Elon Musk is a very interesting and inspiring human. Taking brave ambitions for reducing the climate impacts, and fulfilling them from ideas to implementation, while also leading teams, designing, talking with politicians, and also go to the floor and screw - we could all learn from Elon!!!

Det är för få personer som tar smarta risker eller skapar och sprider modiga idéer - för många som är rädda att bli kritiserade eller hånade

About the book, I think it was to much different people that just were mentioned. It almost made me not complete the book! …. But 4 out of 5!… (more)

This was an interesting and worthwhile insight into Musk’s life. Like many of these kinds of biographies about public figures who are still alive, it fell short on details sometimes - disappointingly even historical details that set the scene more in the early years. But still worth a read if you want to know more about the man, his approach to work, and his ambitions.

Vance has a gift for finding interesting people and getting them to open up for him. He had to do it over and over again for this book -- the cast of characters is amazing. The stories they tell of the government agencies and the companies that are revolutionizing space travel are fascinating

I'm convinced that inexpensive access to low-Earth orbit will be transformative. I'm confident it's one of the ways we'll address the climate crisis, with sensors and monitors and more. I bet we can't imagine the ways it'll be used, yet. Might be some more books to write about that.

I absolutely loved this book.

Very good read. Gives a little peek into the life and achievements of the true superhero of our times. Extremely inspiring personality. Like the Walter Isaacson's bio of Steve Jobs, this gives a very balanced view of Musk.
