It is intrinsic to many wealthy people who have initiated a disruptive change in the society and the world to want to be remembered and the methods through which they achieved all their goals and objectives be saved for the coming generations to be informed. This can also be due to a fact that the journey they took to achieve what they did, is preserved and the world knows how they lived and what sacrifices, compromises, and leaps of faith they took to make everything possible and practical.
This is probably why there exists a myriad of biographies and sometimes, autobiographies. It is a means to communicate the way of living and explaining the decisions and life choices they took in the process. Recently, Elon Musk has shown interest in the same and his biography is in the process of being written.
People highly rely on Elon Musk to provide information about his life goings through his official Twitter account. He tweeted that if people are curious and intrigued by his companies, Tesla, and SpaceX and if they are interested in his regular life, they should follow Isaacson who will be working on his biography.
The process of the biography has already begun, and Walter Isaacson has begun shadowing Musk at his workplace. Walter Isaacson is a big name in literature. He also wrote the biography of Benjamin Franklin, and it is likely that he will write his own autobiography as well.
It is not the first time that literature about Musk’s life and achievements is to be published. Earlier, a biography by Ashlee Vance was also very well-received. It focused on Musk’s life and his career and was named ‘Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future.’ The Financial Times called it “a riveting portrait of Silicon Valley’s most driven entrepreneur […] personal flaws and all.” Earlier this month, another book came out on him by Tom Higgins, Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk, and the Bet of the Century. However, the book had some information that was denied by Musk later and raised significant news.
Musk expects a great deal from this book as Isaacson is a learned writer and had also written a biography for Steve Jobs.
