There are many books about him but I suggess 5 books that you should read to understand more about the Real Iron Man of the world
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.
Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion. Ashlee Vance captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius’ life and work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits.
Vance uses Musk’s story to explore one of the pressing questions of our age: Can the nation of inventors and creators who led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk – one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history – is a contemporary, visionary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists, including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy.
From humble, if not dreadful beginnings, Elon Musk’s story epitomizes the American dream.
Coming from South Africa, Elon has achieved unbelievable success in the business world time and time again.
A self-made billionaire, Musk has not simply strived to make money. What makes him most unique, is that in all of his ventures, his ultimate goal is to create a better future for humankind.
This book details the life-to-date of the incredible entrepreneur and visionary that we know Elon Musk as today. From his tumultuous childhood in South Africa, to his many different business ventures, to his vision for the future, this book will give you a deeper insight into just who Elon Musk is, what he’s achieved, and what he plans to do next.
What can’t Elon Musk do?
As CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, founder of The Boring Company, and cofounder of OpenAI, Musk seems to be everywhere all at once, pushing all kinds of incredible new technologies. He’s said he won’t be happy until we’ve escaped Earth and colonized Mars.
Between space rockets, electric cars, solar batteries, research into killer robots, and the billions he’s made along the way, Musk is basically a real-life Tony Stark — which is why he served as an inspiration for “Iron Man.”
But it wasn’t always easy for Musk. This book covers how he went from getting bullied in school to small-time entrepreneur to CEO of two major companies that seem like they’re straight out of science fiction — and how he almost went broke along the way. The aim of this book is to be educational and inspirational with actionable principles you can incorporate into your own life straight from the great man himself.
*INCLUDING* Elon Musk’s 15 Rules for Success, 60 Greatest Quotes & 40 Little known facts!
Elon Musk, the South African–born entrepreneur who made his first fortune with Internet companies such as PayPal, has risen to global prominence as the visionary CEO of both Tesla Motors and SpaceX, two companies with self-proclaimed missions to improve life as we know it and better secure the future of humanity.
For the first time, the most insightful, thought-provoking, and revealing quotes from this entrepreneurial engineer have been compiled into a single book. Rocket Man: Elon Musk In His Own Words is a comprehensive guide to the inner workings of the man dubbed “the real Tony Stark.” Hundreds of his best quotes, comprising thoughts on business, clean energy, innovation, engineering, technology, space, electric vehicles, entrepreneurship, life lessons, and more, provide an intimate and direct look into Silicon Valley’s most ambitious industrialist.
Even with no prior experience in the complex, ultra-high-barrier-of-entry automotive and space industries, Musk has excelled. Tesla, the first successful American car startup in more than 90 years, received more than 325,000 reservations for its economical Model 3 in a single week—advancing the company’s cause to “accelerate the advent of sustainable transport” via affordable, reliable electric vehicles. SpaceX, the first private company to launch, orbit, and recover a rocket and dock at the International Space Station, has drastically reduced the cost of launching and manufacturing reusable spacecraft, which the company sees as the first step toward its “ultimate goal” of making life multiplanetary. In the words of Richard Branson, “Whatever skeptics have said can’t be done, Elon has gone out and made real.”
How could a young man who at one time seemed like “just” another Internet entrepreneur have gone on to build two highly disruptive companies and innovate technologies related to everything from electric batteries to rocket manufacturing? There’s no better way to learn than through his own words.
This book curates Musk quotes from interviews, public appearances, online postings, company blogs, press releases, and more. What emerges is a ‘word portrait’ of the man whose companies’ swift rise to the top will undoubtedly keep their status-quo competitors scrambling to keep up.
