    Elon Musk is not exactly a name that rolls easily off the tongue, like say Tony Stark, the fictional person to whom he is most often compared, or even Steve Jobs, a real-world visionary, whose mantle Musk now wears. There is no question that Musk is a special individual, someone with B...

    Yes I am still crushing on Elon Musk. I'm counting on him to deliver on his promise of building a city on Mars. The time has come for us to destroy yet another planet. ...

    Excellent and inspiring. This book brought up one key question: do you have to be a bit reckless to be good? Musk was reckless in two areas: in the risks he took, and the way that he manages his companies. As for the first, the number of near-death experiences that Tesla, SpaceX and...

    3.5 Stars I like the can-do attitude Vance took with hounding Musk and wearing him down till he agreed to cooperate with this biography. I also appreciated all the "Holy crap, Musk is CRAZY. CRAZY like a fox," moments I had while reading this. The only thing that keeps this from bei...

    Space. Renewable Energy. Internet. This is a man after my own heart. Out of all the super entrepreneurs and technological legends of the modern era, Musk ticks all the boxes on my dreams and passions, particularly space. Space has always been the frontier that intrigues me the most...

    Let me offer this thought: SpaceX is the coolest and most exciting company in the world at this moment in time. Yes, Tesla is also extremely cool. And inspiring. But nothing can beat that feeling of power, wonder and deep inspiration that SpaceX will give you as soon as you start to...

    4.5 stars Billionaire Elon Musk is a businessman, engineer, and inventor with a radical vision for the future of mankind. In fact Musk wants nothing less than to establish a human colony on Mars.....with a view toward exploring Jupiter's moon Europa someday. Musk fears there ...

    This is an incredibly inspiring book, a important look into a game-changing worldview, and a valuable lesson to the world. As Musk says, "If something is important enough, even if the odds are against you, you should still do it." Strangely enough, I've followed Space X' and Tesla's...

    I?m super interested in Elon Musk and this book provided me insight into the way he thinks, what drives him, how he gets things done, etc. Some small criticisms-- There were times I noticed information that was being repeated, which made it feel like Vance may have written eac...

    Ironically, one of the quotes that made the biggest impression on me in Elon Musk: Inventing the Future didn't come from Musk, but from data scientist Jeffrey Hammerbacher: "The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads." I mean, da-amn. This is so ...

    A very insightful account on a man who wants to reach the stars (well, Mars) and save humanity from extinction and global warming, yet often falls short from showing a modicum of kindness toward his employees and prone to going ballistic over typos in emails and abbreviations. Oh, did ...

    I usually don?t write reviews for books but this time I had to. Elon Musk is arguably one of the best innovators in the Silicon Valley if not the world. Before reading this book, I just thought of him as a rich start-up dude who makes rocket ships and electric cars. I wasn?t wrong ...

    I wish I could rate this book 2.5 stars. It's a great long read Atlantic or Wired piece about a visionary person with an interesting childhood that is at the forefront of a technology shift and an unsuccessful emotional biography. There are a ton of details about Elon's upbringing, esp...

    Ashlee Vance covers the multiple aspects of Elon Musk?s life and work. Since Musk?s work consumes the better part of his life, most of the text is on his business projects, each of which is a breakthrough for its time. His South African childhood was marked by bullies at school,...

    At first, the idea of reading 380-page autobiography about a technology-savvy made me downhearted. However, eventually I extremely relish this book that I cannot put it down. Takeaways: 1. There is nothing wrong about being an introvert and enjoying reading books. You will find a l...

    Amazing book, if you liked the biography of Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos this book is a must-read! I found it very inspiring and motivational, Elon Musk has the potential to change the world we live in forever. His vision and commitment to make the world a better place through is mind-blow...

    A very well written biography about a man more spectacular than most known superheroes. Be it in intelligence, leadership, interesting backstory, character flaws, Grecian tragedy - it's all there. A man who will stop at nothing to achieve what he envisions. There have been adversaries ...

    Que o autor do livro comešou de um ponto relativamente cÚtico e terminou defendendo o Elon Musk contra quase tudo fala muito sobre a figura que ele representa. Um livro que saiu em um ˇtimo momento, quando a Tesla Motors deu a volta por cima e os lanšamentos da SpaceX passaram a da...

    I devoured this book in one go as soon as it was released. It's a biography of my hero, the real-life Iron Man, after all. PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity and all his other endeavors are covered in this book in an engaging way. I highly recommend this book. ...

    The only book earned my bathroom counter position, incredibly inspiring, a important look into a game-changing business strategy, and a valuable lesson to the world. Having met him in person, his family also brought many influence. ...

    ?He points out that one of the really tough things is figuring out what questions to ask,? Musk said. ?Once you figure out the question, then the answer is relatively easy. I came to the conclusion that really we should aspire to increase the scope and scale of human consciousn...

    "Elon Musk had built the automotive equivalent of the iPhone. "....., among other things. This book was interesting & informative. It gave me, what I thought was, a complete picture of the man & genius that is Elon Musk. I came out having great admiration for his BRILLIANCE...

    Really enjoying this book, but I'm struck by how Musk, like Jobs and Bezos, is a total asshole. A Space-X employee missed a work event to witness his child's birth, and Musk calls him on the carpet for it. He expects his employees to have no life and discards people as soon as they're ...

    Ironically, one of the quotes that made the biggest impression on me in Elon Musk: Inventing the Future didn't come from Musk, but from data scientist Jeffrey Hammerbacher: "The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads." I mean, da-amn. This is so ...

    I usually don?t write reviews for books but this time I had to. Elon Musk is arguably one of the best innovators in the Silicon Valley if not the world. Before reading this book, I just thought of him as a rich start-up dude who makes rocket ships and electric cars. I wasn?t wrong ...

    Ashlee Vance covers the multiple aspects of Elon Musk?s life and work. Since Musk?s work consumes the better part of his life, most of the text is on his business projects, each of which is a breakthrough for its time. His South African childhood was marked by bullies at school,...

    At first, the idea of reading 380-page autobiography about a technology-savvy made me downhearted. However, eventually I extremely relish this book that I cannot put it down. Takeaways: 1. There is nothing wrong about being an introvert and enjoying reading books. You will find a l...

    Elon Musk is not exactly a name that rolls easily off the tongue, like say Tony Stark, the fictional person to whom he is most often compared, or even Steve Jobs, a real-world visionary, whose mantle Musk now wears. There is no question that Musk is a special individual, someone with B...

    Excellent and inspiring. This book brought up one key question: do you have to be a bit reckless to be good? Musk was reckless in two areas: in the risks he took, and the way that he manages his companies. As for the first, the number of near-death experiences that Tesla, SpaceX and...

    3.5 Stars I like the can-do attitude Vance took with hounding Musk and wearing him down till he agreed to cooperate with this biography. I also appreciated all the "Holy crap, Musk is CRAZY. CRAZY like a fox," moments I had while reading this. The only thing that keeps this from bei...

    Space. Renewable Energy. Internet. This is a man after my own heart. Out of all the super entrepreneurs and technological legends of the modern era, Musk ticks all the boxes on my dreams and passions, particularly space. Space has always been the frontier that intrigues me the most...

    Let me offer this thought: SpaceX is the coolest and most exciting company in the world at this moment in time. Yes, Tesla is also extremely cool. And inspiring. But nothing can beat that feeling of power, wonder and deep inspiration that SpaceX will give you as soon as you start to...

    4.5 stars Billionaire Elon Musk is a businessman, engineer, and inventor with a radical vision for the future of mankind. In fact Musk wants nothing less than to establish a human colony on Mars.....with a view toward exploring Jupiter's moon Europa someday. Musk fears there ...

    This is an incredibly inspiring book, a important look into a game-changing worldview, and a valuable lesson to the world. As Musk says, "If something is important enough, even if the odds are against you, you should still do it." Strangely enough, I've followed Space X' and Tesla's...

    I?m super interested in Elon Musk and this book provided me insight into the way he thinks, what drives him, how he gets things done, etc. Some small criticisms-- There were times I noticed information that was being repeated, which made it feel like Vance may have written eac...

    Ironically, one of the quotes that made the biggest impression on me in Elon Musk: Inventing the Future didn't come from Musk, but from data scientist Jeffrey Hammerbacher: "The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads." I mean, da-amn. This is so ...

    A very insightful account on a man who wants to reach the stars (well, Mars) and save humanity from extinction and global warming, yet often falls short from showing a modicum of kindness toward his employees and prone to going ballistic over typos in emails and abbreviations. Oh, did ...

    I usually don?t write reviews for books but this time I had to. Elon Musk is arguably one of the best innovators in the Silicon Valley if not the world. Before reading this book, I just thought of him as a rich start-up dude who makes rocket ships and electric cars. I wasn?t wrong ...

    I wish I could rate this book 2.5 stars. It's a great long read Atlantic or Wired piece about a visionary person with an interesting childhood that is at the forefront of a technology shift and an unsuccessful emotional biography. There are a ton of details about Elon's upbringing, esp...

    Ashlee Vance covers the multiple aspects of Elon Musk?s life and work. Since Musk?s work consumes the better part of his life, most of the text is on his business projects, each of which is a breakthrough for its time. His South African childhood was marked by bullies at school,...

    At first, the idea of reading 380-page autobiography about a technology-savvy made me downhearted. However, eventually I extremely relish this book that I cannot put it down. Takeaways: 1. There is nothing wrong about being an introvert and enjoying reading books. You will find a l...

    Amazing book, if you liked the biography of Steve Jobs or Jeff Bezos this book is a must-read! I found it very inspiring and motivational, Elon Musk has the potential to change the world we live in forever. His vision and commitment to make the world a better place through is mind-blow...

    A very well written biography about a man more spectacular than most known superheroes. Be it in intelligence, leadership, interesting backstory, character flaws, Grecian tragedy - it's all there. A man who will stop at nothing to achieve what he envisions. There have been adversaries ...

    I devoured this book in one go as soon as it was released. It's a biography of my hero, the real-life Iron Man, after all. PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity and all his other endeavors are covered in this book in an engaging way. I highly recommend this book. ...

    The only book earned my bathroom counter position, incredibly inspiring, a important look into a game-changing business strategy, and a valuable lesson to the world. Having met him in person, his family also brought many influence. ...

    ?He points out that one of the really tough things is figuring out what questions to ask,? Musk said. ?Once you figure out the question, then the answer is relatively easy. I came to the conclusion that really we should aspire to increase the scope and scale of human consciousn...

    Really enjoying this book, but I'm struck by how Musk, like Jobs and Bezos, is a total asshole. A Space-X employee missed a work event to witness his child's birth, and Musk calls him on the carpet for it. He expects his employees to have no life and discards people as soon as they're ...

    I was really looking forward to reading this book and finding more things about Elon Musk. However, I believe I should make a clear distinction between the book and the person. Elon Musk is a very interesting individual: he has a vision and has worked really hard to be in the position ...

    A well-done business biography with direct access to Musk that depicts him as a "force of nature" maniacally focused on solving acute energy resource problems and making the human species interplanetary. The incredible success of Musk, however, has not come without ongoing personal sac...
