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.

Salesmans "true" story
I enjoyed the early days and opinions of LA. His burgeoning businesses were very interestingBest part were the detailed explanations of each film. ( dissapointed commando was hardly mentioned)
Lots of moments (24 hour book). Military stories were fun.
I was disapointed when Arnie only done the first chapter but once the other voice took over he was very good too.
I wasnt moved to tears but i was amazed at the honesty regarding his "affair" with the housekeeper. i didnt excpect this to be in the book but it was handled in a very up front manner.
I remember reading arnies first biog as a child and being very motivated, now it transpires he did take steroids. This part is handled very tentatively and whilst i loved the story and its telling i think the steroid element should have had much greater importance given in this story. He mentions drug testing happens in bodybuilding now but we know bodybuilders continue to openly abuse steroids.For all his faults which he admits to, Arnie continues to have the ability to inspire. Any young person with a goal or lack of could do worse than listening to this book.Straight into my do not delete library.
