    "The best 5hrs listening ever!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Losing My Virginity the most enjoyable?

    Just simply the best 5 hrs of listening I've ever done, couldn't stop listening from start to finish. What a great listen, esp listening to Branson himself explain was just the cherry on the top


    What other book might you compare Losing My Virginity to, and why?

    I'm a virgin myself to audible so at this time nothing I can compare to but I have just downloaded warren buffet and so far not as capturing as Branson's.


    What does Richard Branson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His voice tells the story and his passion.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and laughed it was very good


    Any additional comments?

    Mega mega mega must listen and looking forward to more listening from Branson and more audible story's

    "An inspiring story"
    Would you listen to Losing My Virginity again? Why?

    Although Richard isn't the most natural narrator, it is lovely to hear his story in his own voice. I really enjoyed the story of his life and work, very inspiring and recommended, even if you aren't interested in business.

    "Probably the most expensive audiobook"

    Big thanks to Richard for narrating his own book - probably not the best performer but I prefer hearing auto-biographies from the author. Very interesting insights into early Virgin, which can't help but make you admire what he has achieved.

    Story
    "Great story, narrated firsthand with emotion"

    I generally favour books narrated by the author as they are not simply performing a job by narrating but instead putting more time and effort into their personal brand. In autobiographies I more often than not opt for the audiobook as you get a greater sense of their stories and Losing My Virginity is a great example of this.

    Richard Branson is charismatic and fun and this is reflected in both his writing and his telling of his life experiences from getting in trouble at school, to challenging the status quo and going head-to-head with British Airways. It’s a gripping story filled with various adventures, ups and downs and his passion for what he does and believes in comes out really well. Having read a couple of his books, this is one where I recommended the audible version over the hard copy. Simply great!

    "Good insight"

    I downloaded this book because i have always been interested in the Richard Branson story and i have to say i was not disappointed in any way. It gave a very good insight into beginnings, the business etc in a very readable way. I would most certainly recommend this to anyone who may have the slightest interest in the Richard Branson story.

    "An Fascinating Insight"

    In my experience most autobiographies benefit from being narrated by the author, and this is no different. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing him describe his experiences over the years, and the progress of the Virgin group. There is very little about his early life, however, and what he does relate only really serves as an brief introduction for the real story of the rise of Virgin - which is fascinating. Perhaps it was an uneventful childhood; perhaps he simply doesn't remember enough of it or considers it irrelevant, but most other autobiographies I have read or listened to have described at length the childish experiences that shaped the author into the adult we know today. This is a minor criticism, one of two that spring to mind. The other is that he clearly recorded this in many small sections judging by the difference in sound quality from chapter to chapter. This is not surprising given the demands on his time, but in some passages he descends almost into a monotone, and the usual enthusiasm is strangely absent. I assume these passages were recorded late at night, probably at home after a long day. Those minor gripes aside though, I found this book thoroughly enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone.
