Elon Musk shares 11 audiobook recommendations, says ‘will take a while to get through, but…’


Elon Musk recently shared 11 audiobook recommendations on X. Additionally, he mentioned two books that he hopes someone will turn into audiobooks.

As we entered the seventh month of this year - July, Elon Musk shared 11 audiobook recommendations for “those who think about Rome every day”. He said the books would “take a while to get through but are very much worthwhile”.

“Some audiobook recommendations,” wrote Elon Musk on X. The 53-year-old’s first suggestion is The Story of Civilization by Will and Ariel Durant. The next two books that the richest person in the world suggested are the Penguin edition of The Iliad and The Road to Serfdom by Friedrich Hayek.

Musk’s fourth recommendation is American Caesar by William Manchester. The fifth on the list is Masters of Doom by David Kushner.

The Wages of Destruction by Adam Tooze and The Storm of Steel by Ernst Junger are sixth and seventh on the list, respectively.

The eighth book is The Guns of August by Barbara W Tuchman.

The Gallic Wars by Julius Caesar, Twelve Against the Gods by William Bolitho Ryall, and Genghis Khan by Jack Weatherford are also on the list.

Earlier in June this year, the Tesla CEO shared podcast recommendations on a stream on his platform X (formerly Twitter). He said that Dan Carlin’s “Hardcore History” podcast, known for its “unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists” as per Apple Podcasts page, is his top recommendation.

He also suggested “Explorers Podcast” which focuses on “the lives, explorations and discoveries of history’s greatest explorers”. The Tesla boss is also a fan of “The Age of Napoleon Podcast” which is based on “the life and career of Napoleon Bonaparte as well as the general context of Europe between the early eighteenth and early nineteenth century”.
