A modern epigone of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes and Steve Jobs, Elon Musk is the founder of companies such as PayPal, Tesla, SpaceX and SolarCity, each of which has generated shock waves in American business and industry. More than any other contemporary entrepreneur, Musk has invested his energies and his vast heritage to imagine a rich and bright future, like the visionary geniuses of the golden age of science fiction. In this compelling and documented portrait, Ashlee Vance recounts with unprecedented completeness the extraordinary career of the most daring businessman in Silicon Valley - an authentic Iron Man - and conducts a careful analysis of the new course of American entrepreneurship and its new generation of "creators". Thanks to the exclusive relationship with Musk, his family and his friends, the book traces the various stages of his life: from difficult childhood in South Africa to the heights of world business. Vance conversed with Musk for over fifty hours and interviewed nearly three hundred people to reconstruct the turbulent vicissitudes of the revolutionary companies founded by Musk, and to paint the portrait of a man with a complex personality who transformed the American industry, triggering new waves of innovation and also making many enemies. In an era in which many companies are more interested in pursuing easy earnings than in risking developing revolutionary technologies, Musk is the only entrepreneur with enough dynamism and visionary skills to face - and distort - multiple sectors in one go.
