    By bobOGC
    An excellent read about the man who is the greatest innovator of our time. I was amazed at the insight and depth into Elon’s life. Very well written.
  • Fascinating portrait, a must read

    By Anotherdaddio
    Feels different from the other bios Isaacson has written, all excellent, so that had me a little worried at first, but his subject (Musk) is so interesting and consequential and essential to understand, and the author was given such a closeup, real-time front row view, that while different it is still an absolute fabulous read. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
  • Elon

    By X.Victor
    Extremely insightful to take a peek into the inner workings of a visionaries mind.
  • Hope to be alive for the sequel

    By cdgujffjkbf
    Whether you like or dislike Elon Musk, he has done extraordinary things in “unique “ ways. The book is well written and worth the 600+ pages. I look forward to the next 600, as it will require a sequel.
  • Reality beats fiction

    By ivandogone
    If an author of fiction wrote a book with Musk as a character it would seem ridiculously unbelievable.
  • Interesting Genius

    By CreekNine
    Seems like most geniuses are eccentric..interesting look at a brilliant visionary.
  • Great Read

    By maresolo
    Enjoyed learning a lot about Elon, his quirks and what inspires him to do what he does. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn about Space X, Tesla and how it all got started to what it is today. Oh and the whole Twitter thing! Definitely buy it and read it.
  • Great Read

    By Young Exec
    Whether you like or hate the man, Musk has changed the world as if he has had 3 or 4 lifetimes. Isaacson lays his character, accomplishments and failures out to bare. Additionally as you learn more about Musk I find his tenacity inspiring and motivating. Worth your time to read!
  • Change is hard

    By Ahwahneerob
    As shown in these reviews and by the author, Elon is a polarizing character. This is/was true of virtually every notable person throughout history, good or bad. Musk has a vision, intelligence and drive rarely experienced in modern times. While his lack of social skills, refusal to accept status quo, and never surrender approach results in discomfort or distaste for many, it is what is needed to break through the evolutionary stagnation of our era. I did not think the writing of this book was especially good. The events covered were all pretty much public record, even those that were not entirely correct. I would have appreciated a more in-depth look at the family, friends and lovers that seem to understand him better than anyone else and have remained loyal to Musk for so many years. The writing seemed less of an insider’s story than one pulled from media archives. Still, worth reading and I’m looking forward to “Part Two”.

    Just like WI did on Steve Jobs, he gives us a unique inside and behind the scenes on how the greatest minds of our time work, live and ultimately created the world we live in and became trailblazers. Amazing read!
