Elon Musk--Paypal Mafia Boss

1.今天的内容谈到了Musk的第二次创业历程,让我很是佩服的是他的这种精神,真的是Do or die but don't give up.他经受了两次coups,却还可以坚持自己想要的继续前行,真实内心强大。而且他在知道结果后,还可以保持relent,是一般人难以做到的。

2. 虽然比笔记写的不是很好,但书一直在坚持读。这是我参加读书会以来读的第三本原版书,我不得不说,作者的功底实在太强,用的全是高级词汇,很多GRE的感觉,他竟然可以用的这么得心应手还接地气;书中的精彩表达特别多,小词,一词多义,以及高级词汇融合在一起,这本书真的在词汇量和阅读理解方面有很大的帮助。

3. 因为是第一次读传记加之最近身体一直不适,所以,感悟不像书友们那样深刻,这是我从前没有关注过的领域,很难产生mental representation的感觉,无论如何,坚持下去总是好的,慢慢来吧!
