Publisher's Summary

Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future is a biography by Ashlee Vance. Musk originally refused to cooperate with Vance's biography. This was no surprise, as he was known for being extremely controlling of everything written about him and his companies. Vance already had plenty of inside sources, but he wanted Musk's input. Musk demanded to be allowed to vet the book and add his version where he did not agree. Vance refused. However, he managed to get Musk to listen to his journalistic and personal reasons for not allowing preapproval of the book. To his surprise, Musk agreed to cooperate and allowed free access to his staff, friends, and family.

Musk's three major goals in life were to make humans space colonizers, to build ecologically sound and beautiful cars, and to power the world with safe, free solar energy. By 2012, his Space X, Tesla Motors, and SolarCity companies were all racking up success after success in each of his goal areas....

    "Summary a bit weak"

    Glad I didn't read the book if this is an indication of the tone, insight and story. Pretty drab - hard to make possibly the most interesting person on the planet sound benign but this goes close.

    "Choppy speech, dropping first letter of sentences"

    I listened to a sample online whereupon they recommended that I download the entire book at audible.com. I did so, or at least I thought I did but I ended up getting this instaread version that is certainly not the same thing nor what I expected.

    "Not what I anticipated."

    Perhaps this is my own fault, but I was expecting a response to "Musk"; something that loom into why it was either good and accurate or poor, false, and biases. What I got was a good summary, and an extremely brief analysis that basically says "yep, Ashlee did his homework". It was short and did it's just fine. I just thought it was going to be something different.
