THE GREATEST IMMIGRANT SUCCESS STORY OF OUR TIME His story is unique, and uniquely entertaining, and he tells it brilliantly in these pages. He was born in a year of famine, in a small Austrian town, the son of an austere police chief. He dreamed of moving to America to become a bodybuilding champion and a movie star. By the age of twenty-one, he was living in Los Angeles and had been crowned Mr. Universe. Within five years, he had learned English and become the greatest bodybuilder in the world. Within ten years, he had earned his college degree and was a millionaire from his business enterprises in real estate, landscaping, and bodybuilding. He was also the winner of a Golden Globe Award for his debut as a dramatic actor in Stay Hungry. Within twenty years, he was the world's biggest movie star, the husband of Maria Shriver, and an emerging Republican leader who was part of the Kennedy family. Thirty-six years after coming to America, the man once known by fellow bodybuilders as the Austrian Oak was elected governor of California, the seventh largest economy in the world. He led the state through a budget crisis, natural disasters, and political turmoil, working across party lines for a better environment, election reforms, and bipartisan solutions. With Maria Shriver, he raised four fantastic children. In the wake of a scandal he brought upon himself, he tried to keep his family together. Until now, he has never told the full story of his life, in his own voice. Here is Arnold, with total recall.

SoÑaba con mudarse a los Estados Unidos para convertirse en campeÓn del fisiculturismo y estrella de cine. A los veintiÚn aÑos vivÍa en Los Ángeles y ya habÍa sido coronado como Mr. Universo. Cinco aÑos mÁs tarde habÍa aprendido a hablar inglÉs y se habÍa convertido en el mejor fisiculturista del mundo. Diez aÑos mÁs tarde habÍa completado su tÍtulo universitario y se habÍa vuelto millonario gracias a sus empresas comerciales en el sector inmobiliario, el paisajismo y el fisiculturismo. TambiÉn habÍa ganado un Golden Globe por su debut como actor dramÁtico en Stay Hungry.
