    Elon Musk é, provavelmente, a maior esperança
    da Humanidade por uma verdadeira revolução tecnológica

    Elon Musk é visto em Silicon Valley como o mais excitante, imprevisível e ambicioso empresário da atualidade - uma mistura de Steve Jobs e Bill Gates. Para muitos, este visionário pode mesmo vir a ter um impacto na humanidade sem paralelo. Este é o livro que conta a sua história.
    Elon Musk construiu a sua fama e fez fortuna com algumas das mais bem-sucedidas empresas de tecnologia, como a PayPal, vendida à eBay por 1,5 mil milhões de dólares, investindo depois em projetos com potencial para revolucionar o mundo. A Tesla Motors, no fabrico de carros elétricos, a SpaceX, na indústria espacial, e a SolarCity, nos painéis solares, estão a transformar os seus segmentos industriais, provocando um salto evolutivo no setor empresarial americano.
    A insistência de Elon Musk nestas áreas de alto risco, tocando em poderes fortemente instituídos, valeu-lhe assombros de falência e ruína; da sua resiliência e visão nasceria, porém, uma das maiores reviravoltas da história empresarial dos EUA, sendo hoje visto como um visionário de sucesso.
    Para escrever esta biografia, o experiente jornalista Ashlee Vance (New York Times e Bloomberg Businessweek) obteve a autorização oficial e a colaboração do próprio Elon Musk, com quem teve inúmeras entrevistas e conversas ao longo dos mais de 2 anos em que acompanhou a sua vida. Em paralelo, as conversas com 300 pessoas das esferas pessoal e profissional de Musk permitiram mostrar todos os ângulos que compõem a história deste gestor e empreendedor genial, que está a dedicar a sua vida a inventar um futuro melhor.

    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 Junior.



    The personal tale of Musk's life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story. He was a freakishly bright kid who was bullied brutally at school, and abused by his father. In the midst of these rough conditions, and the violence of apartheid South Africa, Musk still thrived academically and attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he paid his own way through school by turning his house into a club and throwing massive parties.



    He started a pair of huge dot-com successes, including PayPal, which eBay acquired for $1.5 billion in 2002. Musk was forced out as CEO and so began his lost years in which he decided to go it alone and baffled friends by investing his fortune in rockets and electric cars. Meanwhile Musk's marriage disintegrated as his technological obsessions took over his life ...



    Elon Musk is the Steve Jobs of the present and the future, and for the past twelve months, he has been shadowed by tech reporter, Ashlee Vance.
