Product description

Review

[A] spirited and riveting biography.

-- "Wall Street Journal"

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 Book Review"

An essential read...a riveting portrait of Silicon Valley's most driven entrepreneur since Steve Jobs.

-- "Financial Times"

It's clear that this new Musk bio delivers the goods...Vance provides a wealth of insights about how this tech titan operates.

-- "Forbes"

Does an admirable job of balancing the highs and lows of Musk's outsized personality. He writes a thought-provoking chronicle that doesn't suffer for being only a first act, as Musk is still leading the field in innovation.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

Vance paints a complicated picture of a complicated man...Throughout, Vance elucidates Musk's unusual combination of vision, determination, intelligence, whimsy, and ruthlessness that enabled these successes...Vance ably conveys the reality of this man who is both a dreamer and a doer.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Fred Sanders narrates this smartly written biography with the right balance of gravitas and entertainment value, providing accents for some of the major characters including a convincing South African accent for the story's star...The combination of great narration, well-written and well-researched content, and a bigger-than-life subject propels this nuanced work into the upper atmosphere of audiobook biographies. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.

-- "AudioFile"

Elon Musk is a man after my own heart: a risk taker undaunted by setbacks and ever driven to ensure a bright future for humanity. Ashlee Vance's stellar biography captures Musk's remarkable life story and irrepressible spirit.

-- "Richard Branson, English businessman and investor"

More than any entrepreneur since Steve Jobs, Elon Musk sets the bar for what's possible in technology. We are fortunate to have our very own real-life Tony Stark in Elon, and here, for the first time, we have his story vividly told.

-- "March Andreessen, venture capitalist and web pioneer"

The book Elon Musk is a compelling firsthand, behind-the-scenes look at how Tesla, SpaceX, and SolarCity were formed and how Elon works to bring his passions to fruition. He is a unique character changing the world, and Ashlee Vance's book is a riveting account of how Elon's game-changing ideas have been conceived and born, and now flourish.

-- "J. Craig Venter, PhD, first human genome sequencer and creator of synthetic life"
