Of course, the announced book by Isaacson will not be the first writing about electrical and space visionary Musk. In fact, an official biography already exists entitled “Elon Musk: How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future”, published in 2015 and written by bestselling author and Bloomberg journalist Ashlee Vance. However, given Musk’s constant activity, a second biography does not seem so surprising.

In the book Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk and the Bet of the Century by Tom Higgins, published this month, there is also a spicy anecdote about Musk and Apple CEO Tim Cook. TechCrunch says Higgins is writing about an alleged phone call in which Cook reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Tesla to Musk. Musk is said to have replied that he would agree – but only if he is appointed CEO of Apple himself. Cook’s answer to this was a concise but ugly “F *** you”. Musk made it clear in a tweet that he had never spoken or written to Tim Cook. Higgins tweeted that Musk had “many options” to respond but didn’t.
