Mel Foster's reading is excellent. He deftly handles this text, which tells the story of Arnold Schwarzenegger from his days in Austria to his success in Hollywood. His narration helps the work move quickly. Foster's vocal characterizations, especially his version of Arnold himself, are particularly good. The text tells the good, the bad, and the ugly about the current California governor, although there's more good than bad and ugly. The author has written several celebrity biographies, and this work is more about the rise of a celebrity than the election of a governor. There is much on his early life, which means that there are more details about bodybuilding than most would probably like. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
