If you're expecting insight, research or even food for thought - then step away from that purchase button now. I didn't look closely before buying,nor did I read the previous review for this "product". For my couple of quid, I purchased something that had a picture of Richard Branson on the front (trying to suggest that this is either written by him, or is an official product in some way.) What it actually is, is little more than a partial rewrite of the Branson Wikipedia entry. When a previous reviewer described this as being "more like a pamphlet", they were being overly generous. The Wikipedia entry takes longer to read. If you're still interested in buying then let me confirm - the 31 kindle pages specified on the product page is a genuine number. After reading this (which took all of twenty minutes) I honestly feel that it was a total waste of my money.

If you're seriously interested in learning more about the man, his life, and his history in business - then I'd suggest reading his autobiography here Losing My Virginity: The Autobiography or here Business Stripped Bare: Adventures of a Global Entrepeneur.

If, after reading this review you're still considering buying this - well, caveat emptor. Read the Wikipedia page. Then carry on and buy this if you like. And stand by for a strange sense of deja-vu.

Rubish
It is a leaflet not a book. So small it even has no page numbers. Waste of time and money

Very few pages of what seems to be cut & paste info from the internet. Don't waste your money on it.

Rip off! Anyone who says this is a good book is probably paid by the seller, it is absolutely awful. Clearly a copy and paste from the wikipedia entry.

It feels like this was written in one draft by someone who doesn't speak English as a first language.

It has poor grammar and some sentences make no sense. Sentences frequently switch from the present tense to the past tense and vice versa. The book is very short. Complete rubbish.

This read more like a pamphlet than a book. I was very disappointed in it as it could have been so much more. It just glossed over his details and was not a satisfying read at all.
