Publisher's Summary

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.

    What did you love best about Total Recall?

    It shows the journey and mental prowess to accomplish all he did. Yes not all aspects and decisions were best, but what he did accomplish was amazing.

    "Very entertaining"

    I was a little disappointed that Arnold him self didn't narrate the bio but all in in all his story was very entertaining and full of surprises. I might consider actually reading this book.

    "Inconsistent narration"
    Any additional comments?

    It was great having Arnold narrate the first and last chapters. The writing is in his voice and when read by him really comes across well. While Stephen Lang is a good narrator as well, it becomes a bit anticlimactic going from Arnold reading his life story to a narrator doing the same.

    "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
