Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future

I love reading (or in this case, listening) to stories about entrepreneurs that have done amazing things. In this case, Elon Musk fits the bill. He played a big roll in PayPal and has subsequently launched or played a big role in Tesla, SpaceX, and Solar City. Vance compares Musk to a combination of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Based on Musk’s accomplishments, that could be an accurate description. I enjoyed getting to know more about his various ventures, particularly his rough patch in 2008 that threatened to bankrupt both Tesla and SpaceX. The most admirable attribute of Musk is his audacity to attack seemingly impossible goals while many others settle for incremental improvements.
