A brief but crisp read about one of the most remarkable personalities in the past decade. This book is like an appetizer written to spark your interest in the remarkable life of a true genius. I would highly recommend people to read this book as it won't take more than an hour of your time.

The book is straight-forward covering the entire entrepreneur journey of Elon Musk in snippets. Those who are not exactly into biography but wants to learn a few lessons can hold on to this book. Not all but some of the lessons are worth remembering for the entire life.

Just go buy the biography by Ashlee Vance. This was just an OK summary of the book, with some grammar and spelling mistakes.

Short and sweet

The lessons felt kind of wasted but the overall boom was an excellent biography if you want to learn about Musk in an hour or so.

Quick read

Some of the lessons were long in sentence that misses the impact they could have.
And few seemed to be added to just complete the numbers.

Pretty average

The lessons mentioned in the book are more or less obvious. They just seem to be spelled out to the reader.
