"The Elon Musk biography written by a Ashlee Vance [Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future] was fun, but it didn't feel practical. Didn't feel like a 'moral biography.' There is another biography called 'The Engineer' which I thought was far better. It was 'written with an eye towards practical application and advice.'"
"This is much, much, much, much better than Ashlee's [Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future]. Ashlee's book was full of fun trivia, but not "mind-blowing". Not many passages that made you like, "Holy shit. That really makes one think". The Engineer, in my opinion, is way better in this regard. I liked both books; the details included in The Engineer are not included in Ashlee's book, so if you want to know more, you will not be disappointed."
"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!"
"This is a must-read."
