    "Amazing book. Amazing Narrator."

    Richard was always my inspiration. I started a business a few months ago and decided to read/listen (finally) his book. I love it.

    Amazing stories from his childhood, first business, becoming a businessman, starting a Virgin group. And what is more important more advices from Richard. How to build, how to scale, how to have fun.

    What is THE most important. Richard reads this book. He smiles when reads about funny moments, he's sad when he read about sad moments (like story about Iraq).

    Short, great read, much value for your entrepreneurs.

    "Great book read by the great man"

    I grew up admiring Richard Branson and reading this makes me understand his vitality and drive. I really enjoyed listening to him read the book in particular as you could tell at points he was getting emotional. Now I just need to find another book just as good!

    "Entertaining, Insightful, and Real"

    I listened to this book from start to finish in an evening. I've never done that before, Branson's book was just so captivating, authentic, and inspiring - I just had to finish it. Likely the best business book I've heard or read.

    "Well, not much surprise."

    It is written nicely, however if you already know the guy and his past you won't find much surprise. On the other hand, if you would like to know how he became who he is. This is the book for you.

    "very inspirational!"

    Couldn't stop listening. As the CEO of a young company myself I am in awe of Richard Brandon and I see him and the virgin group as what I want for my own company!

    "Incredibly honest, simple and inspirational"

    Richard tells his remarkable story in a explicitly honest, heartfelt and courageous way. I found this book to inspire me to be brave in business, to trust your gut and he always plays to the whistle! Highly recommend if you want to do something with your life. This man has done it all and hides nothing. He actually tells you how he lost his virginity, it's that honest!

    Story
    "Overall enjoyable but not engrossing."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Losing My Virginity to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed hearing Richard Branson reading his own story even if he is not the best narrator.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Rather a strange question for a biography.


    What three words best describe the narrator’s voice?

    Familiar. Easy Listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The format of the story meant it was good to pick up and put down as and when.
