Reviews

"Exemplary...[Higgins] has interviewed hundreds of people associated with Tesla, both past and present. He knows the financial story like the back of his hand. * The Times *
A masterclass in narrative journalism, telling the extraordinary story of Tesla's rise to become one of the most fascinating companies of the 21st century, with inside-the-room detail and color that give it a cinematic feel * Bradley Hope, co-author of the bestseller BILLION DOLLAR WHALE *
No matter how you slice it, the story of Elon Musk and Tesla is a riveting one. In Power Play, Tim Higgins also makes the tale of Musk and Tesla compulsively readable, to say nothing of lively, fun and insightful! * William D. Cohan, bestselling author of HOUSE OF CARDS *
Tim Higgins's electric narrative takes us through Tesla's every hairpin turn.... This case study on the thin line between madness and genius is set against a monumental backdrop: the rivalry between Silicon Valley and Detroit to develop and popularize the electric car * John Helyar, co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller BARBARIANS AT THE GATE *
Tim Higgins's portrait of Tesla in Power Play is simultaneously inspirational and troubling, revealing Elon Musk's risky scrambles to invent the future he's constantly promising to deliver. Through the tales of Tesla's frequent near-death experiences and executive firings, readers benefit from Higgins's depth of reporting in both Silicon Valley and Detroit * Sarah Frier, Financial Times prize-winning author of NO FILTER *
Readers fascinated by the hype of Tesla history will find a gold mine of facts and foibles in this immersive analysis * Kirkus Reviews *
in-depth and well-balanced ... a sometimes appalling, occasionally inspiring, and always entertaining saga * Publishers Weekly *
A well-documented and comprehensive look at Tesla, Elon Musk, and the people involved with its creation and successes * Library Journal *

[A] sweeping history of the electric-car juggernaut...I've covered Tesla as a reporter since 2016. When Higgins writes about facts and situations I'm familiar with, I can attest he's right on the button, every time
* Los Angeles Times *

Tim Higgins's compelling and deeply reported history of Tesla addresses the essential question of how this upstart automaker came from nowhere to become one of the most valuable companies on Earth...An exceptional work of business journalism * Washington Post *

Tense, detailed and well-crafted... Power Play is a business thriller for real.... A clear, deeply reported and engaging account of how Musk launched a truly transformational car

* Associated Press *

Higgins, who covers technology and autos for the Wall Street Journal, has done an outstanding job. He's performed a deep dive into the nuts and volts of Tesla. His book is extensively researched, including interviews with (unfortunately but understandably) anonymous current and former execs

* Minneapolis Star Tribune *

Richly detailed... Higgins manages to deliver an evenhanded account that brings us up to date from Ashlee Vance's 2015 biography of Musk-the prior definitive Tesla account-and has a more urgent feel, given everything that has happened the past few years

* The Information *

a high-resolution portrait of how exactly an unusual man and an unusual company managed a meteoric rise.... The tale of Tesla's ascent is inherently dramatic and compellingly told * NPR.org *
A riveting saga...Power Play reads like a novel * The Free Lance-Star *
