From the author of Steve Jobs and other bestselling biographies, this is the astonishingly intimate story of Elon Musk, the most fascinating and controversial innovator of our era—a rule-breaking visionary who helped to lead the world into the era of electric vehicles, private space exploration, and artificial intelligence. Oh, and took over Twitter. When Elon Musk was a kid in South Africa, he was regularly beaten by bullies. One day a group pushed him down some concrete steps and kicked him until his face was a swollen ball of flesh. He was in the hospital for a week. But the physical scars were minor compared to the emotional ones inflicted by his father, an engineer, rogue, and charismatic fantasist. His father’s impact on his psyche would linger. He developed into a tough yet vulnerable man-child, prone to abrupt Jekyll-and-Hyde mood swings, with an exceedingly high tolerance for risk, a craving for drama, an epic sense of mission, and a maniacal intensity that was callous and at times destructive. At the beginning of 2022—after a year marked by SpaceX launching thirty-one satellites, Tesla selling a million cars, and him becoming the richest man on earth—Musk spoke ruefully about his compulsion to stir up dramas. “I need to shift my mindset away from being in crisis mode, which it has been for about fourteen years now, or arguably most of my life,” he said. It was a wistful comment, not a New Year’s resolution. Even as he said it, he was secretly buying up shares of Twitter, the world’s ultimate playground. Over the years, whenever he was in a dark place, his mind went back to being bullied on the playground. Now he had the chance to own the playground.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. The result is the revealing inside story, filled with amazing tales of triumphs and turmoil, that addresses the question: are the demons that drive Musk also what it takes to drive innovation and progress?
Vår evne til å konsentrere oss er i fritt fall. Collegestudenter i USA har klarer nå i gjennomsnitt å holde fokus på én oppgave i 65 sekunder, og kontormedarbeidere kun i tre minutter. I Stjålet fokus legger den internasjonale bestselgerforfatteren Johann Hari ut på en langstrakt reise for å snakke med verdens ledende eksperter og finne ut hvorfor dette skjer med oss - og det han konkluderer med er at alt vi trodde vi visste om dette feltet er feil.Vi tror vår mangle evne til å konsentrere oss er våre egen personlige falitt - en skavank ved hver og en av oss. Det er det ikke. Dette har blitt gjort mot oss - av mektige eksterne krefter - og det har blitt gjort over tid. Vårt fokus har blitt stjålet fra oss.Hari oppdager at det finnes tolv dypereliggende årsaker til denne krisen, og han viser oss hvordan han oppdaget det gjennom en engasjerende reise - en ferd som tar ham fra Silicon Valley-avhoppere, til vegetarianere som diagnostiserer hunder med ADHD, fra en favela i Rio der alle har mistet konsentrasjonen på en spesielt surrealistisk måte, til et kontor på New Zealand som oppdaget en bemerkelsesverdig teknikk som ga deres ansatte konsentrasjonsevnen tilbake.For viktigst av alt er dette en bok som viser oss hvordan vi kan gjenvinne vårt fokus, dersom vi bestemmer oss for å kjempe for det. Svarene vil både overraske og engasjere deg. Dette er en bok om vår pågående oppmerksomhetskrise ulik noen annen du har lest.
"We are approaching a critical threshold in the history of our species. Everything is about to change. Soon you will live surrounded by AIs. They will organise your life, operate your business, and run core government services.

As our fragile governments sleepwalk into disaster, we face an existential dilemma: unprecedented harms on one side, the threat of overbearing surveillance on the other. Can we forge a narrow path between catastrophe and dystopia? This groundbreaking book from the ultimate AI insider establishes "the containment problem"-the task of maintaining control over powerful technologies-as the essential challenge of our age"--
