Product description


"[A] spirited and riveting biography."--Wall Street Journal

"[T]his 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

"Fascinating and superbly researched..."--The Guardian UK

"Mr. Vance tells the stories of both SpaceX and Tesla with intricacy and insight. . . . What does come through is a sense of legitimate wonder at what humans can accomplish when they aim high, and aim weird.--Dwight Garner, New York Times

"The SpaceX and Tesla founder certainly sees setbacks as an unavoidable part of innovation. But a brilliant new biography paints a picture of him as an obsessive, intolerant perfectionist."--Financial Times

From the Back Cover

Veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance offers an unprecedented look into the remarkable life of the most daring entrepreneur of our time. Elon Musk paints a portrait of a complex man who has renewed American industry and sparked new levels of innovation--from PayPal to Tesla, SpaceX, and SolarCity--overcoming hardship, earning billions, and making plenty of enemies along the way.
