"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)

Top Customer Reviews
His unusual upbringing gives some insight into his incredible capacity for risk taking.
This book is well written and gives a good picture of Elon and his amazing life. I can recommend it unreservedly.
Interesting information on his early family life, how he made his first fortune and used it as a springboard for his incredibly bold plans to help humanity.
Someone who wants to change the world for the better, but is hyper-competitive and hyper-logical.
The stories behind Spacex and Tesla are also engrossing and thrilling.
The information on his personal life revealing.
However all in all a very enjoyable and balanced book looking at Elon Musks past, present and future - both in a professional and personal sense. One that had me intrigued to find out more.
