Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and ...
Author: Ashlee Vance Publisher: Ecco Press ISBN: 9780062469670
ELON MUSK is currently one of the best innovators, not only in the Silicon Valley, but around the world, hands down.
This book is filled with his ideas, dreams, and visions. His commitment to making the world a better place can be considered a noble cause.
I simply cannot imagine how a person who faced multiple bankruptcies still has the composure to never lose his vision and his imagination.
The story of Musk teaches readers that when you think that you have reached your limit, you should push even harder. That’s how he come up with unimaginable things like space travel, and an auto pilot car.
I must say the author has also done a good job writing this biography. It covers more of Musk’s ideas, projects and work rather than his personal life.
The book touches more on Musk’s business and engineering skills, where Vance does an excellent job covering this aspect of his career, depicting perfectly how Musk explains literal rocket science, and the possibility of how electric cars can be fixed through the internet.
Vance also outlines how Musk manages his company from the product development stage onwards, adhering to a strict management style, and being thrifty with funding.
I would highly recommend this book to those who are interested in business start-ups, innovations and technology, or those who would like to know how Elon Musk got to where he is today.
After all, SpaceX is still on-track to put a man on Mars. I am sure there will be much more to come. – Amirul Hakim
