    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.

    What about Adrian Mulraney’s performance did you like?

    I like that they used someone with a British accent that could be easily compared to Branson's (at least to an American listener). He also captured Branson's spirit.

  • Revolutionary Road

    From the moment of its publication in 1961, Revolutionary Road was hailed as a masterpiece of realistic fiction and as the most evocative portrayal of the opulent desolation of the American suburbs. It's the story of Frank and April Wheeler, a bright, beautiful, and talented couple who have lived on the assumption that greatness is only just around the corner.

    What would have made Revolutionary Road better?

    I hate saying this, because we are all supposed to be impressed by Yates, but the only way to get through the annoying yelling and whining in this story, is to make it into a movie with Leo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet. It's like listening to hours worth of your neighbors fighting. If you don't have enough stress in your life, then listen to this book. The narrators voice was also soooo boring... so when you are not listening to the bickering, you are just bored to death with the in between story. I just couldn't get through it... I decide that it was better to lose the money spent then to have to listen to one more minute.
