    From its creation as a mail-order record company to the literal launch of Virgin Galactic, today Virgin is one of the premier ‘way-of-life’ brands in the world, trusted and enjoyed by many millions of people. In Business Stripped Bare, Sir Richard Branson shares the inside track on his life in business and reveals the incredible truth about his most risky, brilliant and audacious deals.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Jeez, from what I know Richard Branson is a pretty engaging guy but he writes an extremely boring book. There's no humor to lighten things up and the narrator doesn't help any. You get the impression that there are a few places that jokes run flat because the narrator is so bland. Had I known I wouldn't have bought this book. There's a bit you can learn about business, but not enough to warrant listening to this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Branson again?

    Nope.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator is boring.

    In 1508, despite strong advice to the contrary, the powerful Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo Buonarroti to paint the ceiling of the newly restored Sistine Chapel in Rome. During the four extraordinary years that Michelangelo spent laboring over the ceiling, power politics and personal rivalries swirled around him. He battled ill health, financial and family difficulties, inadequate knowledge of the art of fresco, and the Pope's impatience - a history that is more compelling than most novels.

    What made the experience of listening to Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling the most enjoyable?

    I've listened to this book 3 times. It's extremely well written, engaging, and the narrator is a little over the top but very listenable. It's a good read.
