Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future
In this New York Times Bestseller veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance explores the life of legendary Silicon Valley entrepreneur Elon Musk. Vance was granted exclusive access to Musk as well as his friends and family allowing us a glimpse for the first time into the man behind Tesla, SpaceX, Solar City and PayPal.
The scale and audacity of Musk’s ventures have led some to compare him with legendary American inventors and industrialists such as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Vance considers this comparison while attempting to answer the question of whether America, a nation of inventors and creators which led the modern world for a century, can still compete in an age of fierce global competition.
