Every Book Elon Musk Mentioned on Twitter (with Tweets!)

I enjoy reading biographies. But I love autobiographies even more. Knowing how someone thinks is fascinating.

But… what if they never wrote a book?

They probably tweet!

So, I decided to dowload every tweet written by a few interesting people.

The first person was Elon.

What’s even cooler is I found every book he mentioned on Twitter.

So I gathered the full list and put it right here (with tweets!), for your reading pleasure 🙂
