Overview

Elon Musk is a truly fascinating character. When thinking about how he should live his life, he concluded early on that the best goal he could pursue was to ensure the future of humanity – something we all know is surely not guaranteed, looking at some of our behavior over the last 100 years. How he then decided to tackle this goal is the biggest lesson in reverse engineering you'll ever see, and after this, you may try to think in a more Musk-like way.
