As the title suggests, Elon Musk is the subject of Ashlee Vance’s new book, “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX and the Quest for a Fantastic Future”. The Washington Post has pulled out some of the best quotes from the book.
14. “I wanted him to meet me behind security so he couldn’t pack a gun.” — Jim Cantrell, describing his first meeting with Elon Musk.

They met in an airport, hit it off, and would later travel to Russia hoping to buy rockets.
