He is the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films starring Robert Downey Junior.

The personal tale of Musk’s life comes with all the trappings one associates with a great, drama-filled story. He was a freakishly bright kid who was bullied brutally at school, and abused by his father. In the midst of these rough conditions, and the violence of apartheid South Africa, Musk still thrived academically and attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he paid his own way through school by turning his house into a club and throwing massive parties.

He started a pair of huge dot-com successes, including PayPal, which eBay acquired for $1.5 billion in 2002. Musk was forced out as CEO and so began his lost years in which he decided to go it alone and baffled friends by investing his fortune in rockets and electric cars. Meanwhile Musk’s marriage disintegrated as his technological obsessions took over his life …

  • An Instant New York Times Bestseller!

    Communicate boldly and effectively like never before with #1 New York Times bestselling author Bishop T.D. Jakes.​

    In Don’t Drop the Mic, Bishop Jakes speaks to readers about communication and how the ways we speak and interact with others can be part of our everyday ministries. He helps readers understand:

    • Why the way we speak and the words we use matter
    • How speaking well, no matter your topic or audience, improves your chances of getting the result you want
    • How to craft your message, whether it’s a simple email or a speech under the spotlights, to connect with listeners
    • Why good communication is important for building connection and community
    • How sharing God’s Word produces abundant fruit

    Drawing lessons from Scripture and his own life, Jakes gives career advice for those who have or want to grow into a speaking career, but he also provides clear direction and insight for everyone who gives presentations, writes emails, or talks to other people in their job or home life.

    There will be practical advice about how to craft insightful and meaningful communications, but the heart of this book is really about how we can communicate more clearly to build community and share the hope of Christ in our everyday lives.

    The more adept we become at using all available resources to convey our message, the greater our impact. From lovers to litigators, entrepreneurs to entertainers, and bloggers to board members, we all want to communicate more effectively, intimately, and efficiently. Whether you’re interviewing for a new position, proposing a new business plan, auditioning for a performance, delivering a report for your committee, teaching Sunday school, or sharing your heart with a loved one, this book will help.

  • ‘A beguiling exploration of how flexibility can contribute to creativity, purpose and happiness.’ Justine Roberts, founder of Mumsnet

    ‘Straight-talking self-help… Inspiring words, practical help and a fresh way of seeing things that we’ll be forcing on just about everyone we know.’Stylist

    ‘A no-nonsense guide to thinking and behaving more flexibly in order to have a happier, better, less frenetic life’ Marie Claire

    As featured in Sunday Times Style, Stella, Stylist, Grazia, The Sun, Bustle, Marie Claire

    Reinventing the rules for a smarter, happier life.

    Flex is a creative, rebellious way to live. It’s about looking at routines (like the nine to five) and social norms (like women bearing the brunt of the ’emotional load’ at home) and bending and re-shaping them.

    Flex is looking within and understanding yourself, your body and the patterns of your relationships, and working out how to live, earn money and be happy in a way that is perfect for you and your unique talents.

    Flex is knowing that the world is changing fast. The jobs we were trained for in school won’t exist in a decade. The career ladder has been replaced with the portfolio.

    If you feel stuck, tired, not at your best, bored… this book is for you.

    If you are burning with ideas but stuck in an environment that squashes them… this book is for you.

    If you are a rebel at heart… this book is for you.

    Flex is reinventing the rules for a smarter, happier future.

  • How to Protect Your Leadership Influence and Power

    You’ve worked hard to achieve your dreams and goals. Many others have done the same—only to lose it all in the end. Every day, we read about successful people in various walks of life who have lost their power and influence. They’ve been fired, forced to resign, or shamed out of public life. They no longer have a market for their gifts, and they may even face criminal proceedings. These leaders have lost the trust of their companies, constituents, nations, followers, and families. Many were surprised to discover that their talents alone were not enough to prevent their downfall.

    Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, orcharacter.

    Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership: How Values, Morals, Ethics, and Principles Affect Leaders, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effectiveand enduring.
