Overall, a good and interesting book. It doesn't take long to read so I would recommend it.
This man has is one of a kind and you find out what he has done and how he came to do the things he has done.
Its a fantastic quick read, even for me.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone, especially if you are an entrepreneur or thinking you may want to become one.
My respect for Sir Richard have grown more highly after reading Screw It,Let's Do It! Read this book, you will be better off having done it. We can all do with some inspiration and help.
The book you don't read, won't help. Invest in yourself and your future today! You will be glad you did.
Heck, Screw It, Just Do It!
Richard Branson's book was a pleasant surprise to me. It feels good to hear from someone who is filthy rich and yet so down-to-earth. I would recommend this book to friends, family members and co-workers without hesitation. It is a tiny little book that can change one's life forever.

The book is a collection of Richard Branson's lessons and life mottos. Surprisingly a lot of them (probably half) were forged when he was a kid. Much of them are very stoic-like for an apparently very-loose-guy, but totally worth learning from his stories and introspection. The book is far more than a live life to the fullest, seek happiness and follow your heart kind of reading. It goes chapter after chapter collecting a list of life commandments that let you not only have a sense of how Branson is, but also how his decision making process is like and how he weights things in business (risk). In fact, I want to know more about the Branson character and probably will read another of his books. Good buy.
Side note: I haven't read any other Branson's books but to me this one feels very personal and sincere. No ghost writer here I guess.
I really enjoyed reading this book and will certainly read it again at least once. I picked this up at a time of change in my own life and found almost everything to be relevant and mostly what I needed to hear, without frills or complicated explanations. Clear and precise, it is a good guide for living a full and rewarding life, all the while doing, or at least trying, the right thing by all.
Great read. Strongly recommend it.
It's an inspiring book, makes you think about things you wanna do although some of the things this guy did are disgraceful but they are not related in this book.

The book gives a view of how Richard Brsnson approaches thing but that was about it really. He comes across a a guy trying to do some good in the world which is pretty much how I always saw him
This small book offers exactly what it says it does and it is an enjoyable read. However, this is little more than a very concise version of the autobiography. Whilst it gets to the point quicker and still retains the easy to read and often comical words of Richard Branson, it lacks the depth that was found in the larger autobiography.
For those looking to read about Richard Branson then I would suggest shelling out a few extra pounds and buying his autobiography. All of these lessons are in there but you will just have to dig a little deeper to get them. Thankfully however, because his story is so interesting, that task certainly isn't a chore.
The first came with a bent cover, the second when you opened the book and read through it the spine came away from the book, presumably because the glue at the spine was of poor quality or old. Add a few pennies to the cost and put in a bit more glue in the spine, it won't break the bank for the reader.
I know it's cheap, but I still would like the book to stay joined to the cover when I am reading it for the first time!
This book cherry picks turning points in Branson's life and the lessons learned. These stories are all key moments effectively lifted from the autobiography but without the, "...and this is what I learned from it".
So, a good short cut if you haven't read Losing My Virginity but, if you have, the lessons are already there.. but without any prompting.
The book itself is a very short, quick, read.
The book doesn't take long to read (took me about two hours) but for the price of it, and the invaluable information contained within, you really can't argue.
