    "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.

    Story
    "Very good"

    I found myself wanting more though. More scope, it seems small parts have been focussed on and other parts fast forwarded. The final chapter read a bit like an essay conclusion.

    Story
    "What an incredible life!"

    A humbling experience listening to such an extraordinary life. The honesty of Richard Branson I suspect is his most attractive quality. Branson tells many stories that are unflattering but which strike a cord with so many. There is also the experiences he has had. Close brushes with death, the death of a child, being arrested (rightfully) and being threatened by police (wrongfully). The list goes on. Such a full life for somebody to live and incredibly inspiring for those just starting too.

    "Never tire of listening to and also reading this.."

    Excellently written
    Brilliantly read
    Inspirational story
    The way Richard expresses his will to succeed but stay grounded to the things that are important has given me inspiration to take on board some of the advice that lies within the pages of the book. Like a self help book with a pulse and a soul.

    "Riveting story, honestly told"

    I'm not a huge fan of business biographies but I found this really enjoyable. The story comes across as very genuine & really lays out virgin's fun approach to business. Anyone running their own business would enjoy the trials & tribulations described here.

    Story
    "Inspiring, worth every minute"
    What made the experience of listening to Losing My Virginity the most enjoyable?

    Living in a society in which effort is not taken into consideration and successful people are envied and massively criticized, learning that the "allmighty" Richard Branson was about to go bust on a regular basis has been really inspiring. You get what you give, and Branson definitely deserves what he has, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, not only to crazy entepreneurs of his kind.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sir Richard, of course.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The outcome of the battle with BA.


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

    Laughed a few times.

    Story
    "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
