SUMMARY:

*A Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller* “A deeply reported and business-savvy chronicle of Tesla's wild ride.” —Walter Isaacson, New York Times Book Review Power Play is the riveting inside story of Elon Musk and Tesla's bid to build the world's greatest car—from award-winning Wall Street Journal tech and auto reporter Tim Higgins Elon Musk is among the most controversial titans of Silicon Valley. To some he's a genius and a visionary; to others he's a mercurial huckster. Billions of dollars have been gained and lost on his tweets; his personal exploits are the stuff of tabloids. But for all his outrageous talk of mind-uploading and space travel, his most audacious vision is the one closest to the ground: the electric car. When Tesla was founded in the 2000s, electric cars were novelties, trotted out and thrown on the scrap heap by carmakers for more than a century. But where most onlookers saw only failure, a small band of Silicon Valley engineers and entrepreneurs saw opportunity. The gas-guzzling car was in need of disruption. They pitted themselves against the biggest, fiercest business rivals in the world, setting out to make a car that was quicker, sexier, smoother, cleaner than the competition. But as the saying goes, to make a small fortune in cars, start with a big fortune. Tesla would undergo a hellish fifteen years, beset by rivals, pressured by investors, hobbled by whistleblowers, buoyed by its loyal supporters. Musk himself would often prove Tesla's worst enemy—his antics more than once took the company he had initially funded largely with his own money to the brink of collapse. Was he an underdog, an antihero, a conman, or some combination of the three? Wall Street Journal tech and auto reporter Tim Higgins had a front-row seat for the drama: the pileups, wrestling for control, meltdowns, and the unlikeliest outcome of all, success. A story of power, recklessness, struggle, and triumph, Power Play is an exhilarating look at how a team of eccentrics and innovators beat the odds—and changed the future.

SUMMARY:

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’s 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. Thorough and insightful, Elon Musk brings to life a technology industry that is rapidly and dramatically changing by examining the life of one of its most powerful and influential titans.

A compilation of inspiring and motivational quotes from Elon Musk, “the world’s most remarkable living entrepreneur” (Chris Anderson, curator of TED). 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.

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.

SUMMARY:

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK Everybody wants to know Mark Zuckerberg. Young people adore very inch of this intelligent fellow. Girls would die for an hour with him (Sorry, Pricilla). Everyone -- just everyone wants a piece of him. Well, after all, the world is swarmed by1.5 billion Digital Natives and Immigrants who make use of Facebook, the company he founded inside his cramped dorm-size room.Then here comes Elon Reeve Musk climbing up the ladder of the most influential and successful people to date. His name is already permanently imprinted on Forbes Magazine. Not only does he juggle leading and running today's biggest companies (note: plural form), but this guy is literally going for the moon--err, Mars, actually. Mr. Musk does not aim to conquer the world with his brilliance, ingenuity, and enormous confidence in human capabilities, but he is aiming to conquer the universe. To say that this man dares to push the envelope of the human knowledge is an understatement. F�d�ration A�ronautique Internationale, the sole governing body for the ultimate aerospace records, has awarded Musk with FAI Gold Space Medal. This is the same awarded that Astronaut Neil Armstrong. To know the reason behind this award, you simply have to flip one chapter after the other. This book illustrates how Elon Musk is thriving to satisfy everyone's futuristic fancies. This is not to hail him as the best man who ever worked on the face of the earth, but to prove his authenticity as a genius and as a man of vision.

SUMMARY:

Many things can be said about Elon Musk, entrepreneur, genius, inventor, and visionary, just to name a few. He is as much a celebrity figure, as he is a businessman and a creator. Even by the age of 12, he had started showing signs of greatness by creating and selling the code for his game, Blaster for $500 to a magazine. In college, he held Frat-parties which made enough money for him to live on for a month. He has continued this vein of success into adulthood by succeeding in most things he has attempted. Most notably his involvement in the creation of such companies such as Paypal, and most recently SpaceX. Where there is a story about Elon's successes, it often comes hand-in-hand with a controversy about his persona, his actions, or wild statements that he has made on social media. Elon Musk is a quintessential combination of intelligence, fortitude, sarcasm, wit, and judiciousness. These elements combined have produced a man who is considered a contemporary genius, historically worthy of mention amongst the greats including Isaac Newton, and the likes of Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, John Rockefeller and coincidentally, Nikola Tesla himself. There seems to be a new story circulating about Elon Musk every other week. But who is he? Why is he famous? What are his achievements? This book discusses the life and controversies surrounding Elon Musk, the self-made billionaire and entrepreneur. Elon Musk is never far from media attention. Approaching 50 years old, Elon Musk is currently listed in Forbes Magazine as the twenty-third richest billionaire in the world, with a net worth of $39.8 billion. As his wealth has increased, so has his fame, popularity and media scrutiny. Musk's ideas on the colonization of Mars and his leadership as the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX have him constantly in the media spotlight. Whether his ideas are ludicrous, radical, or ingenious, they have catapulted him to immeasurable fame. Love him or hate him, he is one of the greatest minds of our time, and I'm sure we will continue to hear more from the South African business magnate and philanthropist over the coming years. As Musk said himself, "I could either watch it happen or be a part of it." Who are we to argue with that?

SUMMARY:

The authoritative account of the rise of Amazon and its intensely driven founder, Jeff Bezos, praised by the Seattle Times as "the definitive account of how a tech icon came to life." Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn't content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that's never been cracked. Until now. Brad Stone enjoyed unprecedented access to current and former Amazon employees and Bezos family members, giving readers the first in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of life at Amazon. Compared to tech's other elite innovators -- Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg -- Bezos is a private man. But he stands out for his restless pursuit of new markets, leading Amazon into risky new ventures like the Kindle and cloud computing, and transforming retail in the same way Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing. The Everything Store is the revealing, definitive biography of the company that placed one of the first and largest bets on the Internet and forever changed the way we shop and read.

In 2015, Musk co-founded OpenAI, a nonprofit research company that aims to promote friendly artificial intelligence. In July 2016, he co-founded Neuralink, a neurotechnology company focused on developing brain-computer interfaces, and is its CEO. In December 2016, Musk founded The Boring Company, an infrastructure and tunnel-construction company. In addition to his primary business pursuits, Musk has envisioned a high-speed transportation system, known as the Hyperloop, and has proposed a vertical take-off and landing supersonic jet electric aircraft with electric fan propulsion, known as the Musk electric jet. Musk has stated that the goals of SpaceX, Tesla and SolarCity revolve around his vision to change the world and humanity. His goals include reducing global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption, and reducing the "risk of human extinction" by establishing a human colony on Mars.
