Skip this one, check out ‘losing my virginity’ instead.

Its not a bad book by any means, but ‘Losing my Virginity’ is very similar and done a bit better in my mind. A lot of stories are repeated in this book, but with much less detail compared to the other book. Go get ‘Losing my Virginity’ and skip this one.

Turns into 4 hour global warming campaign

Any additional comments?

Book started out alright but plunged quicker then one of Branson's hot air balloons. To break this book down:
Try hard and find a way to make it happen
An hour of hot air balloon stories
4 hours about global warming and his airline
All sprinkled with name dropping of politicians

If you are looking to learn something or inspiration, avoid this book.

Disappointed

This is just a book about the risks he has taken. It started off slow, and stayed that speed. I enjoyed hearing about his plans with environmental protection, but he lost me when he started talking about girlfriends having abortions. I won't be finishing this book.

Screw it, I just wasted my money!

He reminds me of Bobby Knight...he was popular..he won games...but he was full of crap. Knight's crap was his anger and abuse...Branson's is self love and self adulation....you can learn from both about strategy but you also have to deal with the crap. I will save you money so u don't have to listen to him tell you how awesome he is:

- Do what you love
- Believe that you can succeed
- Never give up
- Don't listen to the naysayers.

He learned all that from his Mum...he is not some brilliant innovator but followed a brilliant strategy ..he just knew what the people wanted and went into action. His nature was formed by his Mum...he emulated her....he got rich because he did the same thing she did but in profit making companies....that's it.

With some bits of strategy, he mostly talked about his social concerns; basically, to put it in an analogy - he said how he's wonderful because he gave a poor man a fish and announced to the world that it was HE that gave the poor man a fish...but he solved nothing!!!! The poor man was just as hungry the next day! Teach him how to fish and THEN teach him how to sell at the fish market and he'll be fed everyday as well as his family and neighbors.


Note to Branson, Bono and rich folks who love glorifying themselves about how they help others, but really don't help anyone - you want to lessen hunger, lessen disease, lessen wars?....then follow me....I know how to do it.....BUILD UP THE FREE MARKET SYSTEM IN EACH OF THEIR MAJOR CITIES!!!!!!

Save your money and buy a book about Steve Jobs. You will get great ideas and the motivation you're looking for without the continuous nauseating self praise.

Screw It!

Wow, Richard Branson has always been a powerful figure in the world, but never has he been so inspiring. I've lived a life working to gain and grow my own future by struggling every day to change my family tree. I don't enjoy life and I don't think globally. It's time to change that and this book has done that for me. I am excited to look for more opportunities for growth and have him to thank for that.

A very good book!

I liked it, and love Richard.
Only objection is that it features too many things already written is his autobiography.
