Follow Elon Musk on a journey from South Africa to Mars
About the Book
"I doubt anyone, even Musk's employees, will get through it without some big insights about Elon and his companies."
"Erik Nordeus has done a commendable job, scouring the web of resources to build a narrative of Elon Musk - a man too busy to get involved in a biography. It serves well as a first pass on the story of Elon Musk. I actually learned quite a bit."
"The Engineer is loaded with clues as to what comprises such a hard driven visionary. The research Erik Nordeus did to write this book is remarkable."
"I've finished reading The Engineer and I can only recommend! Very impressive journey!"
