'The Terminator' Turns To Writing

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a weight-lifter, actor, producer and political star. Now he intends to write a book called, "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story" which his publicist said is NOT intended as a tell-all, so don't expect lurid details of his alleged affairs, including the liaison with the nanny which led to the birth of a son outside his marriage to Maria Schriver.

You might be interested to know this is hardly Schwarzenegger's first time writing a book. In fact, during the 1970's when he was at the pinnacle of weight-training celebrity he wrote and published the hugely popular "Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder."

Times have changed, however, and politics make for strange bedfellows. When he was popular for his body-building prowess it was easy to like him and appreciate his struggles and want to emulate him. As Governor of California, however, he made as many enemies as he did friends and the fallout from his divorce still reverberates with some people.

Schwarzenegger will definitely publish his book, whether or not it will become a best seller, well, that remains to be seen.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s autobiography will not be a “tell-all”.

The book will detail Arnold’s childhood in Austria and his ever-changing careers as a bodybuilder, a Hollywood star and a politician. Although the memoir will touch on his personal life including his recent split from wife Maria Shriver, that won’t be its focus.

A source revealed to People magazine that the tome “will not be a tell-all”.

The memoir has been given the working title, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story. Arnold hopes to write it in between shooting all-action movie The Expendables 2 with Sylvester Stallone.

The former California governor is famous for having taken an unusual road to fame.

"Nobody has a life story even close to his,” his publisher, Jonathan Karp revealed. “Truly, Arnold is one of the most fascinating figures of our time."
