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.

    0 4/5 Marty Roberts - See all my reviews This review is from: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (Kindle Edition) Loved the last book (Like a Virgin) but I read this in almost one sitting and think it is every bit as good if not better.I love the sheer pragmatism of the advice - like "you never learn anything by listening to yourself speak" so shut up pay attention take notes and ask questions. Stuff everybody thinks they know but very few do. Highly recommended reading. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 11, 2014

    Like a Virgin

    I love this book. I confess that I had the rare privilege of a brief encounter Sir Richard Branson as a prizewinner for a competition I won regarding Leadership Lessons that come from your family on Linkedin. Setting aside any biases that may arise from this, the book contains powerful and straightforward lessons for anyone working in business or trying to do new things.Let's be clear, Richard Branson discusses things such as the importance of listening, learning, keeping people engaged with the business but these are not the hollow platitudes from an HR guru. The ideas are grounded in great stories that illustrate just why these simple things are sometimes hard to do if you don't have your head, heart and soul in the business.But it is not all fluffy either. We gain insights into the money making instinct of Richard, without which he would have still been making records for psychedelic rock bands as an independent retailer. He talks of a friend who considered... 5/5 Mr. P. Cook (GILLINGHAM, KENT United Kingdom) - See all my reviews, September 18, 2014

    Great read from one of the world's great leaders

    0 5/5 William Billeaud - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (Hardcover) This is a relatively quick read from one of the great leaders in global business. His mindset and actions are much different than most Western CEOs, yet they have proven to be highly effective. What would our world look like with more Sir Richards leading business and government? We would be at least 100 years advanced. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 5, 2014

    OUTSTANDING - This Really Screws Business Books As Usual

    This is a must-read for anyone interested in business, entrepreneurship, social issues, the future of capitalism, and the current challenges that face the world today. Despite its playful title, this is a substantive book that advises without preaching, that is idealistic by providing real-world examples, that tells stories about famous people by focusing on their deeds not their fame, that is a highly entertaining read at the same time as dealing with challenging issues.Branson builds a strong case for the business world's potential to address social, economic, political and environmental issues by creating new business models and new ways of doing business. He does this not by some theoretical or pie-in-the sky fluff, but rather by stories of organizations and businesses that have done it. So his narrative is planted firmly in the real world and that is what is so inspiring and concrete - a departure from the usual nonsense that fills so many business, self-help and... 5/5 C.

    I wanted more

    0 3/5 Arfner - See all my reviews This review is from: Screw Business As Usual (Hardcover) First off, I agree wholeheartedly with the premise of the book. I agree that businesses can and should do more with the environment and social issues. This is what drove me to read this book. I was disappointed in how the book was written. I was hoping for a book explaining how to set up a sustainable business, or what companies can do to become more sustainable. Instead, the book is all stories. If you want a feel good book, this is a great one to read. If you are looking for a more serious discussion of corporate social responsibility (CSR), then this is not the book for you. Some of the parts of the book seemed to me like he was bragging about what he has done. I had to put the book down a couple of times because I got so tired of stories, and stories about what he and his company has done. Stories should provide the emotional support to a well thought out and argued book. This book was not well thought out and argued. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 24, 2011

    Should be required reading in every business school!

    I can't put it on the required reading list at business schools but I will make it required reading in my course - more info at [...] - and I have lots of folks from top business schools who take it.Richard Branson has said what sorely needed to be said - that the function of business is to "do good", to solve some social problem and profits are a by-product of doing this well. He says bluntly "The focus on profit being king has caused significant negative, unintended consequences."Amen!Branson is a billionaire and that means he has a Stentorian voice when speaking to MBAs and would be Masters of the Universe. He has also spawned - under the Virgin name - hundreds of wildly profitable enterprises and that means that lots of folks in the private equity and hedge fund world will pay attention to him even if they presently don't agree with him.And his message is one that badly needs to be aired.There is a pernicious doctrine... 5/5 Srikumar S.

    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
