Front Jacket Excerpt:
"Arnold Schwarzenegger's life reads like one of the unlikeliest of
Hollywood scripts: the rise of an Austrian bodybuilder to box-office
superstar and member of America's "royal family," the Kennedys. Born in
1947 near Graz, Austria, Arnold began bodybuiling as a teenager and won the
first contest he entered. His competitive nature drove him on to win the
Mr. Universe title five times and the professional Mr. Olympia title an
unprecedented seven times.
'Arnold Schwarzenegger' traces the superstar's path of success with more
than 100 photographs, mostly in color. The book features a filmography and
a large, full-color poster of Arnold Schwarzenegger at his very best.
