Elon Musk: SpaceX, Tesla and the Quest for a fantastic future
Elon Musk doesn’t require any introduction; he has gain popularity for many reasons and set his image as a successful entrepreneur.
Actually, I was in search for a motivational book and I got Elon Musk written by Ashlee Vance. Before this, I have also read a well-known entrepreneur Steve Job who is the mastermind behind Apple Company.
Both are the entrepreneur of our generation, although I am not using Elon’s product in my daily life yet he actually paving a way to the future for human being like he has opened a way to set human species on planet Mars which is quite possible because as we are witnessing the climate change on earth, one day this planet will not remain a moderate place to live.
Elon Musk is an incredibly smart guy; you can watch his interview with Joe Rogan you would probably get surprised how his mind works. He always has a visionary mindset in favor of mankind. You should definitely check out his interview.
He is known for his billion dollars worth companies and some people has set his image as a real world of tony stark. Actually, rumors are there that Robert Downey Jr met him before iron man (2008).
various companies Elon Musk are as follows:
- x.com which become PayPal
- Tesla which manufactures sporty looking electric cars
- The concept of Space X has never imagined before. It now reuses shuttles and controls each takes off which result cost cutting in space travel, satellite launches, etc.
- SolarCity which is known for taking solar power to the next level
- Hyperloop has recently got approval which is based on the concept of digging a tunnel in a parking lot to combat with brutal traffic problems.
The Quest for a fantastic future : Elon Musk
The cover all his struggle and his vision and ideas for the future. This is a journey from his childhood to what he has become today. Ashlee Vance does a wonderful job to highlight every point of his life and covers all of his ups and downs both in personal and professional life.
While reading this book I was comparing Elon Musk with Steve Jobs, but I think Elon like to remove shoe while sleeping. Steve also was very focused and known for his work, similarly Elon Musk also believes in what they are doing would not take no for an answer.
So these are some points mentioned in the book. He always thinks to make better mankind by focusing on the problems we are facing today. He has challenged the automobile, energy, and space industry and I think he is doing a great job
I highly recommend this book and I kept it on my top 10 motivational books which I have read.
