Zero to Tesla by Sanjay Singhal is a brilliant, inspirational story, the biography of the brain behind Netflix, the inventor of Blackberry. It’s the story of a genius who hit rock bottom but fought on to emerge on the side of success, creating the much loved Audiobooks.com — and I use the app every day to listen to great literary voices — and becoming one of the great tech success stories in Canada. Sanjay Singhal offers secrets that led to his success and shows readers the importance of being determined, of taking risks, and making choices that challenge them to grow and go after the things they are passionate about.

From the very first page of this narrative, I was hooked. Yes, it begins with the author declaring bankruptcy. And the author’s voice will startle the reader: “Hello, Mr. Singhal, please have a seat. I understand this is the first time you’ve declared bankruptcy?” The revelation is startling, disturbing, and the reader wants to know why this man just wouldn’t give up? The answer is simple: success doesn’t give up. As you read Singhal’s biography, you begin to understand the power of persistence and the one ingredient to success that many people don’t get; you never have to give up until you succeed. Singhal never gave up and it is interesting how he dealt with setbacks. Zero to Tesla is a tale that will inspire readers and give fans a story they will definitely want to know. The writing is beautiful, insightful, and filled with interesting anecdotes, each with a lesson of its own. This is a book for you if you want to know what it really means to have a vision, to embrace a dream, and make it happen.
