    Richard Branson is an iconic businessman. In Screw It, Let’s Do It, he shares the secrets of his success and the invaluable lessons he has learned over the course of his remarkable career. As the world struggles with the twin problems of global recession and climate change, Richard explains why it is up to big companies like Virgin to lead the way in finding a more holistic and environmentally friendly approach to business.

    Overall

    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.
