I would suggest to read "Losing my virginity" first so you get a better understanding of Branson's life. I did it the other way unfortunately. During his book he will tell various stories about his life that affected his way of thinking. It's a good motivation book for anyone considering his/her own business. The most important lesson (aside other great ones) that I took with me: Do it for fun - not for money! And he is damn right.

I strongly recommend this book even if you do not open your own business.

I have always been a fan of Richard Branson, but until reading this book did not know many details about his life. He has lived a "large" life in business and adventure because he is not crippled by over analysis and naysayers. If his gut says go for it, he does.
Now he is on a mission to deal with global warming by looking for ways to live our lives the way we wish and to do no harm to the planet. Go get 'em, Richard!

This is an enjoyable light read. While he covers his life and his lessons learned, I enjoyed catching his attitude--one of bringing fun to business. I'm on my second reading of it now--so that says something.

This is a very interesting and informative book. Richard Branson is not trying to sell anything; he's just explaining how he came to be what he is today.

Branson is completelly right that people must have fun with whatever they do. Otherwise, they will become miserable robots regreting missed opportunities one day.

In a way, like many (all?) successful people, Richard Branson is full of himself. But if you can overlook this you will enjoy reading this book and may get some lessons from it.

Format: Paperback
Great book, a lot of good information and a really interesting read. The only time where I felt like I had to work to get through this book is when he started to discuss his opinions on "Going Green" and all of that nonsense. In my opinion he should have written a book entirely about going green and the green way of life and left it out of this book, which would have been fine without it. Other than that it was a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in business or entrepreneurship.
