Like Buffett, who claims to read around 500 pages a day, Musk is the definition of a bookworm. When he was in grade school, he was reading ten hours a day, devouring everything in his library and the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, and completed a six-month BASIC course in just three days

Here I’m putting up a list of books recommended by Elon Musk.

Zero to One — Blake Masters and Peter Thiel

“The author has built multiple breakthrough companies, and this book shows how.” – Elon Musk.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy — Douglas Adams

“My favorite spaceship ever is in this book.” – Elon Musk.

Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies — Nick Bostrom

“Worth reading Superintelligence by Bostrom. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes.” – Elon Musk.

Benjamin Franklin: An American Life — Walter Isaacson

“I’m reading a great biography of Ben Franklin by Isaacson. Highly recommended.” – Elon Musk on twitter. .
