This is a good listen. Smart, but easy to follow if your multitasking. Thrilling and romantic, without the stereo typical male / female roles prevalent in this genre.

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.

The army does not want you to listen to this book. It does not want to advertise its detention system that coddles enemy fighters while putting American soldiers at risk. It does not want to reveal the new lawyered-up Pentagon war ethic that prosecutes US soldiers and marines while setting free spies who kill Americans. This very system ambushed Captain Roger Hill and his men.

An uncomfortable truth can be the most freeing thing, for it brings clarity to the deepest part of a man that knows there is something wrong with the world.

In an era of fake Social Justice this book could be the spark of a true movement that brings accountability to those in power.

In a nation that all to often tries to legislate morality the truth is that it is men like the men in Dog Company that plant roots of honesty and integrity into the American People.
