In a recent video, Arnold Schwarzenegger announced the upcoming release of his new book, “Be Useful,” set to hit the shelves on October 10, 2023. The Hollywood icon, former bodybuilder, and ex-governor of California shared his excitement about the project and promised to personally autograph tens of thousands of copies for fans who pre-order the book.
“Be Useful” is a collection of the seven rules that Schwarzenegger believes are essential for achieving success and realizing one’s true purpose in life. Drawing from his own experiences of constant reinvention and extraordinary accomplishments, Arnold aims to provide a guide for anyone seeking to make a meaningful impact on the world.
The video features Arnold discussing his inspiration for the book, recounting how his father’s advice to “be useful” guided him through the various stages of his life. From his humble beginnings in rural Austria to his meteoric rise as a bodybuilder, movie star, and eventually, a political leader, Schwarzenegger credits his relentless drive and the lessons he learned along the way for his success.
Never afraid of a big challenge, Arnold also promised fans that he would be promoting the book “all around the World”. We can only hope that he will be doing a global book tour and stopping by a local bookstore near you.

Signed Copies of Schwarzenegger’s Last Book Were Scarce
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s previous book, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story,” saw the release of limited signed copies, a stark contrast to his upcoming book “Be Useful,” for which he has pledged to sign tens of thousands of copies. Some autographed hardcover editions of “Total Recall” are still available for fans to purchase from Premiere Collectibles.
“Total Recall” provides a detailed account of Schwarzenegger’s incredible journey from his childhood in Austria to his rise as a global icon in bodybuilding, Hollywood, and politics. This intimate and revealing autobiography captures the essence of Arnold’s resilience and determination, which have become the hallmarks of his life and career.
Each signed copy comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, ensuring that buyers receive a genuine autographed edition of the book.
The sale of limited signed copies of “Total Recall” highlights the demand for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s personal touch on his works. With the upcoming release of “Be Useful” and the commitment to sign tens of thousands of copies, it is evident that Schwarzenegger is aware of his fans’ desires and aims to cater to their enthusiasm for his life story and wisdom.
The High Cost of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Autograph
The wide availability of signed copies of “Be Useful” will represent a sea change in the market for Arnold’s autograph. Private signings with Arnold Schwarzenegger are rare, making opportunities to get his graph few and far between. One such memorable occasion took place on October 27, 2018, when Arnold made his first-ever appearance at a comic convention – the Alamo City Comic Con (ACCC) in San Antonio, Texas. Fans eager to meet the iconic star could purchase the exclusive “Judgment Day” VIP package for $1,250, which included one photo op (for up to two people) and one autograph.
The event’s organizers later made an additional 500 photo ops available for individual sale, much to the disappointment of those who had already bought the VIP package. In an effort to appease these fans, Arnold agreed to sign two items per VIP pass instead of just one, as originally promised. However, this last-minute change left some scrambling to find a second item for him to sign.
Once the market is flooded with signed copies of “Be Useful”, the days of paying well over a grand for his autograph will be far behind us.
