Arnold Schwarzenegger is writing a memoir for release in October 2012, according to a statement from Simon & Schuster. Tentatively titled Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, the book will discuss the breakup of his marriage to Maria Shriver in addition to his youth in Austria and his work in bodybuilding, film, and politics. A source told PEOPLE that the book will “not be a tell-all.”

Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp said, “Truly, Arnold is one of the most fascinating figures of our time, and one of the greatest success stories in the world.

Nobody has a life story even close to his.” The memoir will be co-written by Peter Petre, formerly the executive editor of Fortune, who also helped with books by Alan Greenspan and Norman Schwarzkopf.
