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.

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.
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
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!
What an amazing read/listen. Heart felt and inspirational. Definitely one of my favourites of all time!
"More than expected"
I was left with a feeling of "I can do it" and learned some insights for protecting ideas from other people's negative expectations.
I view into the life of a true legend. what a life he's had. amazing listen
"The guy is a hero"
Does what it says on the tin, the story is unbelievable. However to have accomplished so much with so much drive and focus he is really an example to all.
"A great insight into a super bloke!"
Really interesting book, full of back story and insights. It's just a pity he didn't read the entire book.
