This is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s recently released auto-biography, a really interesting and enjoyable read, especially if you are a fan of him. Arnold is such an interesting character in history because of his journey through life, going from his traditional Austrian upbringing, to conquering the bodybuilding world, then carving out a muscleman position in Hollywood and being part of many great films whilst also becoming a businessman and then finally his furor into politics. He’s taken on 4 giant sections of society and triumphed in each, fitness, business, acting and politics. Truly an icon of recent times.
The book is written very well, and keeps your interest throughout, it manages to mix in both serious and comical stories that give you a greater understanding to how Arnold led his life, always up for a challenge, and always working hard. Whilst he did have some incredibly luck along the way, it shows through his autobiography what dedicated was needed to climb the heights he did, he was working and studying all the time, never idle in what he pushed himself towards, and that is the real secret to his success, being a machine towards the challenges he set himself up for.
I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone, and it helps bring inspiration to what your challenges are, whilst also providing you with an enjoyable read, filled with funny/interesting stories.
