Put aside what you read on the web about Elon Musk. There is a significant amount more to him than just his genius and his accomplishments. This book lays out the life that he had before arriving in the United States and looks at the boy inside who set a path for himself and literally went through the fires of hell before getting the opportunities that he wished for. He did not fall into wealth and he did not work his way up the corporate ladder, Elon made every bit of his life that you see today.
Some of the stories that you find in this book will shock you and change the way you look at your own challenges. From arriving in a new country with just a few bucks and not knowing anyone, to working on farms and cleaning up after barn animals, to working in the fires of a toxic furnace, Elon Musk is an inspiration for a generation because he represents many of the values that define today’s Millennials and the Generation X folks.
From PayPal to Tesla to SpaceX, the driving force that built these icons of the imagination was the desire to make the world a better place for everyone; it was never about the money. This book gives you a deeper look and analysis of a man that defies the traditional mold of industrialist, entrepreneur, and achiever.
