The Book Guide® Editor
The book is a pep talk that is both scattershot and charming. Schwarzenegger shares personal stories and anecdotes to illustrate his points, but the book lacks a clear structure and focus. The book is most compelling when Schwarzenegger writes from his own perspective, a voice that valorizes both intellectual curiosity and the thrill of getting absolutely shredded. However, he occasionally undermines his attempts at blunt, tell-it-like-it-is honesty by succumbing to the genre’s more annoying tropes.
