Narrative of the Branson stories

Well laid out examples of why you should start a company, or pursue your dreams, in a Q&A format. Very good for people needing a push, and a fun read of some of his life’s work/achievements.

Don't listen whilst driving

What disappointed you about Like a Virgin?

Narrator had a very monotone voice -didn't keep me engaged

How could the performance have been better?

I thought it was going to be narrated by Richard Branson -hopefully he might have made it a little more interesting

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Don't know if it was just the narrator but it definitely didn't live up to expectations

Any additional comments?

This has put me off reading/listening to any other books by Branson

Good content, not particularly animated reading

Interesting stories and articles but not overly engaging reading. Not read by Branson as the description suggests.

Ok but nothing new

If you have read/listened to the other Branson books then there won't be much new in here for you.

Shame it isn't Richard Branson narrating it

The book is very good but sadly the narrator is about as far removed from the sound of Richard Branson as you could imagine - he sounds like a sort of slowed down and deflated Clive James - who thought an Australian accent would be a good idea? If you can get over the sound of the narrator the content is good and you can try and imagine it in your mind as the great man himself would.

bland...

From the naration through to the content... its just bland. it's all a bit self promoting and old school. Sorry Richard, you seem like a nice guy... but your book just doesn't feel real.

Won’t be raving about it

Found it a generally positive and uplifting read but it is repetitive due to the style of the book - answering questions from around the world - the same examples keep cropping up
