Elon Musk

Author: Ashlee Vance
Publisher: Harper Collins
ISBN: 9780062301260
Release Date: 2015-05-19
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

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.

Rocket Man Elon Musk In His Own Words

Author: Jessica Easto
Publisher: Agate Publishing
ISBN: 9781572847903
Release Date: 2017-02-14
Genre: Business & Economics

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. Rocket Man: Elon Musk In His Own Words is a comprehensive guide to the inner workings of the man dubbed "the real Tony Stark." Hundreds of his best quotes, comprising thoughts on business, clean energy, innovation, engineering, technology, space, electric vehicles, entrepreneurship, life lessons, and more, provide an intimate and direct look into Silicon Valley's most ambitious industrialist. Even with no prior experience in the complex, ultra-high-barrier-of-entry automotive and space industries, Musk has excelled. Tesla, the first successful American car startup in more than 90 years, received more than 325,000 reservations for its economical Model 3 in a single week—advancing the company’s cause to “accelerate the advent of sustainable transport” via affordable, reliable electric vehicles. SpaceX, the first private company to launch, orbit, and recover a rocket and dock at the International Space Station, has drastically reduced the cost of launching and manufacturing reusable spacecraft, which the company sees as the first step toward its "ultimate goal" of making life multiplanetary. In the words of Richard Branson, "Whatever skeptics have said can’t be done, Elon has gone out and made real." How could a young man who at one time seemed like "just" another Internet entrepreneur have gone on to build two highly disruptive companies and innovate technologies related to everything from electric batteries to rocket manufacturing? 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.

Zero to One

Genre: Business & Economics

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER If you want to build a better future, you must believe in secrets. The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things. Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself. Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique. Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places.

Twelve Against the Gods Reboot

Release Date: 2017-01-29
Genre:

"Really good" Elon Musk, CEO, Tesla Motors "An adventure of bucking established practices in pursuit of greatness" T. Randall, Bloomberg Twelve Against the Gods is the story of adventure and interpretation of the full-spectrum of "adventure" types through the lives and life lessons of Alexander the Great to Casanova, Mohammed to Isadora Duncan, Seraphina to Woodrow Wilson. It was originally written under Brit-born, South African William Ryall's nom de plume, William Bolitho, known to his fellow friends as "Bill." These friends included fellow adventurers and writers Ernest Hemingway and Noel Coward. Just a year after achieving enormous recognition with "Twelve Against the Gods," Bolitho died at age 39; ironically from appendicitis (vs. lion or tarmac impact). Many, including Elon Musk, consider it one of the "really good" books. Why? It's entertaining, yes, but it's also instructive to budding iconoclasts that want to glean operative knowledge through reading "the adventure of bucking established practices in pursuit of greatness" (source: T. Randall, Bloomberg) We've taken Bolitho's original text and added new photography, illustrations and graphics, while updating a few (now) archaic words, and cleaning up the original layout to better present Bolitho's original work. A work that is still as relevant today as it was 90 years ago, but better appreciated today through a fresher, more contemporary presentation. There are also a few hidden bonuses in this edition, you'll have to find them yourself. However, none of the original writing was changed (ideas, opinions, phrasing). Note: While we corrected some (minor) grammatical & type-setting errors in the original text, and "translated" some of the language that was outdated, to make the text less confusing (e.g., (e.g. "Mohamet" to "Mohammad"), we've preserved all of Bolitho's more "creative" English (neologisms) to maintain the character and flavor of the original.

Genre:

Just Who Is Elon Musk & How Has He Managed To Achieve So Much In His Relatively Short Life? When actor Robert Downey Jr. signed on to portray Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man), he suggested to director John Favreau that they meet up with Elon Musk. They have a task of bringing to life a superhero, and Musk is the closest there ever is to Marvel's genius, billionaire, philanthropist in real life. The meeting was set and some of Musk's characteristics went into RDJ's portrayal of Tony Stark on screen, thus creating the memorable character that people come to know and love. In reality, there is far more to Musk's life and person than can be personified by a fictional character. Sure, he does have a lot in common with Iron Man; he's a prodigious tech genius and entrepreneur, with the capacity to make seemingly impossible ideas a reality. Like Tony Stark, he dreams, thinks and lives large, but that is where the similarity ends. Unlike his comic book counterpart, Elon Musk was not born into a life of luxury and ease. Despite showing potential for greatness as early as his preteens, his childhood and young adult life was filled with adversaries. To this day, Musk credits his early life struggles in helping him cultivate the indomitable spirit he is known for. In this book, we will look at Elon's story and find out exactly how he has gone from a young man raised in Pretoria, South Africa to become a truly one of a kind businessman and genius-visionary who's boundaries are seemingly unlimited. In this book you'll learn about: The Beginnings Of Elon's Greatness How Elon's Young Promise Was Fulfilled Elon's Path From X.com To PayPal The Remarkable Story Of Tesla Motors Space X - Elon's Otherworldly Ambitions! The Success Of SolarCity Elon's Plan Of Revolutionizing Mass Transit Via Hyperloop ALSO, Learn The Simple Truths Behind The Success Of Elon Musk! Elon Musk is one of very few men who could realistically be called a modern day renaissance man. His abilities seem unlimited and he is unquestionably a supremely driven individual who has already achieved some truly outstanding feats in his relatively short life, and with his seemingly insatiable drive and ambition it seems almost inevitable that he will achieve much more during the remainder of his life. The truth is, very few of us are likely to have such lofty ambitions as Musk, but despite this we can however still learn a great deal from him in regard to what it takes to be successful, both in business and in life. In this book, we will look at 7 key principles of Musk's business and personal success by looking more deeply into the meaning of some of his own quotes in order to shed light on: The Importance of Knowing What You Want And Why You Want It The Positive Effects Which Stem From Embracing Change Why We Must Plan For The Worst To Prevent It From Happening The Simple Truth When It Comes To Hard Work Why You Must Regularly Monitor Your Results And Question Your Actions Knowing When To Take Risks The Value Of Patience And Persistence You will see that Musk's business and personal success is not so much a result of any inmate abilities which he may have been born with, but rather that it results from cultivating a number of personality traits essential for navigating the worlds of both commerce and life. Once we understand these core principles we can begin to incorporate them into our own lives, and over time they will undoubtedly go a long way in ensuring our long-term success, wealth and happiness.
