## The biographer of Steve Jobs and Leonardo Da Vinci was with Elon Musk through the most turbulent days of his life to date. He takes us into the psyche of the world’s richest man.

*“I need to shift my mindset away from being in crisis mode, which it has been for about fourteen years now, or arguably most of my life” – Elon Musk*

For two years, internationally bestselling biographer and former editor of *Time* magazine Walter Isaacson shadowed Elon Musk, attended his meetings, walked his factories with him, and spent hours interviewing him, his family, friends, co-workers, and adversaries.

Now he joins Matthew d’Ancona in London to share the ultimate inside story of the most controversial innovator of our era: at once a rule-breaking visionary who helped to lead the world into the era of electric vehicles, private space exploration, and artificial intelligence, and a man-child prone to Jekyll and Hyde mood swings with a craving for drama and a maniacal intensity that is callous and at times destructive.’

Taking us from apartheid South Africa, where was Musk was hospitalized by bullies and emotionally tormented by his fantasist father, to the Twitter takeover and beyond, this is unmissable chance to get inside Elon Musk’s skin.

Who is the real Elon Musk? And are the demons that drive him also what it takes to drive innovation and progress? Get the inside scoop from the most influential biographer of our age.
