Elon Musk is the man behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, multi-billion dollar companies he founded. Although he is now a multi-billionaire, his objective has never been to amass great wealth, but to save humanity. Writing in the Smithsonian, Carl Hoffman noted: "He does not laugh or crack a smile when he says this. There is no hint of irony." Musk's remarkable success with SpaceX in aerospace and Tesla in automobiles, is all the more remarkable because those industries have been the bastion of the big boys, companies hardly embracing of newcomers. Many so-called experts predicted his doom, only to be surprised by his success; he has accomplished what no one expected, perhaps with the exception of the man himself.
Award-winning author Daniel Alef tells the story of Elon Musk, the real-world Tony Stark, aka Ironman, also called by some the Henry Ford of space and electric cars. This biographical profile includes the latest on Tesla, SpaceX, the gigafactory, and his personal life.

I'm sorry but I can't listen to this the narrator doesn't pause before each section so its a bit like reading and entire book with no paragraph breaks no punctuation and no organisation of any sort so i will requesting a refund Elon Musk deserves better than this
"Could learn more from Google "
The author has likely never met his subject to and the info is so general and uninsightful that it is frustrating. Just a waste of time.
"Read it! Don't listen to it."
The performance was awful. No one talks like that. There were no pauses for effect. It sounded like each sentence was recorder independently, then mashed together to make the recording as brief as possible.
I am interested in anything Elon Musk. There is nothing new in this essay. I was hoping that some insights through collaboration with Elon would have been shared.
Take a breath! It's not a race. You're telling a story, not selling something at auction.
With so much potential given the subject matter, I expected more.
"Good overall 10,000 foot look at Elon"
I'm interested in all things Elon, found some out some interesting things, but also found some of the info rushed and repeated elsewhere. Interesting listen though :)
"Concise account of an unfinished story."
Lots of gratifying information, but the performance of the narrator comes across a bit like a breathless newscast.
