Everybody wants to know Mark Zuckerberg. Young people adore every inch of this incredible guy. Girls would die for even a short time with him (Sorry, Pricilla). Everyone -- just everyone wants a piece of him. Well, after all, the world is swarmed by1.5 billion Digital Natives and Immigrants who use Facebook, the company he founded inside his cramped dorm-size room.
Then here comes Elon Musk who has climbed up the ladder of the most influential and successful people in the world. His name is already permanently imprinted on Forbes Magazine. Not only does he lead and run today's biggest companies, but this guy is literally going for the moon--err, Mars, actually. Mr. Musk does not aim to conquer the world with his brilliance, ingenuity, and enormous confidence in human capabilities, but he is aiming to conquer the universe.
He is the business executive and CTO of SpaceX, business executive and chief share holder of Tesla Motors. He is also the CEO of SolarCity. His total assets are worth 11.9 billion USD as indicated by Forbes 2015.
To say that this man dares to push the limit of the human knowledge is an understatement. Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, the sole governing body for the ultimate aerospace records, has awarded Musk with FAI Gold Space Medal. This is the same awarded that Astronaut Neil Armstrong. To know the reason behind this award, you simply have to flip one chapter after the other.
Although he is referred to as the real-life Iron Man, Elon Musk proves to be all human, too. His life was not all candies, rainbows, and unicorns. He has had his share of heartaches, failures, and a handful of critics that any genius of his caliber has to endure on a daily basis. This facet of his life brings more shades of colors to his already colorful existence. Even when Robert Downey Jr. had learned that he would be playing the role of 'Iron Man', his first words were:" I need to sit down with Elon Musk."
This book illustrates how Elon Musk is thriving to satisfy everyone's futuristic fancies. This is not to hail him as the best man who ever worked on the face of the earth, but to prove his authenticity as a genius and as a man of vision.
