Richard Reed built Innocent Drinks from a smoothie stall on a street corner to one of the biggest brands in Britain. He credits his success to four brilliant pieces of advice, each given to him just when he needed them most.
Ever since, it has been Richard's habit, whenever he meets somebody he admires, to ask them for their best piece of advice. If they could tell him just one thing, what would it be?
Richard has collected pearls of wisdom from some of the most remarkable, inspiring and game-changing people in the world - in business, tech, philanthropy, politics, sport, art, spirituality, medicine, film, and design.
From Hollywood greats like Judi Dench and Richard Curtis, to entrepreneurial legends like Richard Branson and Simon Cowell; from sports stars and TV personalities like Andy Murray and James Cordon to political activists and born survivors like Mandela's Comrades and Katie Piper, Richard has picked some of the world's most interesting brains to give you a lesson in how to live, how to love, how to create and how to succeed.

I bought this book with a fear that it would be little more than a sickly collection of life quotes from famous people. I couldn't have been more wrong. Richard Reed meets some incredible people from all sides of the spectrum, and gives a greater insight into their personalities than the media allow. Sure, there are many quotes (some sickly) of which many are repeated etc "be nice". But knowing that takes nothing away from the beauty of this book, charmingly written by the modest Richard Reed. I simply can't wait until the next volume.
go through life meet people ask them one question and write out their responses - such a simple concept and yet so brilliant in execution. From Richard Branson to Corp Andy Reid via Bill Clinton and Joanna Lumley the people in the book are from all walks of life and all have great pearls of wisdom to impart - although Indra Nooyi's is one I 100% won't be following!
Absolute must read/listen
There's a huge amount of wisdom in Richard's book and most of it comes from the people he interviews. No politically correct soft interpretations of what the interviewees say, just honest views from people like Joanna Lumley, Richard Branson and Bill Clinton. Read or listen to the book, you will be a better person for doing so!
Great book, easy to listen to if you are busy as each chapter is about 5 mins. Very inspirational too.
