Publisher's Summary

It is important to take note of the innovative people who throughout history have been the faces of change. The problem is that we often don’t recognize those people until much later. Hindsight provides us with a clear and unobstructed view of who the movers and shakers were, but in the present, we can be so distracted by everything that’s happening - the various people and outlets competing for our attention - that we miss the game-changers.

Those who history tends to remember are the ones at the forefront of their field - the ones pushing humanity further than it’s been previously, stretching our limits and redefining what it means to live as a human being. From Dr. Marie Curie to Thomas Edison, the people exploring and pushing boundaries in the world are the ones we end up remembering.

Now more than ever, with our technologically advancing and dependent world, innovators and explorers of new avenues of tech and science and thinkers of how tech and science can affect our day-to-day lives are the people we need to follow - not just watch but emulate. Their success can be our success if we pay attention to their methods and their principles.

One such person is Elon Musk.

I would recommend this book

It's always great to learn about the background of people like Elon Musk. There seems to a direct co-relation of how Elon Musk does things now to the events in his previous years. That's a great achievement for this book since it allows to see this co-relation quite clearly.I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in biographies in general.

One Incredible Human Being!

What a great read (or I should say listen)! I've been a growing admirer of Elon for a good while now but knew so little about him - until now. Wow - what a guy! This could just as easily be a story of ten people's lives. I submit he just may be the most intelligent, driven, talented, insightful entrepreneurs ever. And the amount of personal information gathered for this book is incredible, very well organized and very nicely read. After being a Olivia Tomlinson admirer but concluding it's probably impossible to be a visionary and a nice guy this book shows even Elon can be as tough as need be to accomplish his goals. One of my all time favorite books about my all time favorite person.

A Genius for All Mankind

A fascinating look into a mi d that should be considered genius and expansive. Elon Musk's vision for humanity is the driving force behind everything that he does. Humanity on Mars, cheap travel to space, electric cars that anyone can appreciate, a Hyperloop system between large cities... Fantasy? If you bet that way, I don't like your chances against such a driven individual. One fascinating read and ride through the history of recent technology.

Fascinating

I enjoyed this look at a fascinating character who loves large ideas and can be larger than life. Recent events inspired me to read this biography, as I have been concerned for Elon's stability. After reading this (in spurts--not cover to cover) I think he just has a very intense personality, but seems likely to be alright. I'm glad, because we need people who are willing to take on large projects and push them through successfully to overcome our world's problems.

Wonderful read.

I am grateful for a human-like this. His accomplishments are exponentially bigger than the great CEOs of the past. He spends his money on his ideas and therefore his companies.

A great read

once you get past the initial few pages/chapters. That's because the beginning of the book is mostly about how Elon Musk is the only one doing something meaningful and everyone else is making useless stuff. The author appears to be fascinated by Elon Musk and doesn't come across as objective in the initial few chapters. But that goes away soon and the rest of the book is very well written.

Really good listen

The author has a true talent for writing and exposes Elon Musk in a realistic light. If I could choose 10 people I'd most like to have at an intimate dinner party, from the present or past, he would be on the list. He's a fascinating man, I like how he thinks and I love that he manifests his visions. It will be interesting to take a look at his accomplishments in another 10 or 20 yrs.

Interesting yet educaional.

If you are an entrepreneur or want to be one someday there is no doubt that Elon Musk is the best one to follow. who is not just like others who followed the traditional profitable way s of business but in every startup follows his dream and brings something new to the people of this world. Which is either changed the way of our living as well as how our society living or the course of our history.

Too short

This doesn't compare with the other audio books about Elon Musk. I would advise to look for an alternative.
