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

One of the more well-known faces of entrepreneurship of this decade, Elon Musk has made a name for himself with the companies he has founded. Musk is behind well-known businesses such as PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, Zip2, and Solar City, and has focused his work on helping to invent the future and push past the normal way of getting things done. Written by technology journalist Ashlee Vance, this book offers a behind-the-scenes look into the life and work of Elon Musk. This story traces Musk’s early life in South Africa to his arrival in the United States in 1992. His life has had both massive disappointments and huge successes, but Musk’s dedication and focus on the future has brought his net worth to more than $5 billion.

Why Cydcor Recommends This Book

Vance presents an in-depth look into one of the world’s most important entrepreneurs, and you can’t help but feel inspired to reach for the stars no matter what career path you’re on. Readers will enjoy the insight into how Musk operates, as well as a glimpse into the overall ecosystem around Musk’s companies. This book presents unique insight into his personal relationships, how he’s coped with failures, and how he manages through the high’s and lows of doing it your own way. The book can be summarized as asking the question “What are you going to go out and reinvent?” and a theme like this is perfect for anyone looking for some entrepreneurial motivation.

Cydcor’s Favorite Part

Although Musk is a massive success today, he didn’t get there without a few falls, just like author of #GirlBoss, Sophia Amoruso. SpaceX and Tesla were both hours away from going bankrupt. The Falcon 1 rocket would not work, and one more failed launch would mean a bitter end for dreams of reaching outer space. Most people dream of the future, but Elon Musk has built a career focused on constructing the future. Musk is a mad scientist, inventor, business mogul and visionary all at the same time. Learning about the rough path to success is a lesson for everyone to learn.
