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.

I really enjoyed this book. I never understood how much he had to bring the right people together. i also like how the media portrays him as some fool and always doubts him. All he seems to do is prove them wrong. Even now in 2019 they continue to point out his obstacles. I seen this one article that labeled him a "broke billionaire". I believe this just points out the double standards we have today. It's ok to dream and think big, just not more then society will allow. I hope more people will be inspired and continue to take on more tasks and question the norm for everything. It is our duty for the future.

Fred Kofman's approach to leadership has little to do with the standard practices taught in business school and traditional books. Bringing together economics and business theroy, communications and conflict resolution, family counseling and mindfulness mediation, Kofman argues in The Meaning Revolution that our most deep-seated, unspoken and universal anxiety stems from our fear that our life is being wasted - that the end of life will overtake us when our song is still unsung. Material incentives - salary and benefits - account for perhaps 15% of employees' motivation at work.

I really enjoyed this book. I believe that people aren't held accountable and this taught me how to have others make a commitment. Its important to always be on the same page with co workers to provide a smooth transition towards your goal. I dont believe it's a heal all book, however, it does provide the reader with alternative methods of leadership. Thank you Fred Kofman.
