Tesla CEO Elon Musk Confirms Walter Isaacson is Writing his Biography

Earlier this year, it was reported that Tesla CEO Elon Musk may be in talks with a best-selling author about making a biography, and today, Musk has confirmed in a Tweet that author Walter Isaacson is indeed writing his biography, Tesla North reports.


Isaacson previously wrote a biography on late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, which sold over 3 million copies. “If you’re curious about Tesla, SpaceX & my general goings on, @WalterIsaacson is writing a biography,” noted Musk on Twitter.

As for working together, Musk added, “He’s shadowed me for several days so far,” referring to Isaacson. Musk further said of Isaacson’s work, “yeah, they’re all good, but I particularly liked his biography of Ben Franklin.”

Meanwhile, another book about Elon Musk written by tech reporter Ashlee Vance is currently on sale on Amazon for $2.99 USD, for the Kindle edition.
