    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.

    Story

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is a prime example of someone whose focus and determination set him apart from other people. Athlete, businessman, actor, public servant, philanthropist...the list goes on and on. He embodies so many qualities that I find admirable. I grew up watching his celebrity rise through movies and then peak as governor of California. I always wondered what kind of man could go to a foreign country without speaking the language and become so successful. The book provided insight into his motivations, ambition and intelligence. I found his life story fascinating, although I think there were times he did not give us the whole story. Some may fault him for his foibles and peccadilloes, but who among us is perfect in thought and deed? In fact, I believe his weaknesses make him easier to relate to. I highly recommend this autobiography from a truly exceptional modern renaissance man.

    Story

    Siempre me ha gustado la música de Ricky Martin, pero no me consideré un "fan", por lo tanto no me esperaba mucho más que una lectura interesante y una oportunidad de practicar español cuando compré "Yo" en versiones Kindle y acustica. Me encanta leer autobiografías, pero creo que jamás he leído una tan introspectiva y personal. Ricky expone su alma a nosotros a traves de su libro. Sus discusiones acerca de su lucha interna para aceptar su homosexualidad, su activismo contra la trata de personas y su decisión de convertirse en un padre soltero son especialmente conmovedoras. Lo especial de esta historia es que permite que el lector se identifique con Ricky Martin en todos sus papeles, ya sea cantante, actor, compositor, filántropo o padre. Tengo un gran respeto por Ricky Martin y al final, este buen ser humano me ha convertido en su verdadero fan. Este libro es uno de mis favoritos.
