I am nearly done with the newly issued biography. My review is that while it contains a lot of interesting information, it needed at least one more editing to pull it together, and make it more coherent. It is written from too much of a fanboi voice; early in the book Vance calls SpaceX "Musk World," which is really unneeded, and is distracting. However, I will quote a few lines from late in the book when Vance is discussing the Model S, "Next time a car ad appears on your television, pause for a moment and listen to what is really being said. When you realize that the Volkswagen sign and drive 'event' is really code for, 'we're making this experience of buying a car slightly less miserable than usual,you'll realize how low the industry has sunk.'".
Brian H will have an orgasm at the opportunity to correct grammar in the book.
