By now, you're probably heard about "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," the autobiography of action star and ex-California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The book, which hits stores today, chronicles Schwarzenegger's days as a bodybuilder, his rise to fame and — most notably — the recent scandal surrounding his affair and illegitimate son.

But as juicy as it sounds, "Total Recall" contains little more than what you've read in the papers. According to USA Today, the action star planned the book before the scandalous events of last year, and stated that "Less than one percent" of his memoir is about the controversial affair. He does, however, admit to another affair in the book, this time in 1985 with his "Red Sonja" co-star Brigitte Nielsen. Schwarzenegger's "hot affair," as he stated, happened after he moved in with Shriver but before the two were married. Nielsen, who later was married to Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone, apparently had no idea that her lover was in a serious relationship at the time.

It seems like there's only a bit of controversial material sandwiched between the covers of Schwarzenegger's new book. That being said, are you interested in reading the other 99 percent?
