Ashlee Vance is one of the most prominent writers on technology today.

Reviews

"Along with views of youth and early geekdom...[Vance] relates suspenseful accounts of technical and financial crises, conducts tours of Musk's factories...and brings his story up to early 2016. Overall, the author offers a picture of a brilliant, driven man...A modern American success story, neither overly earnest nor unreservedly adulatory."--Kirkus Reviews
"An informative and easy-to-follow biography of one of today's top innovators for young readers."--Booklist
"Vance maintains a lively pace and explains the groundbreaking technology in a way that is accessible and exciting....Highly recommended for high school and ambitious middle school readers for its insights into Musk, technology, and venture capitalism."--School Library Journal
"Musk may not be as instantly recognizable to teens as Zuckerberg or Jobs, but given his work with PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX, he should be. Vance delves into all of his work with detailed passion.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A valuable addition to STEM-themed collections."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
