    "DO NOT BUY THIS - IT IS A HIGH SCHOOL TERM PAPER!"
    Would you try another book from B Storm and/or Jason Lovett?

    Maybe in about 10 years when they finish school!


    Has Elon Musk turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Elon Musk is interesting - this book is not


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Lovett?

    Anybody


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I just wasted my money!


    Any additional comments?

    Isn't there any quality control at Audible.com?

    Story
    "Reads like a fan boy novel"
    Would you try another book from B Storm and/or Jason Lovett?

    I feel no real research was done to make this book. Most everything stated can be learned from Mr. Musk's Wikipedia page. The only thing I learned from this book was a bit more about the history of the hyper loop. Jason Lovett's reading was nearly unbearable, his constant up and down tone as he reads made it hard to concentrate on the already dreadful story. I was hoping to learn more about the drama Musk has gone through. I wanted to learn more about the Pay Pal story, More on his fight with the US car manufacturers on Tesla's distribution rights. His battle to get the NASA contract for SpaceX to deliver goods to the ISS. None of these issues were brought up.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting part of this story was the very brief history of the hyper loop, which is sad because this book is about Musk. There are no personal interviews with him at all. The least interesting part is the constant Musk self circle jerk the author is doing. Ending a lot of the short chapters with a "Musk is a walking deity" statement.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Lovett?

    Anyone who doesn't speak with such an inflection would have been a better choice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I'm sure Mr. Musk's life will become a movie at some point. However I would not go see it, not unless he does something more interesting.

    "Over simple"

    This feels like the cliff notes version of Elon's biography I would suggest getting the full biography to get any sense of Elon Musk

    Story
    "Holy Vocal Fry Batman!"

    Amateur writing made even worse by amateur reading. I felt as though the majority of sentences were punctuated with vocal fry. Perhaps some listeners would not be bothered by that, but I found Lovett's reading was so distracting I could barely listen to the story. When words did punctuate through the performance it was because I've heard better story telling vocabulary from my 6 year old niece.

    "Horrible. The reader is so bad it makes it painful to listen"

    Do not buy this book. So unprofessional. It was too difficult to listen to I could not finish the book. There are other books on Elon that are far better.

    "sounded like the author was reading Wikipedia"

    Thankfully it was very short. nothing there that isn't on Elon Musk's Wikipedia profile. Best wait for a proper biography.
