In his signature larger-than-life style, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Total Recall is a revealing self-portrait of his illustrious, controversial, and truly unique life.

Born in the small city of Thal, Austria, in 1947, Arnold Schwarzenegger moved to Los Angeles and was crowned Mr. Universe at the age of twenty-one. Five years later, he had become the greatest bodybuilder in the world. Within ten years, he was a millionaire businessman. And after twenty years, he was the world’s biggest movie star. By 2003, he was Governor of California and a household name around the world.

Through political turmoil, unparalleled fame, supreme wealth, and heartbreaking scandal, he spares nothing, remaining proud of his accomplishments, honest about his regrets, and humorously self-aware in this ultimate account of the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger.
