Recent reports suggest that American author Walter Isaacson has been authorized to write Elon Musk’s biography. Elon Musk, Tesla and SpaceX’s chief executive, shared the news in the latest post on Twitter. However, it peculiarly did not provide any details about when it might be available for publication.
Moreover, Isaacson is possibly most famous in technology circles for writing the certified self-described biography of Steve Jobs, the Apple co-founder. The 656-page book came at the tail-end of Jobs’ life; as a matter of fact, it was publicized approximately a month prior to schedule thanks to Jobs’ death on October 5, 2011.
Earlier this year, Isaacson stated In an interview with Yahoo Finance that Musk,
“in some ways [is] the Steve Jobs of our time.”
Isaacson added that both figures represent massive spirits, stern drive, and a willingness to play an all-or-nothing game.
If you’re curious about Tesla, SpaceX & my general goings on, @WalterIsaacson is writing a biography

Furthermore, Isaacson stated that,
“He’s crazy enough to think he can change the world and thus he might be one of the ones who do change the world.”
Nevertheless, it’s a little too soon to compare Musk with Jobs, at least regarding legacy. Tesla boss Elon Musk turned 50 back in June, evidently seems to be in good health, and has displayed no marks of slowing down or losing interest in his several projects. Should he make good on his Mars colonization plans, that would be a pleased noble on the belt of Elon Musk.
