One of the most anticipated autobiographies of this generation, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Recall is the candid story of 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.

"better than I expected "
loved it very motivational, really makes you get up and go. stay hungry never give up
Where do I start? You don't have to be into fitness to get something from this book. Arnold is a humble chap and a role model for how to strive for the best in life.
More to this man than I ever knew. Pleasantly surprised by the story and what he has achieved. Politics bit gets a little boring but is needed for context. Very good over all.
Didn't realise Arny had been so motivated in so many different fields. Obviously a more intelligent man than what he has been portrayed as in the press over the years. Sounds like he is an absolute workaholic an nothing or no one would get in his way of his goals. I'd imagine he'd be a very hard person to live with or be around due to him always having an agenda on the brain. Downside to the book is that it's not the best for movie fans, there isn't much inner detail about his films in general etc
"Unbelievable amazing life story"
It's amazing what a man can do with his life that starts with nothing. Just with the principle: it's all about sets and reps. A must read or listen. The narrator is fine, enjoyable listening.
"A fantastic life story"
Total Recall is a simple yet fascinating journey through Arnold's incredible life.
I found his childhood ambition and drive fascinating, and I really respect how he tells of all the people on the way who impacted and influenced him.
I felt the book was very honest and open. And really inspiring. I feel that with this book, he wants to show that if you just go with the opportunities that arise and work hard, you can make something happen.
Narration gets the job done and is easy to listen to, but fairly unremarkable.
Overall I'd thoroughly recommend Total Recall
Loved it! It is really motivating and moving. A mist read for every young wanna be businessman or athlete.
"listen to this"
I dont say I agree with everything but It really worth listening to it , and it is just fascinating.
good honest incite into what drove him to achieve what he did and how hard he worked
"Inspiring story and in ways I didn't expect"
I was inspired by Arnold's life story.... Inspired to be fitted, inspired to be better at business and inspired to be a better person, better father.
Good fun story too!
