Product Description

Book Description

Sir Richard Branson shares the secrets of his success in this repackaged edition of his bestselling business book.

From the Inside Flap

Throughout my life I have always strived for success - as a businessman, in my adventures, as an author and a proud father and husband. I want to share the many truths I've learned along the road to success which have helped me to be the best I can. They include: Have faith in yourself; Believe that anything can be done; Live life to the full; Never give up. Learn these and other simple truths, and I hope you will be inspired to get the most out of your life and to achieve your goals. People will always try to talk you out of ideas and say: 'It can't be done,' but if you have faith in yourself you'll find you can achieve almost anything. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Paperback.

It's quick, it's easy, it's not preachy, it's positive. It's packed full of good advice and examples from Richard Branson's own life. He calls them his "lessons in life". He also says, "A journey of a thousand miles starts with that first step" -- and he's right. Reading this book, by the friendly genius that the media has dubbed a maverick in paradise, could be that first step to a positive and fulfilling life and perhaps a wealthy one. He says he can't tell people how to get rich fast and he doesn't have any secrets to success; all he has is "truths" and examples that worked for him and could work for you. Making money isn't his first goal -- having fun and doing good are. But he says if you have fun, then the money will come -- and explains why he says it. Every chapter is filled with his philosophy, spelled out in a simple and direct way. Chapter headings like "Just Do It!" "Be Bold"; "Have Fun!"; "Challenge Yourself"; "Value Family and Friends" are useful guides for everyone to follow. It's a great little book to read at odd moments. I read it all the way through in less than an hour, and instantly felt driven and motivated to get cracking with that project I've been putting off. Everyone should read this book and every teenager should be given a copy. It could be resonsible for turning things around and producing a society of motivated go-getters.

This is a good book with quick wisdom, but beware! it's most of all a summary of Branson's autobiography "Losing My virginity". It is still great, Branson talks in a very down to earth manner, but for more details and wisdom on how he succeeded in business I would definitely recommend by miles his Autobiography.
So, if you are intrigued about Branson's life this is a very good quick summary, which then if you like it, you should definitely read his autobiography.
All in all an inspiring read.

By A. Watson VINE VOICE on 18 Oct. 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is what it says it is - a light, quick inspirational read. Don't buy it expecting to get an autobiography - that's 'Losing My Virginity'.

Some reviewers have complained that this covers a lot of the same ground as the autobiography but I don't think it's meant to be a sequel. It's a short series of anecdotal life lessons suitable for teenagers as well as adults. If you want something to give to an aspiring young entrepreneur, or something light and stirring to read in an evening, this is the book.

By Mr. G. Bridgeman TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Aug. 2006
Format: Paperback
I liked this book. Easy to read, easy to follow and unlike some other high powered businessmen, Richard Branson doesn't seem to have a big ego.

I like Richard Branson's honest and straight-forward approach to writing. No holds barred, straight-to-the-point prose. I enjoyed the book on two accounts. I am a businessman and I want to learn how Sir Richard has succeeded, but secondly, since I have read his other books, I enjoy his style and his books are a great read in any case.

So if you need to pick up a few business pointers - on how to succeed or fail even, or you just want an easy quick read, then I recommend this book.

I would have given the book 5 but I tend to think it is a bit pricy for a short book.

Format: Kindle Edition
The trouble with this book is that it is written by a baby boomer who shares his generation's naive, rose tinted view of the world that comes from living in an era of unprecedented prosperity and the self help he offers is quite dated as a result.

He begins with some good pop psychology that has some merit although it has become terribly cliched these days. "I don't think that little word 'can't should stop you." It goes down hill from there. "If you don't have the right experience to reach your goal, look for another way in." And then "if you want to fly, get down to the airfield at the age of sixteen and make the tea."

I have absolutely no doubt that when Richard Branson started out in the 1960s, these ideas had some merit. However, even from this short sentence there are all kinds of problems with the advice he is giving. The most obvious is that no one hires anyone to make tea or act as a general dogs body anymore! The second is that if you quit school at 16 to work at an airfield when you have the option to go and get some science A-Levels and a relevant degree, then you're really making life a lot harder than it needs to be! A more sensible line might have been "then go and join the Air Force at the first opportunity."

But this is the problem with Branson's generation and it's why their advice is so useless today. They're blaggers who don't realise that employers are catching up. At one point he talks about his mother schmoozing her way into an airline job she wasn't qualified to do, which was great in the 1940s but not very likely in a world where employers use firms to perform background checks on new employees!

This book would be a useful pocket guide or a gift for someone, however I wouldn't recommend it if you have already read Richard Branson's autobiography. Most of the material is lifted from that and the new stuff is not particularly inspirational.

Having said that, if it is purchased as a gift or as a "dip in" book for intermittent use then it will have value.

As a proper "read" I suspect you would be disappointed. Buy the autobiography instead (5 stars!)
