The life of Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most extraordinary success stories of our time. An immigrant with a heavy accent from a village in Austria, he became the greatest bodybuilder in history, the number-one movie star in the world, the Republican husband of a Kennedy Princess, and the governor of the greatest of American states. Fantastic shows how and why this man of willful ambition and limitless drive achieved his unprecedented accomplishments.
Leamer has had exclusive, intimate interviews with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, including his closest associates; his elementary-school friends in Austria; his mentors; bodybuilding competitors; lifelong friends; first serious girlfriend; political rivals; agents; publicists and producers - many of whom have never been interviewed before.
Leamer captures the public and private Schwarzenegger, a political/cultural figure unlike any other, who could change the face of politics in our country.
