Summary

Random House presents the unabridged audiobook edition of Finding My Virginity by Sir Richard Branson, read by Steve West. 
Fifty years ago, Sir Richard Branson started his first business. In his new autobiography, Finding My Virginity, the Virgin founder shares his personal, intimate thoughts on five decades as the world's ultimate entrepreneur. 
In Finding My Virginity, Sir Richard Branson shares the secrets that have seen his family business grow from a student magazine into a global brand, his dreams of private citizens flying to space develop from a childhood fantasy to the brink of reality and his focus shift from battling bigger rivals to changing business for good. Following on from where best-selling Losing My Virginity left off at the dawn of the new millennium, Finding My Virginity takes the listener on a roller-coaster ride with the enigmatic entrepreneur. Learn how Branson created 12 different billion-dollar businesses and hundreds more companies across dozens of sectors, going from a houseboat to his own private island. 
But this audiobook goes far beyond the numbers - it is a journey into the heart and mind of Britain's best loved businessman. Join Sir Richard as he juggles working life with raising his children, Holly and Sam; building a marriage with his wife, Joan; and creating a unique company culture. Discover how he created a new life on Necker Island while continuing to grow the Virgin brand into all corners of the world. Get the real story behind adventures and run-ins with everyone from Bill Gates and Kate Moss to Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. Go behind the scenes as Sir Richard Branson creates the world's first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic, and handles the biggest crisis he has ever faced. Get under the skin of world record attempts on land, sea and air, and see how the original business hippy adapted to becoming a doting 'grand-dude' to his four grandchildren, Eva-Deia, Etta, Artie and Bluey. 
This is the true account of how the Virgin founder reinvented himself and his brand for the 21st century while continuing to push boundaries, break rules and reach for the stars in more ways than one. This is the story of the man behind the beard, the business, the bravado and the brand. Find out how the ultimate entrepreneur did it for the first time - all over again.

A must read! Truly inspirational

Just amazing that one person can achieve so much across so many different areas....and he's still not done yet! Richard Branson should be cloned. Virgin Clones ? ;-)

Rollercoaster ride

This is a fascinating, open and honest account of his personal and business life spanning from the beginning and looking into the future. His laid back approach to life and business is something we should all adopt. So many pearls of wisdom and take homes from this book and I thoroughly recommend. Thanks for sharing RB!

Great book, but feels a bit disconnected

It's a great book and insight to Richard Branson life. However it feels more like a collection of notes, so it feels a bit on the surface, without digging much deeper on any subjects.

Listened to it in one go.

I was waiting for this book for ages. Did not disappoint at all. Can not wait for the “finding my virginity”. Please please Richard, do not dare to do something stupid to kill your self. This world needs you. Love Martin.
