Who is the real Arnold Schwarzenegger?

Investigative journalist and number one New York Times bestselling author Ian Halperin reveals the true and untold story about this larger-than-life and often outrageous figure

From his childhood in Austria to his rise as a star of American conservative politics, the story of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s life reads like the script of a Hollywood B-movie penned by Horatio Alger. In this exclusive peek behind the curtain, award-winning scoop hunter Ian Halperin wades through the myths and rumors to discover the real Arnold behind the icon, a man defined by unbridled ambition and an unending quest for power.

Based on extensive research, undercover forays, and candid interviews with many of the Terminator’s close friends and peers, Halperin brings the myth to life, and finally Halperin uncovers the never-before-told details of an incredible and audacious plan for Schwarzenegger to attempt to rewrite the Constitution and run for president of the United States.

    " Very interesting book! The author's a little hung up on himself and the content is pretty much all hearsay but it sure does paint an interesting picture for what its worth. I find it very odd to read a biography of someone who's still alive that's not an autobiography or memoir. "

    " Interesting take on the background of Arnie and how driven he is and determined to not be 2nd best in no matter what he does. "
