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.

Loved to dewl in thoughts and detailed actions of Musk. A must listen biography. I totally could relate to the his childhood obsession with comic books and video games, which mostly revolve around saving the world. Which partly explains his passion to make humans interplanetry species.

Learned a great deal about habits, but felt unnecessary dramatizations of certain examples. Though you must listen to it.
