BRIEF INTRODUCTIONWhat is needed to save the human race? How does an entrepreneur pick his goals and visions to achieve a promising future? The book ELON MUSK (2015), allows us to enter into the life of this brilliant (and difficult) businessman, one of the richest and most powerful men in the world, whose mission is to help humanity.WHAT WILL YOU LEARN? IF YOU DREAM big and act fearlessly (with just a hint of madness), you will be surprised how you can achieve everything you want. Passionate goals will lead you to success. Musk's passion was to save humanity from destruction, and it has been the greatest impulse of his life. You will learn that money is not everything. Musk disliked the fact that the motivation of most companies, was to make money instead of making the world a better place. You will know that failures are a way of learning. Not everything went well for Musk along the way, but his determination and his enthusiasm were equal to those of the great inventors and scientists of humanity.ABOUT THE ORIGINAL BOOKELON MUSK is an ambitious and passionate man who does not know the meaning of the word "no". He is, in the proper meaning of the adjective, an exceptional man. Within him, as yin and yang, lives unbridled ego and the nobility of his intentions to help the whole of humanity. Whatever they say, it is undeniable that he has been a key figure of this century, and that the appearance of the future will be partly thanks to him. Musk is usually possessive and controlling in everything that has to do with his business and personal life. He closely monitors any publication that involves him and, therefore, at first was not very willing to help with the creation of this autobiographical book. The author, Ashlee Vance, already had reliable sources of information for the project, but still wanted to interview Musk in person with his friends and family. Although the process had its difficulties, finally Vance had the support and participation of Musk. The result was this legendary biography that has been translated into 40 languages. In 2015, it was categorized as one of the best books and remained long in the bestseller list of the New York Times. Similarly, the book has been praised by Amazon, Fast Company, Audible and Wall Street Journal. It is a controversial story that shows us the most complete vision about Elon Musk, the man behind the companies that have shaped the future: Space X, Tesla Motors and SolarCity. That is why it isnt unreasonable to consider Musk as one of the most daring and creative men of humanity, placing him at the level of figures like Henry Ford, Howard Hughes and Thomas Edison. The story of Elon Musk begins with the birth of this genius in South Africa, and then tells us about his life in the United States, where he began his career as an entrepreneur. Before he became successful, he was faced with a series of hard failures; from Silicon Valley and PayPal, to Los Angeles and space rockets, Musk survived disasters in both the professional and personal spheres. The book culminates with the creation of his technological empire, and the reader will appreciate how Musk managed to change the future by investing all his time and money into his projects.INTRODUCTIONORIGINALLY, the idea of this book began as a simple story about Elon Musk. This is one that Ashlee Vance wanted to write for Bloomberg Businessweek. The project grew and became the complete biography of the "deity" of Silicon Valley, a 43-year-old South African entrepreneur who, after the death of Steve Jobs, was chosen as the replacement of the most influential figure in the field of technology. Also outstanding as an inventor and engineer, Musk has left his mark forever as one of the most important drivers of space exploration, innovation in electric cars and the use of solar energy.
