With the launch of the mass produced, affordable electric car, the Tesla 3, along with the progressively successful SpaceX program, Elon Musk is no doubt the new superstar of the tech world. The chain of successes (though not without setbacks) has catapulted him into the limelight and as with many successful figures of the past and today, begs the question: how did he get to what he is today? If you are like us, curious about how a seemingly ordinary man has accomplished so many things in 44 years, well, then here’s an infographic created by Funders and Founders’ Anna Vital that will ‘walk you through’ Elon Musk’s life so far, thus saving you from having to read stacks of materials to learn more about this man and his larger-than-life aspiration.

But of course, if you like to read as much as Elon did when he was eight (and possibly, all his life), you may want to check out veteran tech journalist Ashlee Vance’s book which traces the man’s humble beginning to building an empire that is changing America and the world.
