“Insane Mode: How Elon Musk’s Tesla Sparked an Electric Revolution to End the Age of Oil” by Hamish McKenzie Review

The award-winning Tesla Model 3, a premium mass-market electric car that went on sale in 2018, has reconfigured the popular perception of Tesla and continues to transform the public’s relationship with motor vehicles–much like Ford’s Model T did nearly a century ago. At the same time, company CEO Elon Musk courts controversy and spars with critics through his Twitter account, just as Tesla’s ever-increasing debt teeters on junk bond status.

I personally was pretty sceptic about this book when I first was starting to read it. But I need to admit that i really enjoyed it and I learned a bunch of things from this book. Even though I’m a huge Tesla geek it still had learned me a few things about Tesla and why people and the big car companies like BMW, Audi etc might be very skeptical about fully electrical cars. 

If you are someone who wants to learn about Tesla or electrical cars and the long and hard history to electrical cars take this book and really spend time with it.

Its important to say that this book might not be a page-turner for some people but give it a shot and go into it with an open mind and without thinking that electrical cars are completely bull shit. 

The writing style and the whole format of this book was amazing and incredible well executed. I really wish that more books like this one could have been written like this one.

This books starts with talking about Tesla and Elon Musk. And in general all the ups and downs which both Tesla and Elon Musk had from beginning. And the second part of this book are more about other fully electrical cars companies which Tesla and Elon Musk have inspired or influenced at some point. 

This book needs to get points for going into depth about the fact that an electric car is faster, lighter and cleaner than internal combustion engines.

However don’t get it wrong is not a Tesla or Elon Musk Biography book. Its the story of the electric car, and since Tesla together with Elon Musk and other people involved in the company where the first to actually make it through as survive as a fully electrical company a huge piece of this book is about them.

But I get the point why some people (especially the die hard fans of combustion engines) might think that this book is nothing but a very long article. However give it a shot, and don’t trash this book just because you don’t like electrical cars. 

I’m actually here under a big impression because i wasn’t expecting how good this book would turn out to be in the end. You can really learn a lot of things in this book if you just give it a shot.

I give this book 5 / 5

"Co Naprawdę Myśli Elon Musk" by Maciej Gablankowski Review

It’s important to keep in mind that at the time of writing this review this book is only available in polish.

I’m not sure if you can call this a book a book because everything you will find in it is comments and statements made by Elon musk. Which means that this so-called book can’t be reviewed as a “normal” book.

All these comments which you will find in this book are about Elon Musk’s future plans / ideas, Tesla, SpaceX and about Solarcity. So, everything you can read in this book can be found on the internet somewhere and probably much better explained.

I need to be honest here, if you aren’t interested in Tesla, SpaceX or what Elon Musk and you don’t know anything about them than maybe this book isn’t the best idea to read for the moment.

However, don’t get me wrong, this book is amazing to have. Because you have all important comments and statements said by Elon Musk in one place. And if you will need it someday you know where to look.

It’s a short book, with a lot of empty space so as you may think, it’s a very quick read. Which can be read in 2-3 hours if you try.

Before reading this book you need to know something about Tesla, Space x and Elon musk just to fully understand this book.

I give this book 2,5 / 5
