Overview

It’s business school, the Branson way.

Whether you’re interested in starting your own business, improving your leadership skills, or simply looking for inspiration from one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time, Richard Branson has the answers.

Like a Virgin brings together some of his best advice, distilling the experiences and insights that have made him one of the world’s most recognized and respected business leaders.

In his trademark thoughtful and encouraging voice, Branson shares his knowledge like a close friend. He’ll teach you how to be more innovative, how to lead by listening, how to enjoy your work, and much more.

In hindsight, Branson is thankful he never went to business school. Had he conformed to the conventional dos and don’ts of starting a business, would there have been a Virgin Records? A Virgin Atlantic? So many of Branson’s achievements are due to his unyielding deter­mination to break the rules and rewrite them himself. Here’s how he does it.

This was the first Branson book I've read, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. However, there really is nothing too earth shattering in regards to business that will make you feel like you've come away with something new. Yet, the book does contain a lot of encouragement to keep you motivated in this tough economy. More, just reading another businessman's experiences always seems to spark my own random ideas. Since the book really is just a collection of answers to emailed questions, I feel the book is a little light on material-- hence, the three star rating. But as an airplane read, definitely a four star.
