I never thought such book can be so funny , but I never read anything like it, so I can't compare. Plenty of facts and history . I'll probably try some more of this book's kind / genere . Tonight , I'm going to watch the film , pretty sure it can't compare with the book .

He is the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films starring Robert Downey, Jr. The personal tale of Musk's life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story.
