Born in a year of famine in a tiny Austrian town to becoming one of the most widely recognized names on the planet, Arnold Schwarzenegger's life story is a study in what it takes to become the best, and some of the pitfalls along the way. Seven-time Mr. Olympia winner, four-time Mr. Universe winner, Golden Globe winner, former governor of California which would be ranked as the world's fifth largest economy if it were a sovereign nation, a long list of successful action movies, the successes Schwarzenegger has had would take many pages to list.

He also struggled like most of us do, going through a divorce, leaving behind friends and family to move to an unfamiliar country, heart problems, money problems, and losing loved ones to name a few of his challenges.

I hope you'll enjoy this book as much as I did!
