Business & Finance Biographies
Penguin Random House
South African born Elon Musk is the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity. Musk wants to save our planet; he wants to send citizens into space, to form a colony on Mars; he wants to make money while doing these things, and he wants us all to know about it. He is the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films starring Robert Downey Junior. The personal tale of Musk's life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story. He was a freakishly bright kid who was bullied brutally at school, and abused by his father. In the midst of these rough conditions, and the violence of apartheid South Africa, Musk still thrived academically and attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he paid his own way through school by turning his house into a club and throwing massive parties. He started a pair of huge dot-com successes, including PayPal, which eBay acquired for $1.5 billion in 2002. Musk was forced out as CEO and so began his lost years in which he decided to go it alone and baffled friends by investing his fortune in rockets and electric cars. Meanwhile, Musk's marriage disintegrated as his technological obsessions took over his life...Elon Musk is the Steve Jobs of the present and the future, and for the past twelve months, he has been shadowed by tech reporter, Ashlee Vance. Elon Musk: How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future is an important, exciting and intelligent account of the real-life Iron Man.

Business & Finance Biographies

Stories of entrepreneurs and the growth of influential companies

A business and finance biography is a detailed description of someone’s life, professional background, education history, achievements, and skill set. A bio presents a person’s life by highlighting important aspects such as their unique skill set, details of their professional experience, notable projects they are involved in, and an analysis of their personality.

Business biography books tell the behind-the-scenes stories of the greatest minds in the business industry, including Walt Disney, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos. The best business biographies are Alibaba, by Duncan Clark, Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, and Shoe Dog, by Phil Knight.

Business biographies are narrative nonfiction works that follow the lives of industry leaders and chart the launch and growth of important organizations. These books often draw from interviews and mix facts and history with philosophy.

One of the most efficient and effective ways to take advantage of the experience of others is by reading biographies and autobiographies.

Memoirs are a window into the minds of the people we admire and want to understand. They help explain their achievements. And provide a map to our own aspirations. Mark Twain wrote, “The man who does not read good books is no better than the man who can’t.”

Walter Isaacson is an incredible writer and it speaks volumes, for both of them, that Steve Jobs approached him to write his biography. Walter has written other great biographies of Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin that are well worth reading. He also wrote The Wise Men and The Innovators which are fantastic!

Elon Musk - Paypal, Tesla, Space X, Solar City... Elon is one of the great innovators and entrepreneurs of our time. And author Ashlee Vance delivers the goods. This book is fast-paced and full of entrepreneurial case studies.

Elon had one of the all-time greatest weeks of any entrepreneur last year when a Space X rocket docked with the space station and came back to Earth and landed on a drone ship in the Atlantic, and Tesla took record orders for its Model 3 car. As of April 2017, Tesla has a market capitalization larger than Ford and is closing in on GM. I want to drive my Tesla on Mars, and Elon is the guy to get me there!

Sophia Amoruso is the founder of the Nasty Gal clothing empire which started as an eBay store. Her autobiography is filled with inspiring life and business lessons. There is a new Netflix series inspired by Sophia's best-selling book. the series follows the rise of Amoruso's multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.

The incredible story of Nike founder Phil Knight was written by the man himself. Go Ducks! This book is very well written and inspiring. Phil Knight comes across as a person of intellect and integrity and the kind of guy that you root for to succeed. He knows what is important. He also addresses honestly the sacrifices that were made in his family life by pursuing such an all-consuming goal.
