“Elon Musk PDF Summary”

A Restless Boy… Waiting To Change The World

Elon Reeve Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa on June 28, 1971. His father, Errol Musk was an engineer and entrepreneur, and his mother Maye was a well-known model and nutritionist. Elon had two younger brothers, Kimbal and Tosca.

Endowed with a photographic memory and an appetite for reading, Elon did well in high school. His parents divorced during his teen years, and at age 17 Musk left South Africa to go to Canada. His mother Maye was a Canadian citizen, and so Elon got the Canadian passport.

Elon eventually enrolled at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He chose Queen’s because he felt the college had more beautiful women than other universities.

When his siblings went to Canada, Elon and Kimbal had a habit of calling some interesting people to arrange a conversation and lunch.

They were able to meet some influential people including the marketing director of the Blue Jays baseball team, a business writer for the Globe newspaper and a Bank of Nova Scotia executive.

Elon studied Administration and began selling parts of computers and PCs mounted in his dormitory.

He was starting to excel academically, and after two years at Queen’s, he applied for a transfer to the University of Pennsylvania with a scholarship.

He decided to study economics at Wharton School and earned a bachelor’s degree in physics.
