One of the most anticipated autobiographies of this generation, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Recall is the candid story by one of the world's most remarkable actors, businessmen, and world leaders.
Born in the small city of Thal, Austria, in 1947, Arnold Schwarzenegger moved to Los Angeles at the age of 21. Within 10 years, he was a millionaire businessman. After 20 years, he was the world's biggest movie star. In 2003, he was elected governor of California and became a household name around the world.
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.

Being the first of it's kind that I've listened to, I'm very pleased with the quality and layout of this product.
How it doesn't end, and when it does, you're stuck wondering "where's the rest of it, that can't be all that happened!"
I was never a huge Arnold fan until I listened to this. Now I find myself needing to do more research into his life. I have to listen again for items I missed the first time, and go over all the lessons he insist you learn from this book. The last chapter really brings it home, the first chapter really lets you know why he is the way he is.
I would most definitely recommend this book. I grew up watching Arnold movies and always found his story interesting. My expectations of this book was that it would be something to fill the time, but I didnt expect it to be so captivating.
Stephen Lang has an excellent narrative voice for this book, although I more thoroughly enjoyed Arnold's voice.
Yes, I definitely found myself making time to enjoy it. Great book.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
I will admit it: I came into this book because I wanted to hear Arnold Schwarzenegger narrate an audiobook. And while it was funny at first, I was soon hooked to the story of his rise to power. Stephen Lang, the primary narrator, covers most of the audiobook except the first and last couple of chapters.
Loved it epic pass. really neat that the stories we got to hear about all these years were true. Love that you can hear the vibe of the stories and the truth they carried then till now. Unique new stories were told and will have a great deal of impact on my life!
Definitely worth listening to...great life lessons from his personal successes and failures. Very human story and perspective...
ive been an Aronold fan since my child hood .the book brought to light arnolds past and his rise to fame. i personally loved everysecond of this book . the stroy for me was enlightening . i look at arnold as someone to look up to and use his beliefs alot in my own life . dont judge this book before u listen to it and hear his own words thenjudge him. my only gripe was that the book was mainly read by someone else so some of the emotion was gone but yet i refused to let the readers voice bother me as i wanted to hear one of my idols story of his life. thank you Arnold for opening up to us your fans and sharing ur joys and sorrows with us !
Arnold is my bodybuilding inspiration an all time winner and a true inspiration his unbelievable story is precisely that he was the greatest he wasn't perfect nobody is but he's got the character to face it
What an incredible life he lead. It shows how nothing in life is easy. He went from nothing to being successful and living the big dream. Taking every opportunity life sent him. He is very smart and ambitious.
His start in life and how he ended up in the USA. He is very street smart and clever. I underestimated him.
I enjoy listening about other people's life journeys and Arnold is a large personality with lots of great stories.
i must admit i wasnt a fan of arnold before but i am totally blown away by his character and the hardship he went through to get where he is. just proves that you cant judge a person untill you know his life. i am now a believer and a fan.
very inspiring story of a man who came from nothing but thought it would have contained more interesting and funny anecdotes of the people he met along the way
