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.

One may actually have some reservations about reading about a not exactly well-known business magnate (I am talking about India, of course).

    Some Teaching Points but lacking depth....

    I have to agree with several other readers. Sir Branson articulates himself to be a born entrepreneur, risk-taker (sometimes calculated, other times not), iconoclastic and, perhaps subtlely, family-centered.Unfortunately, his vivid descriptions of his variegated love life and only tangential discussion of his personal life philosophy and philanthropic work, leaves one saying "He's an exciting, flamboyant character; but not someone who will be remembered in the manner of a Carnegie or Rockefeller".Whenever I read and review biographies, I try to encapsulate key takeaways--relevant teaching points--for future benefit. I present them below in the hope that they might be beneficial to someone:-A tight knit social circle of family and friends is critical; the wealthier and more successful one becomes, the tighter and more important this circle should be-JVs (Joint Ventures) can be a valuable way of expeditiously creating new business... 3/5 Shola Abidoye (Stockholm, Sweden & East Coast, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Losing My Virginity: How I've Survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way (Paperback) I have to agree with several other readers.

    Very Rich and Intense, still it Reads like a Breeze

    The book was, to my delight, a very interesting read. "Losing My Virginty" reads like a novel and I would say that it was as interesting as both "Memoirs or a Geisha" and the "Harry Potter" series. Yet the book was full of lessons in a variety of business fields; entrepreneurship and risk-taking being at the forefront of those fields. In its value as a business book, I would compare it to "Lessons from the Top" and "The Millionnaire Next Door", both of which were a much less gripping read. However, "Losing my Virginity" is different from those two books in that it is primarily about "World Class Entrepreneurship".Branson takes the reader on a trip back to the 60's and 70's when Virgin took off and gradually leads you into the "jetstream" of his turbulant life. You will enjoy the ride.This is definitely a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and earnestly recommend to anyone, not... 5/5 0, May 1, 2000

    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

    Easy to read

    Easy to read, funny and inspiring.Richard Branson provides us his views on what makes his company i.e. Virgin Group different and a success.

    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
