“For two years, Isaacson shadowed Musk, attended his meetings, walked his factories with him and spent hours interviewing him, his family, friends, coworkers, and adversaries,” states the publisher’s website, simonandschuster.com.
A professor of history at Tulane University, Isaacson also has authored biographies of Leonardo da Vinci, Steve Jobs, Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
He is a former editor of Time Magazine, former CEO and chairman of CNN, and former CEO of the Aspen Institute.
Distinguished Voices lectures are free and open to the public, supported by the UNF Foundation and co-hosted by the World Affairs Council of Jacksonville’s Global Issues Evenings.
