Product Description
Emmett McHomes, the clumsy, overgrown, dyslexic fifth grader, is having a tough year at St. Ignatius Middle School. The girls laugh at him. The cool kids pick on him. His only two friends are the nerd and the fat kid. Even the nuns who teach him suspect that his soul was stolen by the devil. And, on top of all this, Sister Mary Moody has told him that he will flunk fifth grade if he does not act more mature, make some friends, and improve his studies. Armed only with wild ideas and stories, he strives for acceptance and even respect from his classmates, family, and a ghost he meets in the attic of the school.

The book bursts with telling anecdotes and quotes that illuminate who Musk is. Here are some that stood out:. ’ Bit by bit, he won me over. ” — Justine Musk, Elon’s ex-wife. “We’re all hanging out in this cabana at the Hard Rock Cafe, and Elon is there reading some obscure Soviet rocket manual that was all moldy and looked like it had been bought on eBay. ” — Kevin Hartz, an early PayPal investor, describing an outing in Las Vegas that was intended as a time to celebrate the company’s success.

[ Why shades of Asperger’s Syndrome are the secret to building a great tech company ]. 5. “I believe the second sentence out of his mouth was, ‘I think a lot about electric cars. ’ And then he turned to me and said, ‘Do you think about electric cars. ’ ” — Christie Nicholson, the daughter of an adviser to Elon Musk, recalling first meeting Musk at a party. As a college student he was already hooked on electric cars. ” — Elon Musk explaining himself to a potential investor.
