Branson

Creator: Tom Bower | 2009-04-01

Here Is The Full Story Of Branson: His Businesses, His Friendships, His Ambition, His Law-Breaking, His Drug-Taking, His Bullying. Tom Bower'S Biography Reveals Branson To Be A Single-Minded Profiteer Who, Occasionally Generous To Others.

Publisher: HarperCollins

About this book
No tycoon is more popular, few claim to be richer, and none has masterminded a more recognizable brand than Richard Branson. What is behind the success of the buccaneering balloonist, the tabloids’ favorite celebrity nude, the "grinning jumper," and the scourge of corporate goliaths? Helped by eyewitness accounts of more than 250 people with direct experience with Branson, Tom Bower has uncovered a different tale than the one so eagerly promoted by Virgin’s publicists. Here is the full story of Branson—his businesses, his friendships, his ambition, his law-breaking, his drug-taking, his bullying. From the cockpit of a balloon in the clouds to the center of Branson’s operations in his Holland Park home, this book is an intimate scrutiny of exactly how Richard Branson created himself and sold himself. Tom Bower’s biography reveals Branson to be a single-minded profiteer who, while occasionally generous to others, has a fixed purpose to enhance his family’s wealth in secret off-shore trust funds. Instead of a glittering saint, Branson emerges as a devious actor, proud of swiping for his own profit the good ideas of others. From his quest to acquire the license for the National Lottery to his plans to launch space tourism with Virgin Galactic, this fully updated edition follows Branson’s enterprises and investments up to his failed bid for Northern Rock.

    Don't waste your time, read "Losing My Virginity" instead.

    0 2/5 Benny Blanco "Ben" (New York, NY USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Paperback) I started with Branson's first book, "Losing My Virginity", and was absolutely hooked. That book is compelling, insightful, exciting, inspirational, and well-written. "Screw it, Let's Do It" on the other hand, is none of those things, and feels like a cheap re-hashing of "Losing My Virginity", but without any of the real substance. The writing is poor (leading me to wonder if Branson had a lot of help in writing "Losing My Virginity") and he rushes through anecdotes that he explains in detail in "Losing My Virginity". The whole book feels very cursory and surface-deep, and doesn't do justice to Branson's incredible persona. Don't waste your time, get "Losing My Virginity" instead. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 25, 2006

    Sir Richard's Wonderful Philosophy

    Richard Branson made his fortune because he's a shrewd business person, and also because he's been lucky at times. He's successful, however, because of his personality and attitude -- his personal philosophy -- and that's what this book is about. There is nothing earth shattering in his philosophy, except perhaps that it takes an extraordinary person to truly live up to it.I don't think that Branson was looking to make money on the book, but rather to share some ideas that, for good reason, he truly believes in. He's not one to overcomplicate things, and in this case shorter is better. He keeps it simple because to him it is simple. As other reviewers have noted, it's a small book and it can be read in one sitting. It seems like it was dictated and indeed could benefit from some editing, but perhaps that's what makes the book real and is part of its charm. If you're looking for more then buy his book "Losing My Virginity" which contains some details about his various... 5/5 Steven K. Gold "Serial Entrepreneur & Author ...

    An Excellent Book

    0 5/5 Chan Joon Yee "Dr Chan" (Singapore) - See all my reviews This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Paperback) Definitely one of the more useful motivational books I've read. Sir Richard talks about having fun, being bold, challenging yourself, standing on your own feet, valuing the family and doing good.Without being preachy, Sir Richard pulls out stories from his life to illustrate some of his beliefs, principles and practices. Not having read his other books, I'm quite astounded by some of his life experiences, especially his harrowing escapes from a faulty flying machine and his role in Iraq where he helped secure the release of British hostages.Short, sweet and simple, it's an excellent read. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 11, 2006

    A look into the life of the worlds most famous and successful entrepreneur

    0 5/5 michael naylor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Richard Branson: The Life and Business Lessons of Richard Branson (Kindle Edition) Richard Branson's life is like the ultimate "Rags to Riches" story although he didn't grow up in poverty he certainly did not come from a rich family. Now he is one of the most successful businessmen in history, he has dabbled in nearly every market that exists and even some that didn't until he came along. The Virgin brand is huge and known by nearly everyone in one form or another. A very interesting look into the life of the ultimate entrepreneur who pretty much everyone can learn something from. This is definitely a must read. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 5, 2015

    An inspiring work about an amazing man that is sure to motivate any aspiring entreprenuer

    One of the coolest business icons of his generation, I thought this book on Richard Branson would be a great addition to my library. I’m a business owner myself and I thought this book would be a perfect tool for inspiring me forward as I progressed through my own business ups and downs. I’m pleased to say that I was entirely correct. The story of Mr. Branson and his wildly charismatic approach to business was entirely engaging. From his start with The Student to the fleshing out of Virgin, I was taken aback by his unabashed forward motion, even in the face of failure. Mr. Branson has become somewhat of a model for me after reading this outstanding material. He is an outside-of-the-box thinker with a drive that few could ever reach the heights of: A perfect role-model for the aspiring entrepreneur.This book shows everything from Mr. Branson’s start and rise, to his blaring business mistakes and ultimate successes. I loved the part on Handling... 5/5 E.A. Gray - See all my reviews, March 6, 2015

    An Excellent Travel Guide for Branson Missouri!!

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Branson, Missouri: Travel Guide to Fun City, U.S.A. for a Vacation or a Lifetime (Paperback) As someone who loves taking road trips throughout the U.S. I am always on the look-out for exceptional travel information; and the Vokacs' travel guides have quickly become my top "go-to" choice for travel books. Their book on Branson Missouri did not dissapoint!! Branson Missouri, Fun City, U.S.A. is a compact, throw-it-in-your-purse guide filled with every kind of pertinent information you would need when traveling to that city. It not only includes the Vokac trademark description, history, and weather chart, but also lists all the great attractions, restaurants, and lodgings available to travelers. It is clearly and succinctly laid out for easy use and reading. In a world where the internet is not always available when traveling on the road, I think this is a wonderful resource that I will use again and again. I highly recommend it!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 8, 2014

    Get this book if you are going to Branson, Missouri.

    0 5/5 Andrew - See all my reviews This review is from: Branson, Missouri: Travel Guide to Fun City, U.S.A. for a Vacation or a Lifetime (Paperback) Great concise guide with every detail you an imagine about "Fun City, USA." Listings for attractions, dining, lodging are brief but give enough details to let you know what to expect, nice to have a price range for each. The book is very thorough yet small enough to slip in your bag with very little weight/volume. Other travel books by the authors are excellent, too; check them out to see if they include any of your upcoming travels. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 17, 2014

    Branson Ultrasonics

    Branson 200 - works perfectly - suitable power for jewelry

    I bought this model for my hunny so she can clean her jewelry to the level that a jeweler does. Her rings and other jewelry come out looking, literally, sparkling brand new after just 5-10 minutes in this cleaner. I have used many brands of ultrasonic cleaners at work for over 30 years and have found the Branson brand to be reliable and robust, which is why I sought out this one. It is powerful enough to get the toughest dirt out of all the 'nooks and crannies'. Use a gentle surfactant for best results - liquid dish soap works well. Be sure to fill the tank up with water to the fill-line on the tank first, then add a dash of liquid soap or other jewelry cleaner - this prevents sudsing that could fool you about where the level is. It is important to keep the tank filled to the appropriate level for longevity of the ultrasonic transducer. This unit's transducer is on the left side of the tank, so the action is strongest on the left, weakest on the right - obviously,... 5/5 mjklaser (Brookline, NH) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    So sparkling, you'll need sunglasses!

    0 5/5 DJ - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Branson Model B200 Ultrasonic Cleaner, 120V (Misc.) A good ultrasonic cleaner is a diamond, and a girl's, best friend. In 60-90 seconds your rings, necklaces, earrings, will look like NEW. Perfectly clear and sparkling. This was the first thing I suggested for my daughter-in-law when my son put an engagement ring on her finger. And I love her to bits. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 1, 2013
