    I really liked this book. I like reading biographies about successful people because like most of us I am an aspiring important person, haha. The author really gets the point across how much he struggled to get Tesla off the ground. When she said that he grew up in a lower middle class family and just moved to america and made PayPal it amazed me how easy it seemed. One thing that I learned from this book is that he has a photographic memory. He knew computers more than his computer science prof I really liked this book.

The author really gets the point across how much he struggled to get Tesla off the ground. When she said that he grew up in a lower middle class family and just moved to america and made PayPal it amazed me how easy it seemed. One thing that I learned from this book is that he has a photographic memory. He knew computers more than his computer science professor. He liked to take risks. It sounds cliché to say that to succeed you have to take risks. But this is true with all the people I read about. You might not have even heard of Elon Musk but if you have you most likely think of Tesla motors. What I didn't know is that he created PayPal or its original name X.com. He also created SpaceX which is an aerospace company that works along side nasa. Also he founded what now days is called Solar City. And last but not least he made Tesla Motors. I really liked how the author was able to tell the story of Elon Musk. As I say in most of my book reviews (because I don't read books I don't like) I really liked this book and I know you will too.

    You know those "books" where someone takes a few Wikipedia articles connected to a subject, and simply joins them together and publishes it? If there were one of those on Elon Musk it would be ten times better than this.
