Interesting but not what I expected

Covers a lot of different topics in many industries
Very interesting and facilitating technology discussed. Some sections drag on a bit and you feel like you're watching a documentary. Good research and evidence presented but you have no doubt on the political leanings of the author as he paints one side favorable and the other to be ignorant, science-stopping roadblocks. However, good book overall that gets you thinking about the technology of tomorrow.

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.
