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.

    Just Great

    0 5/5 Krasimir Karamfilov (Santa Monica, CA, USA) - See all my reviews, October 26, 2007

    Great story, but somehow fell short of expectations

    If you are familiar with Richard Branson's story, you may know how one of his teachers famously said that he would either "be in jail or be a millionaire" by the age of 25. It has taken me a while to be able to articulate my thoughts towards this, but having recently read the rather excellent by Nassim Talem I think I can now put my finger on it. If you read this book you will learn a few things about how to treat employees well, how to build a consistent brand that retains its essence across wildly divergent industries, and how to live an exciting life. It just didn't live up to the really high expectations friends set for me.Branson is undoubtedly a talented entrepreneur, and one can't help but admire how he has dedicated the latter part of his life to... 3/5 Yoni Levitan (Canada) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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

It is a quality piece that justifies the price point. The colors in the photo are accurate. The only thing I will add is that there is a leather reinforcement behind the needlepoint (not visible in the photos) that makes the piece even more durable. If you like the look, buy with confidence. Crabby! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 12, 2014
