Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future By Ashlee Vance

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

Mr. Musk is an incredible personage. One part Steve Jobs, one part Tony Stark the man is something truly incredible.  What this man has accomplished from a green perspective is truly phenomenal.  He has been able to capture the attention of Capitalists around the world that have always turned away from a heavily government subsidized industry. Even me that have pushed back for the same reasons stated above, have considered purchasing a Tesla Model S.  Although a bit pricy, I want to do the calculations to see if it is a wash when adding the savings of gas. 

Musk, along with his SpaceX team have accomplished amazing things regarding space flight.  The company's resolve to make there own parts after having more traditional aerospace companies fail to deliver at the speed and quality Musk demands is amazing.  It's funny how back in the Rockefeller days, people accused him of monopoly because he bought companies that made and produced the products he used to develop oil. Today Musk is ordained as a genius in business; man how times have changed. Even if Musk stops everything he is doing today, he will have already left his mark on the world. 

This book covers the life of Musk's family as well as Musk and his brother, his challenges, dreams and the attainment of those dreams. This book is a great read and extremely motivational.  I gave it to my 10 years old which enjoys Quantum Mechanics.  I am sure this book will inspire him to follow his dreams.
