562 Comment Elon Musk: How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future

  1. 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 the drive, talent, and money to make them happen But, like Jobs, and Stark for that matter, he might be an acquired taste on a personal level In Elon Musk Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic F [...]


  2. 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.


  3. 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 went through is almost a running joke throughout this story The Falcon 1 failed three times, exhausting the company s funds, before achieving a successful fourth flight Tesla avoided bankruptcy by taking [...]


  4. 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 is that the reporting and writing leans too heavily on idolatry There were passages where I literally cringed at how much of a fanboy Vance sounded like.


  5. 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 for a single man to dream of colonising Mars and actually doing all he can to make that a reality is just simply astounding And then of course, there is Tesla Aside from the clean energy technology which I am a huge propon [...]

  7. 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 understand what that company is actually doing As Vance says, SpaceX IS Elon Musk So who is this man How is it humanly possible to achieve what he has achieved What else can he achieve in the future Will he become the ri [...]

  9. 4.5 starsBillionaire 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 Marswith a view toward exploring Jupiter s moon Europa someday Musk fears there will be another mass extinction event like the asteroid that destroyed 75% of Earth s species at the Cretaceous Paleogene Boundary 65 million years ago and he wants people to have somewhere to go I agree with Musk that Earth is like [...]


  10. 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 progress for a very long time, but I never actually read many things about the person behind them I still cannot believe what a visionary Elon Musk is, and how persistent he s about anything he does He is a mad scientist, [...]


  11. 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 each chapter separately or without certainty of what order the chapters would be included in the book Also, while I liked the conversational tone of the writing, it was not what I m used to from biographies.A larger criticism I d [...]


  12. 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 true And it stung even because I m a marketer Where have we gone wrong as a generation Where is the passion and quest for knowledge What is the real purpose of innovation To improve mankind or to become wealthy Can we have [...]


  13. 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 mention he is downright mysoginistic as well He basically said all smart women must breed and he s the alpha in his marriage The book provides succinct insights on the situation surrounding the industries the mercur [...]


  14. 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 about that but this book helped me see all behind the curtains and the struggles he had to overcome to get where he is When you look at today s Tesla, you wouldn t know they were nearly bankrupt in 2008 if it wasn t for M [...]


  15. 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, especially about his father and brother, who always felt like a mystery to me I got a good understanding of how Elon s early mentor, a Canadian banking executive, gave him some insights towards starting X, a service I h [...]


  16. 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 lot of inspirations for your career Don t give up your childhood dream.2 Working hard is the only way that lead to success I vividly remember that he has to take about 170 flights a year Thanks for his hard work, he contribu [...]


  17. 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, hints of abuse at home and violence over apartheid in his area His mother has an interesting background there not much about his father Although his grim childhood is referred to as influential in his character, the sectio [...]


  18. 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 blowing Reading this book really helped me push myself past limits and work even harder It s not hard when your know there s someone like Elon putting everything he s got into his big vision, working 16 hours a day for w [...]


  19. A very well written biography about a man 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 and critics galore, but the Musk miracles march on.A very inspiring, enlightening and entertaining read Very highly recommend.


  20. Que o autor do livro come ou de um ponto relativamente c tico e terminou defendendo o Elon Musk contra quase tudo fala muito sobre a figura que ele representa Um livro que saiu em um timo momento, quando a Tesla Motors deu a volta por cima e os lan amentos da SpaceX passaram a dar certo timo pra entender como o Musk parecido ou diferente do Jobs uma excelente aula de futurologia e a diferen a que faz algu m ser dirigido por motiva es grandes e de longo prazo, em termos de como ele age e como rec [...]


  21. 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.


  22. 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.


  23. 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 consciousness in order to better understand what questions to ask The teenage Musk then arrived at his ultralogical mission statement The only thing that makes sense to do is strive for greater collective enlightenment, I usually don t r [...]


  24. 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 no longer useful Just a nightmare boss Not somebody I d ever want to work with Apparently I m not the only one who had this thought From NY Times The Bad Behavior of Visionary LeadersAs I was reading Ashlee Vance s E [...]


  25. 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, drive and tenacity.A true visionary with a mission Mars Musk would have mounted the most viable charge against global warming, while also providing people with an escape plan just in case He would have brought a substantial amount of cruci [...]

  28. I was really looking forward to reading this book and finding 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 where he is now The book is just a decent read, like a very long magazine article with some photos or a short story To my defence, this is the first biography I read about one of my contemporaries.What I enjoyed is the fa [...]


  29. 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 sacrifice, and the book is not simple hagiography it touches on the cost of this focus to work relations and personal relations his marriages and children What makes Musk unique as a human being, and such a fascinating s [...]
