The inspirational book “Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life” by Arnold Schwarzenegger debuts on October 10. In order to introduce his new book, Arnold Schwarzenegger used a famous prop. In a video posted to Instagram on Monday, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 76, is seen piercing the seal on a box containing copies of his book Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life with the sword from his 1982 film Conan the Barbarian. “I got the first box of my books, so I brought the whole team to inspect them,” he captioned his image. In the video, Schwarzenegger also displayed copies of the book to his cherished animals, including the miniature ponies Whiskey, Lulu, and Schnelly. “Fantastic. Be Useful, it’s out now. In the video, Schwarzenegger says something. “The first boxed package of Be Useful is now available!”
“Lulu, look at this; isn’t it interesting? Whiskey, take a look at this,” he then instructed the animals gathered around him as he held up a copy of the book. He said, offering the animals — and himself — cookies from the table the box was placed on. “Even I need a cookie for that one,” he said.
One of the bodybuilder-turned-actor’s early hits in Hollywood was Conan the Barbarian. The John Milius-directed movie had the fifteenth-highest domestic box office take that year. For Conan the Destroyer from 1984, Schwarzenegger returned to the part. The book Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life by Arnold Schwarzenegger will be available next Tuesday. The term Schwarzenegger’s father used regularly to raise him in Austria and which he also used to raise his five children serves as the book’s subtitle.

When asked how his kids, Katherine, 33, Christina, 32, Patrick, 30, Christopher, 26, and Joseph, 26, with ex-wife Mildred Baena, felt about being instructed to “be useful” as children, Schwarzenegger recently told PEOPLE, “Today they have very humorous stories.
” Lyla, Katherine’s 3-year-old daughter with Chris Pratt, arrives, and Katherine tells her, “I have told you not to put the shoes there. Since you are aware of what Daddy did when I twice left my shoes by the stand in front of the fireplace, please don’t leave them there. When he torched them in front of me for the third time, I started crying, Schwarzenegger remembered. “Identical to Patrick. He said, “[When he didn’t make his own bed], I unlocked the door to the balcony, scooped up the mattress, and threw it down with the bedsheets, the pillows, everything. “So there were times when I practiced discipline. Maria created harmony, but she was also incredibly disciplined, especially in her approach to education. They constantly bring up those kinds of topics [today] with hysterical laughter and joke about them to other people, which is funny.
