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. He also looks to the future and shares his plans for taking his business and his ideas to the next level.

    Story
    "Branson has good values"

    I liked the book overall. some very visual descriptions of the crazy thing Branson has done in his life and his philosophies are Nobel and wise. I gave it 4 stars because a lot of the book was just antidotes and the biggest chapter was his thoughts on climate change, which were nobel, but not really a topic I wanted to listen to for an hour.

    Story
    "Boring self indulgence"

    A man as Richard Branson must have some interesting things to say I thought. Boy, was I wrong. If you want to hear an endless list of all the "great" things this man has done and hear him blow his own trumpet, the whole time, then by all means read this book.

    I was expecting something more of a book full of lesson's learned, enriched by many of the successes or failures this man must have had. There are some interesting parts of course, but these are very rare.

    Story
    "more like an autobiography"
    Would you listen to Screw It, Let's Do It again? Why?

    Interesting story of his life. He seems like a good person. If you're looking for a book on finance/entrepreneurship, it's only sprinkled in rare bits here and there. This is more of his motivational life story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Screw It, Let's Do It?

    Moral of the story: if you want something bad enough, then make it happen!


    Which character – as performed by Adrian Mulraney – was your favorite?

    Narrator is great. Tells the story well and has a soothing voice.


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

    Too long for one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    A lot about hot air balloon rides and even more about global warming and virgin airways

    "Seemed a bit all over the place, but very good"

    Really good book. Tough to find a hard premise to the whole thing, a bit scattered but well done. I enjoyed learning about Branson's many incredible past stories of his amazing life. Lots of great principles taught.

    "Excellent piece of work"

    This is an excellent piece of factual and motivational story telling. A little repetitive in a few chapters but this mans life is a true work of innovation

    It also reveals the power of drive, the essence of family and friends and most importantly the gifts and talents bestowed upon him by God even though he never acknowledges the giver of life. A truly triumphant spirit. A great read and phenomenal work

    Story
    "Brilliant content, uninspiring narrator"

    Branson's wisdom is inspiring, but I can't help but think the publishers did themselves no favours choosing this narrator. Dull voice which left me uninspired rather than invigorated. Branson to narrate please!
