Screw Business As Usual

Creator: Richard Branson | Business & Economics - 2011-12-08

By that I mean that doing good is good for business. "Doing the right thing can be profitable. I will show how this works step by step in the following pages. It's the core message of this book.

Publisher: Penguin

About this book
RICHARD BRANSON, one of the world's most famous and admired business leaders, argues that it's time to turn capitalism upside down-to shift our values from an exclusive focus on profit to also caring for people, communities and the planetAs he writes: "It's a vibrant and definite sea change from the way business was always done, when financial profit was a driving force. Today, people aren't afraid to say, Screw business as usual!-and show they mean it."It's amazing how I keep coming across the same message, from bustling global cities to the townships of South Africa to small villages in India to G8 climate conferences."It's no coincidence that so many people are talking about the same thing. There's a real buzz in the air. Change is happening."People often associate me with challenges, with trying to break records while sailing the Atlantic or flying in a jet stream in a balloon or going into space with Virgin Galactic. But this book isn't just about fun and adventure and exceeding one's wildest dreams. It's a different kind of business book. It's about revolution. My message is a simple one: business as usual isn't working. In fact, business as usual is wrecking this planet. Resources are being used up; the air, the sea, the land are all heavily polluted. The poor are getting poorer. Many are dying of starvation or because they can't afford a dollar a day for lifesaving medicine."But my message is not all doom and gloom. I will describe how I think business can help fix things and create a more prosperous world for everyone. I happen to believe in business because I believe that business is a force for good. By that I mean that doing good is good for business."Doing the right thing can be profitable. I will show how this works step by step in the following pages. It's the core message of this book. I often say, 'Have fun and the money will come.' I still believe that, but now I am saying, 'Do good, have fun and the money will come.'"

The Virgin Way, Everything I Know About Leadership

Creator: Richard Branson | Business & Economics - 2014-09-09

This is a book on leadership from someone who has never read a book on leadership in his life.

Publisher: Penguin

About this book
This is a book on leadership from someone who has never read a book on leadership in his life.While building the Virgin Group over the course of forty years, Richard Branson has never shied away from tackling seemingly outlandish challenges that others (including his own colleagues on many occasions) considered sheer lunacy. He has taken on giants like British Airways and won, and monsters like Coca-Cola and lost.Now Branson gives an inside look at his strikingly different, swashbuckling style of leadership. Learn how fun, family, passion, and the dying art of listening are key components to what his extended family of employees around the world has always dubbed (with a wink) "the Virgin Way."This unique perspective comes from a man who dropped out of school at sixteen, suffers from dyslexia, and has never worked for anyone but himself. He may be famous for thinking outside the box—an expression he despises—but Branson asserts that "you’ll never have to think outside the box if you refuse to let anyone build one around you."From the Trade Paperback edition.

    A solid read even in a crowded field

    I have always admired Richard Branson from a distance and what I read/heard about in the news. He's always risky yet calculating enough to be successful. Now, with this book, I can see him and his beliefs from a much more personal perspective including stories of his family and childhood. Note, though, that you won't get into in depth "how-to's" and this is more general leadership philosophy. If you're ok with that, then you won't be disappointed by this book even in the already-crowded business leadership book field. This is posted only a week or two after the Virgin Galactic test flight crash that took the life of one test pilot, and Richard's (don't call him anything more formal!) response has certainly fit with his character you read about here. While his editor let slip some misspellings like "colour" and "favourite" instead of "color" and "favorite", the rest of the book is top notch! (and yes, that was said tongue-in-cheek for our... 5/5 Shawn C. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    A success story through hard work and being persistent...

    5/5 Alan B. Scholl (Antigua, West Indies) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (Kindle Edition) I have always admired Branson's Virgin Way of getting things done, and his participation at all levels. I recall a few years back him paddling a makeshift boat during Antigua's Sailing Week, falling into the water and walking out soaking wet. But that is him, getting his hands dirty in ensuring his businesses thrive. Excellent book describing how he got to where he is.

    Too Light - Not Well Written

    3/5 David J. Bradley, MBA (Rhode Island, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Paperback) I'm a huge fan of Richard Branson. Very interesting character, which comes out in this book. However, I imagine any of his other books would be a better choice (I haven't read others for comparison).This book is very light and not well written. It honestly felt awkward to read the multi-billionaires poorly written text. Something doesn't seem right there...I do like that the book is a quick read. You can casually read it within a few days. The stories are interesting. But there's no big substance. If you want a very quick read -- go for it. If you really want to learn something, again, I'd imagine another Branson book is a better fit.

    Motivating.

    5/5 prettyflyers11 (All around the world) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Kindle Edition) I chose to read this book because I've always been intrigued by Richard Branson, some of his thought processes and business management skills. He is such a risk taker, but it very much so stems back to his childhood and upbringing. His family was quite supportive in his adventures and boy does he have many to note! I think what motivates me the most is that to know someone out there pretty much risked his life on more than one occasion to follow his heart or to give things a try. He maintained such a positive mindset throughout his ventures and didn't let anything stop him like doubt, fear, people, etc.This is definitely a quick read under 2 hours of reading and I totally recommend it to young people who are on a journey of discovery desiring to launch into the deep and for adults who have that dream in their heart (whether to run a company or to take a trip around the world) to press forth and live your life out loud and to the fullest.

    Fantastic piece & Great Information Imparted

    5/5 anonymuous - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons in Life and Business (Kindle Edition) Great information and insight on discovering new ventures and changing directions on status quo mind sets. Gave us some good inspiration to follow ideas and don't be hesitant or bashful to step out of the norm to try new ideas and concepts. Also learning that it is ok to fail and not a bad thing, more over an education and growth opportunity. The wealth of knowledge that you learn from stepping out and trying new things with out the worry of failing and getting consumed in the failure aspect but rather using this as an educational & knowledge empowerment experience is worth every penny or time lost, which in turn is priceless. Knowledge & experience is the most powerful component in the business entity and being afraid to try new things only hampers your growth and opportunities. Great information espoused and look forward to reading another such editorial to help me boldly step out and try new ideas & explore new concepts for my business! Thank you Sir Richard Branson!!!

    Overall, this book suffers from common minor editing and language use but the journey to master the body and mind is invigorating. I thoroughly enjoyed it.My first thought is it is a shame that the tone is so aloof. A big part of the human journey is spiritual, and the distance between the author and his own development feels increasingly dissonant. Although a lot of this is style, using so many layers of irony feels like some of the deep seated implications of life and love are narratively getting thrown away. Or maybe that was intentional, in which case bravo, young master.It also might be that he's only recently started seeking and ascribing more holistic meaning to past events in his life. It's so easy to build those ivory towers of logic but life isn't always cut and dry. It's messy, bloody, confusing, and has to be completely reframed when we encounter the unexpected--a fact that he alludes to in the book.

    Great perspective from a top-tier internet philosopher

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Into The Hills, Young Master (Paperback) Branson drags us through the evolving perspective of possibly the internet everyman, if not a more intense version. It's funny at times and stern at others, but it's a unique perspective of having an opinion on the internet which now really umbrellas many a lifestyle.
