Before picking up this book I really didn't know much about Richard Branson beyond his crazy publicity stunts. I definitely didn't know about his political involvement, his charity work, nor the struggles and challenges he has faced at every corner of his business life.

I didn't really learn 14 lessons from the book, and I am sure that the lessons I did learn won't help me make it to the top as a business person, but this book was a lot of fun to read. It's full of wonderful stories of adventure, success and challenges. I laughed out loud at some of the funny things that happened, and I was excited to read about his businesses as they developed.

When you close the book you will feel inspired, motivated and maybe a bit more interested in seeking out more environmental alternatives in your business.

It's a really enjoyable read, but it's not one I will be keeping around for future reference.

HASH(0x9c41f7d4) out of 5 stars Great motivator July 28 2008
By Jeffrey Thomas Skrob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would suggest to read "Losing my virginity" first so you get a better understanding of Branson's life. I did it the other way unfortunately. During his book he will tell various stories about his life that affected his way of thinking. It's a good motivation book for anyone considering his/her own business. The most important lesson (aside other great ones) that I took with me: Do it for fun - not for money! And he is damn right.

I strongly recommend this book even if you do not open your own business.

HASH(0x9c41fbdc) out of 5 stars Enjoyable Mix of Life and Lessons Sept. 26 2012
By David Markov - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an enjoyable light read. While he covers his life and his lessons learned, I enjoyed catching his attitude--one of bringing fun to business. I'm on my second reading of it now--so that says something.

HASH(0x9c41f9e4) out of 5 stars Very Interesting Book! March 22 2009
By Savo Heleta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting and informative book. Richard Branson is not trying to sell anything; he's just explaining how he came to be what he is today.

Branson is completelly right that people must have fun with whatever they do. Otherwise, they will become miserable robots regreting missed opportunities one day.
HASH(0x9c41ffe4) out of 5 stars fun reading June 11 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In a way, like many (all?) successful people, Richard Branson is full of himself. But if you can overlook this you will enjoy reading this book and may get some lessons from it.

HASH(0x9d158024) out of 5 stars Amazing book, bogged down with lame opinions. Jan. 25 2009
By Paul Stanford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great book, a lot of good information and a really interesting read. The only time where I felt like I had to work to get through this book is when he started to discuss his opinions on "Going Green" and all of that nonsense. In my opinion he should have written a book entirely about going green and the green way of life and left it out of this book, which would have been fine without it. Other than that it was a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in business or entrepreneurship.
