Elon Musk's rocket ride: A biography of the world's most driven CEO

May 28, 2013 – 08:20 am
At Home With Elon Musk: The At both Tesla Motors and his rocket company, SpaceX (and to a lesser extent SolarCity, where he is the largest shareholder) Musk is insanely focused and maniacally demanding. But he gets away with it because he doesn’t ask more of his employees than he asks of himself. And the work is fantastically challenging.

Vance, the author of "Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future" (Ecco), told me in an interview, “I started to realize that it takes a certain type of person to work for Elon Musk. You have to be OK with going into a meeting and being yelled at and ridiculed in front of your peers if Elon is having a bad day. You shrug it off because you’re working at SpaceX or Tesla and doing work you really care about, and you know that Elon is going to push it to the limits. Some people are willing to do that, and some aren’t.”

SpaceX works because it has dramatically reduced the cost of going into space. Musk has turned the old system — complacent military contractors delivering outdated equipment at outlandish prices — on its head. A radio that cost $50, 000 to $100, 00 is $5, 000 in the Tesla version.
