Narration issue

I am a fan of Mr Branson and what he stands for. I enjoyed his original autobiography in paperback form some years ago. So was eager to listen to this latest issue.



For me and no offence to Adrian Mulraney the narrator but I find his style impossible to listen to as much as I have tried. For me a narration if not by the author should reflect the style of Mr Branson, a listener should almost be able to hear and feel it's Mr Branson saying it. But this narration seems at complete odds with Mr. Branson's style and makes me feels its not coming from him.



Disappointment is not the word!



I did listen to the sample before purchase which did not have the same effect.

Good for a robot

Good Book, with, in my opinion an essential business message. However, It sounds like it was recorded by an automated robot, which drives you mad from start to finish. I almost gave up a few times because of it

Good, but heard it before

Well written and entertaining, with some powerful messages. However, if you have read any of RB's other books, you may have heard most of it before

Motivational and thought provoking

Enjoyed this book as it looked at a number of people who have "made it happen".

Dreadful choice of voice to narrate a Richard Branson book

A more boring and dull narration I don't think is possible. Couldn't listen although I do enjoy books by this author.

Philanthropy at its humblest

Well narrated and you can just picture Richard Branson writing it. Not sure it's a business book, but it does tell the story that business and philanthropy are great partners.
