Branson at his best!

Great to hear Sir Richard reading out loud his book as you get to feel the passion and dedication behind his words. I listened to all of this without stopping which is a testament to his content always giving good tips along the way to a would-be entrepreneur.

Very good and easy read (listening).

It took so little time to finish reading, I couldn't wait for good moment to read on, so I used audible to be able to read on the go :) Author gave good example and brought out useful tips for business starters and also for experienced entrepreneurs.

A great way of thinking

Some wonderful ideas and well explained. He does have a bee in his bonnet about British Airways though.

Very Repetitive.

If you like other books by Richard Branson, you are likely to enjoy this, mainly because a lot of it is simply lifted from the others.

The voice is that of Branson, which is a nice touch but overall probably not as valuable as one would hope.
