Get inside the head of one of the most compelling entrepreneurs of our time with this collection of quotes from global business icon Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX.

Description

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.

Now, the most insightful, thought-provoking, and revealing quotes from this entrepreneurial engineer have been compiled into a single book. 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.”

Newly updated and repackaged from its original publication in 2017 as Rocket Man: Elon Musk In 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.

Praise and Reviews

"[I, Steve] is the same treatment given such luminaries as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Hitchens and offers Jobs's views on life, death, technology and design, among other topics.”—Timothy R. Smith, The Washington Post "[Impatient Optimist] is like eating salted peanuts: Once you start reading, it's hard to stop."—Anne Fisher, CNN Money "A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs' most illuminating quotes..."—Lance Whitney, CNET "A 160-page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P.T. Barnum." —Ben Popper, The New York Observer BetaBeat blog "A much better Jobs product is coming soon. It’ll entertain you for hours, and no—it is not a Jobs-branded iPad or anything similarly high-tech. It is, friends, an old-fashioned book!"—Hillary Reinsberg, Mogulite "Inspirational reading pleasure."—Courtney Boyd Myers, The Next Web "The kind of book that you read, think about, and then pass on to a friend or colleague...I learned a lot about Jobs’ thinking process." —Allen Stern, CenterNetworks "[Boy Billionaire] reveals the intimate thoughts and beliefs of the man who has arguably created one of the world's largest companies…and who is also one of the world's greatest social connectors." —Strategy Driven "A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom..."— Michael Roach, Law Technology News
