Favorite quotes from the book:

“One thing that Musk holds in the highest regard is resolve, and he respects people who continue on after being told no.”

“I would like to allocate more time to dating, though. I need to find a girlfriend. That's why I need to carve out just a little more time. I think maybe even another five to ten—how much time does a woman want a week? Maybe ten hours? That's kind of the minimum? I don't know.”
