    Inhaltsangabe

    In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley's most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs - a real-life Tony Stark - and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new makers.

    Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion. Ashlee Vance captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius' life and work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits.

    Vance uses Musk's story to explore one of the pressing questions of our age: Can the nation of inventors and creators who led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk - one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history - is a contemporary, visionary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists, including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Fred Sanders narrates this smartly written biography with the right balance of gravitas and entertainment value, providing accents for some of the major characters including a convincing South African accent for the story's star.... The combination of great narration, well-written and well-researched content, and a bigger-than-life subject propels this nuanced work into the upper atmosphere of audiobook biographies."

    Awesome read!!

    Initially I was put off by what I perceived as the heavy marketing of the book. Then after reading "The Everything Store" about Jeff Bezos I saw the excellent ratings the Musk book received and gave it a shot.

    It blew me away. It is like the Bezos book just better. Why better? It comes down to Musk being the more interesting character and the book covering more than one company.

    Inspiring, eye opening, insightful, dense, great narrator and storyline, must read especially for young people wanting a feel for where the world is going.

    Faszination Musk

    Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Elon Musk besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

    Die Geschichte eines Mannes dem es nicht nur um Profit geht, (da er mehr als einmal kurz vor dem Ruin stand und dennoch weiter seien Ideen umsetzen wollte) sondern darum auf einzigartige Weise die Welt zu verbessern.

    Welches andere Buch würden Sie mit Elon Musk vergleichen? Warum?

    Ich höre mindestens 2 Hörbücher pro Monat und kaum eines hat mich mehr fasziniert. Wenn ich Musk's Lebensweise nutze um daraus Erfolgreich zu werden, dann könnte ich sein Buch nur mit Jack Canfield's Buch - The Success Principles vergleichen.
    Die meisten Wissenschaftlichen Bücher/Hörbücher schaffen es Informationen sehr gut zu erzählen, doch werden diese ab der hälfte des Buches ständig Wiederholt. Dieses Hörbuch bleibt bis zur letzten Minute informativ und gibt Einblicke in die Denkweise, das Führungsverhalten, das Leben und Wissen eines der derzeit größten Denker unser Zeit.

    Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

    Während des gesamten Hörbuchs werden die auf und abs von Zib2, X.com (paypal), SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity und seinem Leben aufgezeigt. Der ständige Wechsel und das aufzeigen von Musk's schwächen, mach ihn Menschlich und zu einem Vorbild.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Für alle die dieses Buch hören oder lesen wollen, würde ich empfehlen sich Vorträge von Elon Musk anzusehen und die Seiten teslamotors.com und spacex.com zu besuchen um einen Einblick zu bekommen was Musk und seine Unternehmen in Jahren seit der Veröffentlichung des Buches/Hörbuches bereits erreicht haben.

    It's nice

    It is very interesting although I have the feeling sometimes the the author has kind of a praise the great elon mentality, but maybe I am wrong and we should praise him :D

    I love Elon! Go eat dirt Jef b😊

    So very interesting hearing it now and being able to follow up and filling in the spaces where Elon was still only “talking” about the Boring company!

    Hahahahaha what a human being! Made me like the king of TECHNO even more!

    Btw....in regards to the current FUD in Germany

    Don’t worry 😉 that’s how they always treated foreigners..

    Good book nearly didn’t buy it because it was from 2014 but I highly recommend it in 2021 as it gives very interesting insights about not so well known sides of Elon!

    And it is so good to see that he is actually coming through with everything as he planned!

    Maybe a bit late on one one or the other thing...but he is delivering Bigger then anyone ever thought he would in 2014!

    Very good reader very good story and very very interesting!

    Great read for those who want to learn from greatness

    Elon Musk is a super interesting if not the most interesting entrepreneur of our days. Ashley’s book allows us to understand how Elon looks at the world, how he approaches problems and how he tackles one challenge after another.

    I can highly recommend to every entrepreneur or those in the making. Very inspiring source.

    The kind of books which gives me the kick

    A mixture of a lifetime story, a story of a personality, of a human, of a mind and his very own way to create, which is following the only path he knows and which is his true one. The story of his creations and the "no coincdences, nothing by chance" around it. No sugar on it, nothing nice-spoken. Very real and hence, very humane and close.
    And in all that, aboslutelly breattaking exciting!

    not really a biography

    if I had to rate this book as for a biography it would be the worst so far that I have read. it is certainly a book more about musk's companies. and for this it is ok, although it is chronically a bit wild and names a bunch of numbers all the time that at least in an audio book are not super interesting. wouldn't read it again.

    Enjoy listening to it.

    I really enjoyed listening to the book and amazed by Elon life and determination and hunger for business. Won't mind to have a braai with him. Braai is South African for Bbq. Great to see an Man from South Africa advance US and the world in Space and Electrical Cars. #elonmusk #tesla # spacex

    Fascinating person and story

    Elon Musk is certainly a great innovator with an exceptional mind. Thus I can highly recommend this book as it gives you an idea of what is to come in the not too distant future. Worth exploring!
