Arnold's 'Total Recall' Life Story

If anyone can do a trailer for a book, then Arnold Schwarzenegger can. And if this epic preview doesn't get you pumped about a biography, then nothing will!

The trailer starts with a silhouette of Arnold from behind as he proclaims, "If my life was a movie, then no one would believe it," before images of the various stages of his life begin to flash across the screen.

The camera slowly turns as he continues his story. "I started out as a bodybuilder from Austria and became the strongest and most muscular man in the world." The camera pans round and then we see that unmistakable profile.

"But, I had bigger dreams; I wanted to be in movies." Arnold goes on to regale us with his cinematic exploits as scenes from some of his best films flash before our eyes.

"Then, I took the greatest gamble of my life. I went into politics," he says, as his inauguration as governor of California plays in the background. "I went from being the Terminator to being the Governator."

By now the camera has come full circle.  Arnold looks the camera dead on and delivers another one of his classic lines, only this one has more meaning than any one he ever delivered in a movie.

"But this story, you know. So are you ready for the story you don't?"

How do you top that for a teaser? Total Recall - My Unbelievable True Story is published by Simon & Schuster and is available now. Did you get your copy yet? Tell us what you think!
