I ahve to admit, when I first saw these "Bite-sized Biographies" I was skeptical. I mean, seriously, how much could they jam into a 30 minute bio? Turns out, a lot. To be certain, this is nothing more than a scant summary of his life. It includes all relevant events, it just does not go into extreme depth when doing so. Still you might be surprised at just how much information is packed into the bio.
Branson is a fascinating man, and some of the things that happened to him are incredible, such as being forced by his mother to find his father, who was secreted in a 4 mile area, at the tender age of 4. Or him having a secret love who just happened to be the daughter of the headmaster of his school. The book really focuses on his failures and triumphs, but really emphasizes how he learned from every mistake he made.
Jimmy Kieffer does a great job as the narrator. He makes listening easy, and he keeps your attention. Very commanding voice. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Refusal to let your failures stop you is part of the recipe for Richard's success. Starting his first business venture at age 16, this opportunist was determined to be business savvy even with learning disabilities. This book is a short summary of the life of this virgin molgul. Music fans with limited time will enjoy this short bio on the birth of virgin records. I was given this free review copy and have voluntary left this review.
