** AN ABSOLUTE MUST-READ: A BRAND NEW BIOGRAPHY OF THE WORLD'S RICHEST MAN AND NEW OWNER OF TWITTER! **

Often in the news for his entrepreneurial exploits and controversial tweets, Elon Musk is one of the richest and most well-known people on Earth. Who is this boundary-pushing billionaire with grand plans of inhabiting Mars, and what lies at the heart of his vision? Why is he so utterly unafraid of risk?

As an awkward South African schoolboy who loved comics and science fiction, Musk’s early years and singular family background were crucial in forming his stellar ambitions. Journalist and author Michael Vlismas, who attended the same high school as Musk, knows well the environment that shaped him and offers new insights into Musk’s development, including his troubled relationship with his father.

Tracing his remarkable life, from his Pretoria childhood to his move to Canada at 17 and then to the US – where Musk made millions out of PayPal and built Tesla and SpaceX into two of the world’s most famous companies – this is the story of a man driven to preserve the optimism he sees in humanity and find a future for humans ‘out there among the stars’.
