This standalone is best enjoyed when you don't read any reviews or spoilers. Going in blind is best. Trust me.
When my eyes are closed, the monster can't see me.
When I sing a song in my head, the monster can't hear me.
When I pretend my bedroom is a playground where I play hide-and-seek, the monster can't find me.
The darkness should frighten me.
I should worry I'll find more monsters...monsters scarier than him.
But I'm not afraid.
It's safe here.
When I'm inside of my head....
He. Can't. Ever. Touch. Me.

In Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance provides the first inside look into the extraordinary life and times of Silicon Valley's most audacious entrepreneur. Written with exclusive access to Musk, his family, and his friends, the book traces the entrepreneur's journey from a rough upbringing in South Africa to the pinnacle of the global business world. Vance spent more than 30 hours in conversation with Musk and interviewed close to 300 people to tell the tumultuous stories of Musk's world-changing companies - PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX, and SolarCity - and to characterize a man who has renewed American industry and sparked new levels of innovation while making plenty of enemies along the way. Vance uses Musk's story to explore one of the pressing questions of our time: Can the nation of inventors and creators that led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk - one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history - is a contemporary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science fiction. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian.

I want vengeance. I want her. My best friend and his sister - the girl I vowed could trust in me and whom I would always protect - dropped off the map two years ago. My own father pledged assurances that they'd been living a life they deserved. Lies. Hell hath no fury like a man willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill his promise. I may be a greedy sonofab*, but I'm also a loyal one. Cross me or my brothers, and I'll come for your throat. And my teeth are razor sharp. When I discover the corruption running deep within my own bloodline, I take a stand to right the wrongs. I had no idea their darkness would lead me to the light-to her. The Lust I have for her will keep me grounded. The Wrath for those who betrayed us will ignite the fight inside me. And the Greed for victory will consume our enemies in a tidal wave of Hell's fury. They say the three gates of Hell are Lust, Wrath, and Greed. Well, open up, motherf*kers...Daddy's home. I am Micah Dixon. I am Greed. Contains mature themes.
