Publisher's Summary

How does a man like this strike a balance between micromanaging multiple lucrative enterprises and harboring the imagination necessary for realistic, entrepreneurial moon-shots? How did this man develop his work ethic? How did he become so thick-skinned and accepting of failure? What made him so ambitious, driven, and charismatic? Why has he been willing to risk his hard-earned fortune for the dicey progression of his risky ideas time and time again?

The answers to these questions do not lie in some hidden, mysterious spot in this man's genome, later to be studied and analyzed by scientists (post-mortem, of course) to understand how success looks on a molecular level. No, these traits were acquired through practice, practice, and more practice, until the hellacious grind became a pleasurable process almost as important as the end result.

This man, whom I have been alluding to, is (of course) the larger-than-life Elon Reeve Musk. By analyzing key facets of his life and investigating the wellspring from which he drew inspiration and the ability to sustain his child-like wonder into adulthood, we can learn life lessons and rules on how to be successful professionally, as well as, creatively. To streamline this investigation of the many positive character traits that Elon Musk has exhibited again and again throughout his life, I will focus on what I consider to be the eight most important rules for success in life, modeled after the actions of Elon Musk.

A worthwhile read

In a quick Audio Book most listeners will gain insight to not only one of the most interesting
entrepreneurs today but some good advise in becoming successful in life.

There is no magic formula to great success or certainly we would have many more well known
entrepreneurs but their are certain personality traits which are illustrated in this Book.

Musk's self disciplined is inspiring.

Coming from such a harsh environment helped set the stage for the nearly impossible disciplined lifestyle Musk has. I may never be as disciplined as Musk is, but I will still take some of the principles he's teaching and apply them to my life. Without a work/home life balance I would be miserable. But that doesn't mean I didn't learn some things to help keep on track. I agree with some of Elon's practices I'm just not going to the extreme with it. Musk is a interesting man that proves our achievements are based on what we put into it. I do recommend this book to anyone interested in Musk's formula for success. I have no doubt living a milder version of his rules can help anyone to prosper in their own success. Kevin Theis has done an excellent job driving home the point of this audio book. I was given a free copy of this book and have decided to voluntarily leave this review.

Good quick read

Elon Musk’s 8 Principles of Success: A Guidebook for Living a Successful Life by Matt Harrison was a good quick read. This was a good guidebook about living a successful life that is based up the life and successes of Elon Musk. This is a good read for any Elon Musk fan.

Interesting and motivational

This was a good short book. I liked the mix of learning about Elon's past as well as the motivational principles talked about by the author. It was inspiring and I hope to implement what I can from this book into my own life. The Narrator was good and reminded me of a news anchor or radio host from the 1950's.

I should have listened to the sample

Terrible narration. Very annoying style. Makes the book unlistenable. A waste of time and of a credit
