"An excellent listen"
So interesting that I found myself making excuses to find time to hear more and got through it in a couple of days. Interesing insights and so much better that it's read by the man himself, from wherever he preferred.
"really good listen"
Well worth a listen for up start business people who feel the traditional business model is not for them.
"honest business book"
Different from the books he has done before Richard Branson gives solid business advice from his own experiences.
"An excellent listen"
Richard Branson is someone I admire enormously for his ability to achieve multiple successes over a long period of time, and that's something he talks about at some length. Once I started listening I couldn't stop - quite compelling.
I was surprised to find the narration was by Richard himself and I considered it a major bonus. He has a good easy-going style.
If you're in business - listen to this audiobook!
"A Must Read"
This is a really good listen, not only from the practical `tit bits` and fascinating story of one of our Great business men, but vastly enhanced by the fact that it?s read by the man himself. Unlike his autobiography, Loosing My Virginity, Business Stripped Bare is an excellent listen as the author is able to articulate far more so than any narrator, the feeling and exhilaration behind the stories and history, the amusement and exasperation? A simple must read for all Branson enthusiasts and business managers alike. A definite will listen again too.
Reasonably good book. I enjoyed listening to it. Thanks to Audible for having this in store.
"Very interesting & enjoyable listen"
Great book. He does as you would expect talk about the Virgin brand a lot, very positively! but its interesting, balanced and honest. Would recommend.
"Business Stripped Bare."
This was my first book on Audible.co.uk. I found it interesting, funny, witty and very enjoyable. I believe through this reading/listen, I learned to love self narrated biographies. Sir Richard gives us a very compelling personal look at his life. Well worth one credit. I ended becoming a fan of audible books.
"Business Stripped Bare"
This was my first book through Audible.co.uk and thought I would spend 10 mins at a time on it but found it very interesting and enjoyable as not a very fast reader, I read/listen to it in about a week. His explanations of a few of his ventures and how he addapted them to his style and great customer service which is a must in the present day, wish others could adopt his style. Great book and makes a differance being read by author
"Not as exciting as his persona"
I enjoyed the read but felt he had some scripted parts (obliged to say for business reasons?). Found it less interesting than his "out there" persona...
