Successful cases of successful people who have taken a lot from reading at leisure.

World-famous entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Tesla and Space X Elon Mask, during his childhood in South Africa, read two books per day. In his numerous interviews, in particular, for the Y-combinator startup incubator, he emphasized that Isaac Asimov’s and Tolkien’s works were the source of inspiration for him.
