Losing My Virginity
Losing My Virginity, Sir Richard Branson
Another parting gift from TB when he left us last Christmas, thanks for a good read Big Fella. This guy sure has lived the life, he really has done it all. What comes across a number of times in the book, and Branno is the first to admit it, is that his fame and fortune is really due in a huge part to a lot of luck. The number of times he’s put his livelihood on the line, whether it be the erly days of his magazine publishing ventures or more recently with his record stores and airlines, he just manages to keep coming out on top of some quite risky situations. But, I have to give him credit, (Mark Rubenstein would probably say something about a billion people rolling a dice a thousand times and having someone roll 1000 sixes) he must have a considerable degree of business savvy to get where he is… Definitely an enjoyable read, I’d like to read the uncut version; Branson touches on some of his more racy escapades throughout the book but keeps things G-rated for the most part, I have no doubt this guy’s seen it all.
