About the Author

Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in Thal, Austria, in 1947, in a small village bordering the Styrian capital Graz. Schwarzenegger served in the Austrian Army in 1965 to fulfill the one year of service required at the time of all 18-year-old Austrian males. During his army service, he won the Junior mostrar mais Mr. Europe contest. In 1967, Schwarzenegger won the title of Mr. Universe for the first time, becoming the youngest ever Mr. Universe at the age of 20. He would go on to win the title three more times. Schwarzanegger moved to the U.S. in 1968 at the age of 21. In 1970, at age 23, he captured his first Mr. Olympia title in New York, and would go on to win the title a total of seven times. Schwarzenegger is considered among the most important figures in the history of bodybuilding, and his legacy is commemorated in the Arnold Classic annual bodybuilding competition. For many years, he wrote a monthly column for the bodybuilding magazines Muscle & Fitness and Flex. Shortly after being elected Governor, he was appointed executive editor of both magazines, in a largely symbolic capacity. The magazines agreed to donate $250,000 a year to the Governor's various physical fitness initiatives. The magazine MuscleMag International has a monthly two-page article on him, and refers to him as "The King". Aside from bodybuilding, Schwarzenegger has been a successful actor, businessman, investor, and politician. He served as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 until 2011. Among his titles are: "Arnie": Schwarzenegger and the Movies, Governor Arnold: A Photodiary of His First 100 Days in Office, and Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story which made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012.

Es ist richtig, dass das Buch ein hohes Maß an Eigenlob und Selbstbeweihräucherung enthält. Allerdings sehe ich darin keine Schwäche. Im Gegenteil wird deutlich, was Arnold Schwarzenegger als ein Immigrant aus einem kleinen Kaff in Österreich alles erreicht hat. Und das ist eine ganze Menge - und zwar in ganz unterschiedlichen Bereichen.
Die Fragen am Ende sind für mich eher: Kaufe ich ihm die Erzählung ab, so wie er sie darstellt? Und finde ich die Ratschläge sinnvoll und nachvollziehbar? Kann ich etwas damit anfangen? Darum geht es meiner Ansicht nach in solchen "Selbsthilfe-Büchern" primär. Meine Antwort ist: Ja. Der grundlegende Ratschlag "Be Useful" ist an sich bereits hilfreich. Schwarzenegger fächert dieses Thema im Verlauf des Buches aber weiter auf. Immer angelehnt an Geschichten und Anekdoten aus seinem eigenen Leben. Das macht das Lesen für mich interessant und lehrreich, weil hier, im Gegensatz zu vielen 20jährigen Bloggern, die dann mit einem Buch ihre Blogs vermarkten wollen, jemand erzählt, der tatsächlich Lebenserfahrung gesammelt hat.
Für Fans von Schwarzenegger ein Muß, für alle auf der Suche nach einem unterhaltsamen Selbsthilfe-Buch mit Mehrwert durchaus zu empfehlen.

I loved listening to Arnold read his own story, even my husband, who does not enjoy listening to audiobooks, listened to a chunk of this book because Arnold is so awesome. I loved hearing Arnie pepper words of wisdom and relevant anecdotes into the story of his life.
I thought Arnold's choice to not capitalize on the breakdown of his family unit was a classy choice. I love that he thanked Maria for being an amazing mother and for their time together.

Having read Total Recall 10+ years ago, I was interested to see what Arnold had to say with regards to tools for life. In short:

1. Have a clear vision
2. Never think small
3. Work your ass off
4. Sell, sell, sell
5. Shift gears
6. Shut your mouth, open your mind
7. Break your mirrors

Solidly written, his message is straight forward and clear. Do your best, be clear with what you want to achieve, show appreciation and gratitude always, sell yourself and give back to the community. Well done.… (mais)
