Waterstones Says

In this powerful and empowering book, the legendary actor, bodybuilder and former Californian Governor shares the mental tools and principles – from open-minded curiosity to commitment to giving back – with which he has carved his way to success and living a meaningful life.

The seven rules to follow to realise your true purpose in life-distilled by Arnold Schwarzenegger from his own journey of ceaseless reinvention and extraordinary achievement, and available for absolutely anyone.

The world's greatest bodybuilder. The world's highest paid movie star. The leader of the world's sixth largest economy. That these are the same person sounds like the setup to a joke. But this is no joke. This is Arnold Schwarzenegger. And this did not happen by accident.

Arnold's stratospheric success happened as part of a process. As the result of clear vision, big thinking, hard work, direct communication, resilient problem-solving, open-minded curiosity, and a commitment to giving back. All of it guided by the one lesson Arnold's father hammered into him above all: be useful. As Arnold conquered every realm he entered, he kept his father's adage close to his heart.

Written with his uniquely earnest, blunt, powerful voice, Be Useful takes readers on an inspirational tour through Arnold's toolkit for a meaningful life. Arnold shows us how to put those tools to work, in service of whatever fulfilling future we can dream up for ourselves. He brings his insights to vivid life with compelling personal stories, life-changing successes and life-threatening failures alike - some of them famous, some told here for the first time ever.

Too many of us struggle to disconnect from our self-pity and connect to our purpose. At an early age, Arnold forged the mental tools to build the ladder out of the poverty and narrow-mindedness of his rural Austrian hometown, tools he used to add rung after rung from there. Now he has shared that wisdom with all of us. As he puts it, no one is going to come rescue you - you only have yourself. The good news, it turns out, is that you are all you need.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is how to thrive like Arnie - The Times

Be more Schwarzenegger - Guardian

This is a book filled with Arnie’s overwhelming positivity . . . and who couldn’t do with a dollop of that? - Daily Mail

He’s likeable and straight-talking, while his views are refreshingly – and, in modern American politics, perhaps uniquely – sane. Proof can be found in his new book, Be Useful, which is part memoir, part self-help guide, and is full of the kind of rugged, patriotic, pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps attitude that Americans love’ - Telegraph
