Arnold Schwarzeneggerby Jeff C. Young
Known as the larger-than-life superstar of movies such as The Terminator and True Lies, Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in a small village in Austria. The son of a strict disciplinarian who put heavy demands on his son, Arnold always knew that he wanted more than an ordinary life in his small hometown. He wanted to be rich and famous, and he wanted to be the best, and he would stop at nothing to get what he wanted.
After finding his purpose and drive in the punishing sport of competitive body building, Schwarzenegger pursued his every goal with unyielding determination, whether the challenge was achieving the title of Mr. Universe, or becoming one of the world's most popular movie stars.
When he was elected governor of California in 2003 in a special recall election, Arnold Schwarzenegger, a political novice, faced a skeptical press, tough legislators, and the scrutiny of the nation. But Schwarzenegger took on this new challenge as he's taken on all others, and he stands to become an iconic political and cultural figure in American history.
