Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story – Arnold Schwarzenegger


This features first on my list as an example of exactly what constitutes an insufficient memoir. Essentially, this is 600 pages of Arny justifying every decision he made during his political career (that I’m pretty sure no-one cares about) and telling us about all of his many excellent sexual conquests. It’s quite funny if you read it in his voice yes, but in terms of being a credible slice of intriguing and charismatic literature- no, just no.
