Book Review
Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn't competed as a bodybuilder since he won the Mr. Olympia title in 1980, but he remains the sport's No. 1 icon. He hosts an annual bodybuilding contest in Columbus, Ohio, and allows a column to be ghost-written under his name in a muscle magazine. Today's bodybuilders may have bigger muscles than Arnold ever did, but everyone inside and outside the iron game gives him credit for exponentially broadening the popularity of physique training.

With this updated Encyclopedia (it was originally published in 1985), Schwarzenegger wraps his huge arms around the entire sport. He hits the history of bodybuilding, the champions (he's quite generous in his praise of predecessors, contemporaries, and successors alike), the training systems. Some of the information is more bodybuilding lore than science; for...

From Publishers Weekly
America's love affair with machine brutalism spills over into this somewhat smitten biography of its foremost icon. Leamer (The Kennedy Women) chronicles Schwarzenegger's progress from bodybuilder to action-movie megastar, then California governor, visiting along the way his romance with Kennedy scion Maria Shriver and feud with rival Hollywood muscle-head Sylvester Stallone. It's a tale of relentless self-promotion: Schwarzenegger's fanatical weight-lifting routines are nothing compared with his grueling publicity marathons, including 94 puff-piece interviews in one day for Last Action Hero. Leamer gives his subject a bombastically vain personality, then struggles to make it appealing. He celebrates Schwarzenegger's room-filling ebullience, his "emotional wisdom" and "agape." He discerns a "subtle, ironic...

Book Description

Here is his classic bestselling autobiography, which explains how the "Austrian Oak" came to the sport of bodybuilding and aspired to be the star he has become.

It was something I suddenly just seemed to reach out and find, as if I'd been crossing a suspended bridge and finally stepped off onto solid ground."

Reviewed with Karen Brandon's Arnold Schwarzenegger.Gr. 5-8. Remarkably similar in format, length, grade level, and content, these two biographies introduce Arnold Schwarzenegger from his childhood in Austria through his election as governor of California. Both books are informative and interesting, and they show their subject in a positive light while also discussing areas of controversy. Each includes photos, sidebars, and extensive source notes for the many quotes. Brandon's biography, from the People in the News series, appends a time line and an annotated lists of recommended books and Web sites. A 5-page source bibliography comments on 13 books.

From School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-This workmanlike biography recounts the basic facts of Schwarzenegger's life without much style or flair. There is some indication, gleaned primarily from quotes from the subject's own autobiography, that he is an individual with a huge ego and a touch of arrogance. But this is about as much insight as the book gives into the man's character. Bial mentions briefly that Schwarzenegger's father was a member of the Nazi party during World War II, without providing any additional comment or context or connecting this information with the actor's current charity work for Jewish causes. While an endnote acknowledges the author's sources, quotations within the text are not given specific citations. The book is illustrated with numerous black-and-white photographs, some of poor quality. Readers will be better...

Grade 7 Up–This biography covers Schwarzenegger's life and careers, beginning with his disciplined boyhood in a small Austrian town. Readers discover the secret of the man's success in becoming Mr. Universe, a Hollywood star, and the governor of California: confidence and dogged determination. The chapter "Going Hollywood" describes how he turned what some considered liabilities–that is, his accent, surname, and bodybuilder image–into trademarks. Schwarzenegger is portrayed as the consummate salesperson with relentless skill at marketing himself. Sidebars, quotes from numerous sources, and average-quality, black-and-white photos are included.–Ajoke' T. I.

From Publishers Weekly
Teaching is a calling, and Thomas-EL has enthusiastically answered the call. In his memoir, the educator, currently the principal of a Philadelphia elementary school, recounts the events that led him to a career in education. The author writes of experiences that would daunt many. Thomas-EL, the seventh of eight children, displayed intellectual promise early and was transferred to one of Philly's prominent magnet schools. He recounts how insecurity plagued him as he went from being at the top of his class in his old school to joining students who showed just as much intellectual prowess as he did. On top of dealing with a lack of self-confidence at this new school, Thomas-EL also felt the sting of racism for the first time. In energetic prose, he remembers the inspiration he found in teachers who connected him...

From Publishers Weekly
Brides- and grooms-to-be can best save their sanity by skipping the ceremony altogether, but short of that, their best option might be to pick up this empathetic advice book by Atkins, a psychologist and columnist for weddingchannel.com, and Gilbar, the Web site's former editor-in-chief. Using a reader-friendly Q&A format, they discuss a range of wedding-related issues, including stress, the bridal party, parents, future in-laws, money and religion. The authors talk, for example, about the roles that bridesmaids play in the process. "It can become too much," they admit. "More often than not, the bridesmaid ritual brings with it tension, irritation, and arguments that you don't need... And how do you feel? Sometimes betrayed, often let down, and almost always shocked at the changed behavior of women you...


Running Man

Mass Market Paperback

Book Review
Stephen King (writing as Richard Bachman) crafted The Running Man early in his career, though after such mega-hits as Carrie and The Shining. A bit of a departure from the supernatural horror that is most frequently associated with his work, the novel describes a science fiction dystopia where market capitalism and television game shows have spiraled out of control, and the separation between the haves and the have-nots has been formalized with separate currencies. King establishes characters quickly, creating sympathy in the first few pages for Ben Richards--whose 18-month-old baby girl is suffering from a horrible cough, perhaps pneumonia. Not able to afford medicine, Richards enters himself in the last-chance money-making scheme of the Free-Vee games. The games include Treadmill to Bucks, in which heart-attack prone...
