Do you want to know why Elon Musk, in one of the most successful and innovative entrepreneurs of our time?


This book offers an introduction to Musk, his business success while "saving the world" and the lessons that we can learn from him. It is not a text book nor a biography, but more of a cheat sheet for reading on the bus or in the bathroom, so that you can pick out the most significant points without having to carry around a bag of weighty tomes. You can read it all in one sitting, or look up specific case studies as and when you are looking for inspiration or direction. The 50 lessons outlined here are drawn from interviews Musk has given, from the numerous blogs and books written about him, and, most importantly, from the successes and failures on his road to becoming the real life "Iron Man".

I have been fascinated with business leaders who are innovative and tend to step outside the proverbial box in everything they do. This is one of the things that attracted me to Elon Musk and I have read several books about this amazing man in the past year. Hungry for more, I ran across author George Ilian's new "50 Life and Business Lessons from Elon Musk" and this is a great read. There is wonderful insight and inspiration here from a business leader who has been able to accomplish what so many others have only dreamed about. You won't find these thoughts compiled anywhere else and I loved the bonus materials as well. Definitely recommend.

Many people, including myself, primarily associate Elon Musk with the more modern news about his ventures – such as with SpaceX; but I found out recently that he has been involved with many internet start-ups that have gone on to be huge successes, and wanting to find out more about these previous ventures and gain further insight to his success is what led me to this book.

I find George Ilian’s books about entrepreneurs to be especially good dude to the layout: in this, the author offers a great deal of insight about Elon Musk in a biographical way, and then he extracts concise and strong lessons from what is discussed, which can then be applied to many different endeavors. I'll definitely be keeping this book in mind in the future.

I am impressed that such a little book can contain such a wealth of information on this enigmatic man! Now I feel like I understand Elon Musk much more, and the wisdom of his focusing on the upper end of the electric car market, rather than immediately making it available for the masses. That will come, I now see the plan. Thank you George Ilian - I can't wait to read the other books I've bought as well. I want to feel the energy of these amazingly successful and humanitarian people.

Elon Musk is my hero, the dad I never knew. I'm thankful for having read his story. He may not be the perfect man, but at least he gets to sleep on a bed full of money at night. Sure he has a lot of social problems, but he doesn't care. He just wants to do his own thing, which ultimately effects society big time. What I like about him is that he's not all talk. Some people just talk big but never do anything. On the other hand, Elon actually does things! He doesn't waste his time and talents complaining or bitching. He works hard, period. Although he's probably guilty of many things people bitch about, I'm always proud of him.

This book reads like a long essay that has been stitched together from well known Musk interviews and quotes. Lacks the final polish, doesn't flow very well and includes several spelling mistakes.
I was hoping to learn something new but instead read the authors take on fairly well known stories about the Tech superstar.

Although I enjoyed reading about the "highlights" of Elon Musk's life in this book, it was pretty repetitive after reading a different Elon Musk book - just kind of a Cliff notes version. It was an interesting read, of course, but I wish this author would proofread his work. The grammatical and spelling errors throughout his books leave me at a loss for words . . .

I will use the lessons from this book to learn and grow, I know that the best way to achieve success is to model successful people, that's why I bought this book in the first place.

Good overview and a base for further reading on Elon Musk. I would also happily recommend other books from this author.

I had read Ashley wance's Elon Musk before this. Nonetheless there were a lot of new things I learnt while going through this book. It also helped me refresh my knowledge about Musk and his projects. Overall a beautiful brief on Musk, however it needs some more proof reading to eliminate a few obvious grammatical and typographical errors.

This book is a collection of some Elon Musk's quotes. Elon is one of the biggest idols of mine, alongside of Benjamin Franklin etc. If you don't have time to read hus biography, read the compact version of it. All the quote can be found on internet though.

- liam_smith

Musk is replica of all those ordinary innovators who became extraordinary, well presented in this book. Multiple reading of this book is recommended.

- alberto_martinez

Inspiring but some examples or lessons seem like they are forced just to reach the number 50. It's a good book if you are interested in knowing about Elon's life and about his ideals.

- elliot_stewart

It's a pretty simple book touching all the important aspects in Musk's life...
Recommended for people who would like to get a brief insight into the lives of their role models before reading their biography.
