Just an Ad for Tesla Stock

You will learn nothing from this, except Tesla stock will go up and up, and Elon Musk was a child prodigy and now a successful genius and a great boss. I listened to this only because I just finished The Great Race and The Powerhouse (both about the future of EV cars). Certainly not worth a Credit! Was it worth the $2.75? Hum…Nope. The narration is clear but way too peppy and too partial.

Tesla has a $25B market cap but is yet to show a profit. Maybe Tesla will be the next Google but this book will not help anyone decide.

One sided history, sort of

This would have been more interesting if it had quoted the "other side" more. It was pretty rah rah for Tesla, and Elon Musk.
I don't think they prescreened the narrator. She overpronounced words to distraction, and mispronounced many along the way. I kind of feel like I wasted five bucks. If you are learning English, you may find this to be easily understood, but don't base your spoken language on her accent!

Lame superficial fluff rah rah rah

I listened to this after listening to Elon Musk by Ashley Vance. Despite the bad reviews of this book I got it anyway. Poor choice.

Don’t waste your time on this. Listen to the unabridged Elon Musk by Ashley Vance.

pretty worthless...

Pretty worthless listen, just an Add for Tesla really, nothing about the Company foundation or rise, no how to etc. I should have been suspect when when a female was chosen to narrate, sounds like a TV commercial :-(
