  • My Favorite TASCHEN Book Is...
Arnold Schwarzenegger

„Seit über vier Jahrzehnten lebe ich nun in Los Angeles, dennoch entdecke ich immer wieder etwas Neues, wenn ich dieses TASCHEN-Buch aufschlage. Es zeigt, was ich an dieser Stadt liebe – Muscle Beach, Palmen, die Hollywood Hills – und schafft es sogar, das gut aussehen zu lassen, was ich an ihr verabscheue. So erinnert die herrliche Karte des alten, ausgedehnten öffentlichen Nahverkehrssystems – das man so leichtfertig verschrottet hat – daran, wie kurzsichtig meine glamoursüchtige Heimatstadt sein kann. Benedikt Taschen hat das Unmögliche vollbracht: Er hat einer schnelllebigen Stadt, die immer dem neusten Trend nachhetzt, ein Denkmal von Dauer gesetzt.“
