Arnold: The Education Of A Bodybuilder takes readers into the early life of the now world-famous Arnold Schwarzenegger. His early life spent in Austria was a far cry from the life he lives now. It was a simple world back then for the celebrity, who at the time wasn't the muscular man he is now.
Initially, as Arnold describes himself in the book, he was quite skinny and lacked an interest for team sports. He fancied activities that required only individual effort. Bodybuilding, back then, lacked the popularity that it has amassed now. But, Arnold took a liking to it when he first attended gym at the age of 13. The size and strength of the bodybuilders inspired him to take up the sport.
While the first part of the book deals with the various aspects of Arnold's journey as he kept climbing the ladder of the bodybuilding world, the second part features Arnold himself discussing some of the secrets of his bodybuilding success. Step-by-step methods are provided by the actor, who emphasizes on the need for bodybuilding to ensure good health. Dietary discipline is also discussed. This part features not just exercises, but illustrations as well, featuring the icon himself.
