Description

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.

Great book, but feels a bit disconnected

It's a great book and insight to Richard Branson life. However it feels more like a collection of notes, so it feels a bit on the surface, without digging much deeper on any subjects.

Listened to it in one go.

I was waiting for this book for ages. Did not disappoint at all. Can not wait for the “finding my virginity”. Please please Richard, do not dare to do something stupid to kill your self. This world needs you. Love Martin.

An ego-driven account of self-consciousness

A retired child showing the size of his ego to the galactic. Good boy Richard... Now go brush your teeth, and go to bed.

Respect

I have always been a huge fan of Sir Branson and love the way this story picks up from 2000 onwards. The man has balls and I respect the fact that even though he falls from time to time (and literally in some instances), he has the uncanny ability to pick up where he left off having learned a lesson and with an optimistic approach. The narrator of this story could be Richard himself and I was totally absorbed in the story and felt at times that I was there in the thick of things!

Story collections from the life of the author

This book shares a collection of stories from the author without a cohesive narrative. I think it will have been a great addition to the previous book but perhaps that will have been made it a little too long

Enjoyed this thoroughly!!!!

Very engaging!! It usually takes me a while to finish a book but this took me little over a week.
The stories captivated me and his humor kept me awake.
Only downside is a few curse words. I’m a Christian so that was a bit off putting. However, that did not take away from the book. Well, for me anyway.
I’m an entrepreneur and try to be generous but I realize I should be doing much more for the poor and young.. Currently on vacation but gonna set up a foundation that focuses on education or should I say re-education when I get home. Looking forward to that!! I’m from Jamaica in the Caribbean.
Also going to purchase Losing my Virginity although I should have listened to that first!!🙃

Forever a Virgin

at one point i felt as though Richard himself was next to me. Really amazing job. The book felt complete with enough to keep me praying for the Knight to reach well past 100 in order to get the 3rd book in the series. With this Inspiration I hope to live out every lesson shared in my own ventures.

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 ...
