If you're a follower, there's nothing new here.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
If you are tech enthusiast and/or follow tech news moderately, you won't find anything new in this book. This book mostly covers very basic details of Elon's life, things that you can find in his Wikipedia page or simple Google searches. And similar details are also available in various YouTube videos. Hence I wouldn't recommend anyone to pay for this book. If you are getting it for free though, go for it.
What do you think your next listen will be?
"Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future" by Ashlee Vance.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Theis?
There was no problem narration-wise. Hence I am not opposed to listening to another book narrated by Kevin Theis.
Any additional comments?
I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

A small peek into Elon's success..
This short book is a combination of what he's accomplished, what he's trying to accomplish, and what's happened in his personal life. I was hoping for more detailed information on how he made his Billions. The most interesting thing about this book to me was the work he's doing with environmentally safe transportation.
For someone seeking basic knowledge about Elon this is a good place to start. For those wanting an inside look into the mind of a money making genius you won't get it here. I requested this free review copy and have decided to voluntarily leave this review.

Fascinating character study!
If you don’t know much about this man, you will be forgiven for about five more minutes. He is a first rate technological genius and probably a new-age, alien-loving, Marsian wannabe.
Next time you use PayPal or see a Tesla or plan a vacation on another planet, you will have this African dude to thank.
The narration was excellent as always with Kevin Theis.

I really enjoyed this short bio of Elon Musk. I have to admit, I really didn’t know much about him before listening. Now I feel like I can have an intelligent conversation about his many accomplishments.

After this, I am 90% sure Elon is a supervillan
I remember reading a headline about Elon Musk when he started selling actual flamethrowers. Then I had a chance to listen and review a book about him so I jumped at the chance. This guy, I cant decide if he seems more tony stark or more dr. evil. On one hand he dose so much good I cant help but respect the man. On the other....if someone told me the man had a moat of lava around his house I would be surprised, but I wouldn't really question the validity of it. The world is better for having this man in it and as far as biography's go I Highly recommend this one.

Elon Musk Who? Oh He's THAT Guy-PayPal, Space X..
Dan Scott has written a really good, very brief overview of Elon Musk. I don't believe in many of the things he does but it is interesting all the same. He is definitely eccentric and the timing of this being released on audio is timely (having just recently launched a rocket containing his Tesla 2018.)
Kevin Theis' narration is dynamic!
