    "Respect Due"
    Would you listen to Total Recall again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to Total Recall again. The author has had an incredibly interesting life. I have a newfound respect for Arnold after reading the book that I didn't have before. Book is an informative read to say the least. A man that earned everything he has ever had. Every step of the way, his life and drive were inspiring, seriously!


    What other book might you compare Total Recall to and why?

    No comparison


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Lang and Arnold Schwarzenegger – was your favorite?

    Arnold


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The book is long and never ever boring but it's length would make it impossible to listen to in one sitting unless you have nothing but time. I love LONG books!

    Story
    "A man with more substance than just muscle"

    Being in a similar age group to Mr Schwarzenegger I could relate to the times and social climate he grew up in. I've read critics remarks that the book demonstrated his huge ego blah blah. Well folks, that's true - but it's an autobiography. Who was he supposed to be talking about? I really enjoyed the way it was written in the first person, and that he narrated a few chapters himself - that really helped to get into it.

    All in all, he has led an interesting and extraordinary life propelled by his self-confidence and determination. Yes he has a big ego, but he wouldn't have made much of himself if he hadn't. This is well worth buying and it's well narrated too. I found the chapters on those parts of his life not covered by the media to be fascinating; ie. his youth and the events that made him the larger than life figure he became.

    I recommend this to anyone interested in people and what makes them who they are.

    "This is the worst book I ever purchased"

    I would like my money back, all Schwarzenegger talks about is body building for to many chapters
