A Must Read

This is a really good listen, not only from the practical `tit bits` and fascinating story of one of our Great business men, but vastly enhanced by the fact that it?s read by the man himself. Unlike his autobiography, Loosing My Virginity, Business Stripped Bare is an excellent listen as the author is able to articulate far more so than any narrator, the feeling and exhilaration behind the stories and history, the amusement and exasperation? A simple must read for all Branson enthusiasts and business managers alike. A definite will listen again too.

An excellent listen

So interesting that I found myself making excuses to find time to hear more and got through it in a couple of days. Interesing insights and so much better that it's read by the man himself, from wherever he preferred.
