way that he thinks and works. While what we see our his successes and maybe some of his failures, this guy is a complete behind the scenes view of what made all of those things possible.
Great story, worth the money. And very enjoyable. Just love it. The reader is impressionable, the story line is condense, and the fact that this is a real life story is truly unbelievable.
Arnold's story is truly remarkable and filled with thorough descriptions helpful to anyone. Through goals and grit, humor and perseverance, and achievement after achievement, one can't be unimpressed by the amazing life that Governor Schwarzenegger has led.
Written very conversationally, like Trump's Tye Art of the Deal, Arnold describes his intentions, motivations, forks in the road, and professional endeavors with great clarity and heart, while incorporating interesting behind the scenes facets from the Kennedy family, celebrity life, bodybuilding and life in government.
Very highly recommended for anyone striving for anything or any fan of Arnold.
