Shriver would not comment to60 Minutesabout the interview or the book, which Schwarzenegger says she has not read.

"She knows that it's about my whole life and that I would not write a book and kind of leave out that part and make people feel like, 'Well, wait a minute. Are we just getting a book about his success stories and not talk about his failures?' ... I wanted to write a book about me."
