Reads like a fan boy novel
I feel no real research was done to make this book. Most everything stated can be learned from Mr. Musk's Wikipedia page. The only thing I learned from this book was a bit more about the history of the hyper loop. Jason Lovett's reading was nearly unbearable, his constant up and down tone as he reads made it hard to concentrate on the already dreadful story. I was hoping to learn more about the drama Musk has gone through. I wanted to learn more about the Pay Pal story, More on his fight with the US car manufacturers on Tesla's distribution rights. His battle to get the NASA contract for SpaceX to deliver goods to the ISS. None of these issues were brought up.
The most interesting part of this story was the very brief history of the hyper loop, which is sad because this book is about Musk. There are no personal interviews with him at all. The least interesting part is the constant Musk self circle jerk the author is doing. Ending a lot of the short chapters with a "Musk is a walking deity" statement.
Anyone who doesn't speak with such an inflection would have been a better choice.
I'm sure Mr. Musk's life will become a movie at some point. However I would not go see it, not unless he does something more interesting.
