Simply brilliant

Firstly you have to accept that RB has an ego and that it is so embedded in his writing that some of the statements may make you cough a little. Once you accept this you are listening to a riveting yarn.

I read this on the beach last year and the the book is full of my 'red written notes'. I felt that the audio book would be a good tool to supplement and enhance the lessons I already took.

It is a must for those like me who are both entrepreneurial and contrarian in business.

Enjoy his work and learn from him. He is very good.

Not great. "Screw it, lets do it" is my preference

A bit disappointing in comparison to "Screw it, lets do it" which was fantastic. Has put me off the Branson books, which is a shame. It may have been the dry delivery of the Narrator, but the overall style of the book seemed to have moved away from previous Branson books.
