Amazing story. He had an amazing brain...he had more access of brain cell than most of us can dream of.
Thanks mr Arnold for all you have done!
Your movies and your career are amazing.
Your book inspires me to want more and more of my life.
As immigrant I could see a little of my life here in USA, a country that is impossible to not love for everything that it can do and give to you.
Unfortunately not everything of your story is not a day in the paradise, but thanks for being honest.
Being honest is the quality that made you be the kinda man that you are.
Your big fan.

Perfection is all I can say about this book. Arnold Schwarzenegger is truly an unbelievable human being. We can all take pointers from his life. Get out there and make yourself useful!
There are many muscular men and many politicians. But someone who can literally launch a industry to an international spotlight is remarkable. To become a international action figure something not many people can say. To make California the first green state and to bring child obesity and global warming to the international community is the mark of a remarkable human being thank you Arnold and thank you Audible you guys rock!!!!
Inspiring and especially when it came from himself.

Arnold as himself.
It somehow re-lit my beautiful and innocent ideas on how I used to make my own heaven and reflect it to others with sincere charm. Hope, I suppose was the strongest message that this book gave me...
This is also a very motivational book for those who want to shape up their body. But I guess it also shapes up your perspective & principles in life.
I wasn't sure what to expect and always had enjoyed his movies, but hadn't been the biggest fan. Of course being Austrian I always have had an interest in his achievements. After listening to his audiobook I have to say: I am now! This man has achieved much more than anyone would expect and he tells it in his very humble, modest, motivated and yet self-conscious way. I also have to praise the speaker. The choice and his way of speaking was so Arnold like that I completely forgot it is not Arnold himself speaking. And I appreciate that I could still listen to Arnold's own voice in the first and last chapter. I learned my lesson not only for life but also for how to produce my next audiobook. Thank you and good luck!
I was thoroughly impressed with this book. I had no idea Arnold had such a mind for business, or such a knack for thinking outside the box. I even learned a little about politics! I've listened to a lot of great bios, but this one is by far my favorite.
Arnold is a lot more than meets the eye. Before reading this book, I only knew him for body building and his movies, and what I then thought was him stumble into politics but there is a sharp and strategic mind underneath all that muscle. I started to suspect as much after watching Pumping Iron recently. This biography confirmed.
His father instilled in him mindfulness from his early days by having him journal every event for each day. His father kept made great emphasis on education and I believe this is what sent his down the path for success. Arnold knows is aware of each moment and makes the most of it while many just watch each moment pass us by. This is fundamentally what I believe that allowed him to accomplish so much in life.
The quality of the audiobook was excellent, the parts Arnold read himself were on point. His voice brought real life to the story.
It's a pretty long listen, took me the better part of two weeks to complete but it was worth it.
Well done Governator.
