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.
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.
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.
Moral of the story: if you want something bad enough, then make it happen!
Narrator is great. Tells the story well and has a soothing voice.
Too long for one sitting
A lot about hot air balloon rides and even more about global warming and virgin airways
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.
On my quest to the better things in life! Health, Wealth, Love, & Happiness!
Great on the go book full of life lessons and business adventures! Highly recommend to the aspiring entrepreneur and anyone who want the most out of life
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
"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!
