"For anyone interested in technology, entrepreneurship or the price of greatness, Ashlee Vance's new book is a tremendous look into arguably the world's most important entrepreneur. Vance paints an unforgettable picture of Musk's unique personality, insatiable drive and ability to thrive through hardship. The book bursts with telling anecdotes and quotes that illuminate who Musk is" (The Washington Post)
"Exhaustively reported . . . this work will likely serve as the definitive account of a man whom so far we've seen mostly through caricature. By the final pages, too, any reader will sense the need to put comparisons to Steve Jobs aside. Give Musk credit. There is no one like him" (New York Times)
"A book that is smart, light on its feet and possesses a crunchy thoroughness. . . . Mr Vance delivers a well-calibrated portrait of Mr Musk, so that we comprehend both his friends and his enemies. It's a book with many ancillary pleasures. Mr Vance brings us up to date on the states of green energy and space launches. He also veers away from his subject just often enough, offering profiles of the frequently brilliant people who work alongside Mr Musk. The best thing Mr Vance does in this book, though, is tell Mr Musk's story simply and well" (The New York Times)

He has challenged and changed industries which nobody believed could have changed - banking, automobiles, and space travel. And for anyone who believes in luck, after reading this book you will see that Elon had lot of bad luck while trying to achieve his dreams, but he never gave up and destiny had to give up instead and give him what he wants. He is a true hero of our generation. Must Read!!
Most of Elon's story is available on the internet and in his talks but yes the book does go into the backdrop of the work and people issues that went behind at his companies.
Wish there was more written about his personality and the way he and his mind works.
Plus point is that there's good content from the people who worked alongside him and good details of his childhood.
Ashlee Vance has properly maintained everyday English and thus makes the book enjoyable to read.
Whilst the content becomes tepid in some sections, it's biggest plus is the message that gets conveyed "if you have the balls to break convention and make a dash for it the universe does part way for you"
Some bit of hero worship is inevitable and some part of the thorny sides of the hero are glossed over, but easily blame it on human foibles !
Every entrepreneur must take time off for this book and ask a very fundamental questions that is what I am doing truly going to make that difference ??
Go for this one !
Elon Musk is quite a polarising figure, but I find him to be quite inspiring, as he has directly or indirectly made so many breakthroughs, that are no longer seen in those fields. For that reason, people should read this book.

Zip2 and Paypal growth story were the best part of the book.
However, the book slowed down at SpaceX.
It was too technical and drag.Read more
