Publisher's Summary

Sir Richard Branson is an English business magnate, investor and philanthropist. He founded the Virgin Group, which controls more than 400 companies. Branson expressed his desire to become an entrepreneur at a young age. His first business venture, at the age of 16, was a magazine called Student.
In 1970, he set up a mail-order record business. He opened a chain of record stores, Virgin Records-later known as Virgin Megastores-in 1972. Branson's Virgin brand grew rapidly during the 1980s, as he set up Virgin Atlantic airline and expanded the Virgin Records music label.
In March 2000, Branson was knighted at Buckingham Palace for "services to entrepreneurship". For his work in retail, music and transport (with interests in land, air, sea and space travel), his taste for adventure, and for his humanitarian work, he became a prominent figure.
In 2002, he was named in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. In 2004, he founded spaceflight corporation Virgin Galactic, noted for the SpaceShipOne project. In November 2017, Forbes listed Branson's estimated net worth at $5.1 billion.

I wonder what I could do?

Lives like Branson’s should make us all stop and take inventory of our hours and years.

Here is an entrepreneur who put British Airways to shame in their own industry, and literally aimed for the moon and landed among the stars. You only have to be right once, and this guy seems to hit the jackpot with each new endeavor.

This is a good short introduction. I learned everything I wanted to know and several things that I didn’t know that I wanted to know about the life of the founder of the best airline trip I have ever had.

Good organization and narration.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
