Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future Reviews

  • Will Byrnes
    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 BIG dreams and ...
  • Mark Bao
    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 earlier companies...

    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.

    3.5 StarsI 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 being a 4-star book i...

    Read for Book Riot's 2017 Read Harder challenge: #13 Read a nonfiction book about technologyThis book had its ups and downs for me: the high points being Elon's early years and how he got started in the business world with companies like PayPal. The low points were the loooong chapters detailing how...
  • Elizabeth
    I found the tale of Elon Musk's childhood all the way through Zip, Paypal, Solar City, SpaceX and Tesla fascinating and inspiring. One thing in particular stood out. He's not motivated by greed. I've met my share of entrepreneurs and there are countless motivations that power these people. Some are ...
