He arrived in California with $20 in his pocket; now he's governor of the state. But who is Arnold Schwarzenegger? A superachiever, rising from a steroid-enhanced bodybuilder into a global star and the highest-paid actor in Hollywood? Or a Teutonic terminator, sent from Austria to America to kick Democratic butt? Nigel Andrews unearths Arnold's riveting story from his strict Germanic upbringing through the worlds of bodybuilding and movies to his metamorphosis from muscle-bound star to political powerhouse. Andrews illuminates the myth-making power of Arnold's own ambitions and follows his strange career all the way up through the stage-managed but scandal-assailed campaign and dramatic recall election to his eventual triumph.
