South African-born Elon Musk is the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity. Musk wants to save our planet; he wants to send citizens into space, to form a colony on Mars; he wants to make money while doing these things; and he wants us all to know about it. 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.
Bit biased but awesome read

A fantastic narration of the story of Elon Musk. This amazing man's drive and passion rubs off at least a little bit on anyone who hears about it.
The narrator has done a brilliant job, using Musk's South African accent and even an English accent when necessary.
I was completely oblivious to how much there was behind Musk's success and I now really want to work in Tesla and have already started working it.
