Arnold Schwarzenegger Gets Literary

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a memoir in the works. Simon & Schuster announced today that our fair former Governator/Gropenator has begun work on an autobiography with the tentative title Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.

“Truly, Arnold is one of the most fascinating figures of our time, and one of the greatest success stories in the world,” Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp said in a press release. “Nobody has a life story even close to his.”

Tough to dispute that. Doesn’t mean we’ll be giving him our money though. If the libraries weren’t broke thanks in part to his tenure as governor, maybe we’d be able to pick a copy up there.

Amazingly, this will be Schwarzenegger’s second book. He published The Education of a Bodybuilder back in 1977.
