In September 2012, a YouGov poll conducted in Britain found that the person British workers would most like as their manager was Sir Richard Branson.

I read all Branson's Books! This one not so great!
This book is a mish mash of stories, mostly comparing Virgin to other companies and explaining how Virgin is as good as those companies. I'm generality not that critical about Virgin but this book seems poorly thought out and goes on about other companies more than Virgin, no real meat just what we already know. If you;ve read any of Richards other books, you'll not learn anything new.
No, no need! No real life learning content in there!
Focus on real stories from Virgin. Less comparison to other companies. and less use of the "The Virgin Way"
Interesting but dull...
The introduction has a strong echo making it quite hard to listen to. The remainder is interesting and offers some good advice and snippets of experience. But blimey, the narrators voice is so dull! There is no life in it!
Been less dreary and fluctuate the tone occasionally!
Good book, poor narration.
