There's a new non-fiction best-seller and it's all about one of our favorite automotive leaders. Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by tech journalist Ashlee Vance topped the best-seller list for the week ending May 23 over at Audible.

I haven't finished my copy yet, but we do know a few things about the book, including that Tesla CEO Musk himself said at least one anecdote in it is not true. The story about Musk forbidding an employee to leave work to attend the birth of his child is "total BS," Musk said after the book was released.

Published last week, the book is available at your local bookseller, Amazon, and Audible, among other outlets. We'll be hosting a reader's review discussion of the book next week Tuesday in the afternoon, Eastern time, so you've got a week to read the book if you want to participate. Stay tuned for details.
