Erik Nordeus has done a commendable job, scouring the web of resources to build a narrative of Elon Musk— a man too busy to get involved in a biography— and doing so in a different language! The book is an interesting business model (see leanpub.com/theengineer for more information) and it serves well as a first pass on the story of Elon Musk. I actually learned quite a bit.

In the future I really hope Nordeus is able to get an English editor and make some follow up interviews with the man himself. Also, since the book has the tinge of hero worship, I hope that Nordeus can give us some more constructive criticism of Elon (who, admittedly I worship as a hero myself). Regardless, it is an easy and quick read, and well worth it.
