Arnold Schwarzenegger has a book deal.

The bodybuilder, actor, former California governor and estranged husband of Maria Shriver has an agreement with Simon&Schuster to publish a memoir in October 2012. According to Simon & Schuster, the book’s working title is “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.” Schwarzenegger is collaborating with Peter Petre, who has worked on best sellers by former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf. Schwarzenegger began the book last year.

Financial terms were not disclosed. The publisher is billing the book as “a larger-than-life portrait of his illustrious, controversial and ever-entertaining life in and out of the public eye.”
