In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley's most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs - a real-life Tony Stark - and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new makers.

It's so nice to be able to get a glimpse into what makes Musk and his companies succeed while we are witnessing it unfold. We could all use a bit more of what he represents.

This is easily the most impactful business book I "read" last year (and I read quite a few). It helped me gain understanding and insight into my own motives, belief systems and values. These insights have already had a dramatic (and positive) impact on my personal and professional life. I'm having my entire team read it.
And I love the fact that Stan Slap narrates this himself. You can sense his passion and conviction in every word. Includes well-selected, real-world examples that help reinforce the principles. Also, the deeply personal and relevant stories shed light on the author's background and perspectives (which I appreciated). Time very well spend indeed. High five for Slap!
