Arnold Schwarzenegger releases trailer for autobiography - video
Schwarzenegger reveals in the clip that his new book will trace his journey to becoming "the strongest, most muscular man in the world" and "one of the biggest action stars of all time".
"If my life was a movie, no-one would believe it. The directions I've chosen, the careers I have conquered," Schwarzenegger declared, adding: "I went from being The Terminator to being The Governator."
He closed by teasing: "But this story you know. So are you ready for the story you don't?"
Scwharzenegger signed to co-write Total Recall with Peter Petre for publisher Simon & Simon Schuster last September.
