Inhaltsangabe

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.

Habe mir mehr erwartet

Bin ehrlich gesagt etwas enttäuscht von diesem Hörbuch. Ich habe jetzt schon mehrere Biografien gehört (Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Warten Buffet) und fand diese am schlechtesten. Es war keine wirkliche Reihenfolge erkennbar, nach der erzählt wurde. Ich habe sehr viel Respekt vor der Leistung von Richard Branson, aber ich persönlich konnte nur einige Punkte aus den 18h mitnehmen. Ich habe auf 1.4 facher Geschwindigkeit gehört, normalerweise höre ich noch etwas schneller.
Was mich am meisten gestört hat, war die bestimmt 2 h andauernde Selbstloberei. Das war sehr direkt und passt irgendwie nicht zu einem Milliardär. Auch die geäußerten Werte wirkten auf mich nicht überzeugend. Trotzdem bin ich dankbar, für einige Stunden die Gedanken von einem Milliardär gehört zu haben, und das für 9,99.

Fascinating and inspiring

Branson' s passion for life is contagious. This autobiography is a marvellous account of a very remarkable life. There are lessons to be learned for every walk of life, ranging from entrepreneurship, learning, creativity, risk taking, politics, to family life and marriage. Fantastic book.

great inspiration for anybody who thinks different

such a joy to know that there are still people out there who reflect themselves and learn. Still never forget to live and keep up the motivation. Seems impossible for many and therefore this book will show a great example of how to do the right thing.
be the change u want to see in life

Paradox

After hours of inspiration it’s disappointing to read about Richards admiration for George Soros in a week of receiving funding from one of the worlds most oppressive regime. Words don’t mean a lot when money talks ...
