AUTHOR

SUMMARY

LARGER-THAN-LIFEHe has been known as the Austrian Oak, Mr. Universe, and the Terminator. Now he answers to " Governor." From humble beginnings in a small Austrian village, Arnold Schwarzenegger pumped himself into the greatest bodybuilder in history, the biggest movie star in the world, and a political force to be reckoned with-- all with raw ambition and driving self-confidence. In "Fantastic," esteemed biographer Laurence Leamer captures Arnold' s amazing story as no one else could. Drawing on unprecedented interviews with Arnold, his wife Maria Shriver, and Arnold' s friends, family, lovers, competitors, business partners, and political adversaries, Leamer offers a brilliant, uniquely detailed portrait of this self-made man who married a Kennedy princess and scaled the heights of America' s elite. Readers will discover: - A troubled youth: growing up the son of a strict former Nazi and overcoming adversity by discovering the potential of weight training - The superhuman: the arrogant showman who revolutionized bodybuilding-- and his astounding string of Mr. Olympia titles - Blockbuster stardom: why a heavy accent and wooden acting style couldn' t keep Arnold and his publicist from marketing him into the world' s largest grossing film icon - The unlikeliest Kennedy: his marriage to Maria Shriver and her role in Arnold' s rise to governor of the Golden State ...and more! " Provides rich insights into the conditions that have made Schwarzenegger what he seems to be, material that will no doubt form the basis for any subsequent biographies." -- "The ""Washington""Post" " Utterly fascinating, unflinchingly candid, and relentlessly readable, "Fantastic" will be the standard by which all other works on Arnold Schwarzenegger are judged." -- Nigel Hamilton, author of "JFK: Reckless Youth" WITH 16 PAGES OF STRIKING PHOTOGRAPHS!Leamer, Laurence is the author of 'Fantastic The Life of Arnold Schwarzenegger', published 2006 under ISBN 9780312933012 and ISBN 0312933010.
