Publisher's Summary

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 book 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.

    Just amazing that one person can achieve so much across so many different areas....and he's still not done yet! Richard Branson should be cloned. Virgin Clones ? ;-)

    Story
    "Rollercoaster ride"

    This is a fascinating, open and honest account of his personal and business life spanning from the beginning and looking into the future. His laid back approach to life and business is something we should all adopt. So many pearls of wisdom and take homes from this book and I thoroughly recommend. Thanks for sharing RB!

    "Not bad. Not great."

    Easy reading/listening. A bit too personal and not enough business insight. Would have been nice to hear about tips / formulas Richard follows. Daily routines etc etc. Was lacking in real substance and value I feel. Had hoped to take lots of notes. Didn't.

    "Honest and inspiring - the antidote to 2017."

    If you've ever wondered why the Virgin brand walks, talks and acts in the way it does, then this book is for you. Gripping, entertaining, and honest. Start to finish I was hooked. It's like having a conversation with Richard - wonderful.

    "A Must-Listen For Richard Branson Fans."

    Listen! You're going to love this audio book! If you're not that much into reading a book (the book is bigger than you think) then listening to the audio will suit you. Steve West is an amazing narrator! When you listen to him it sounds like Sir Richard Branson himself is reading the book. A great choice for a narrator.

    Without boring you with too much info, this autobiography basically picks up from where it left off. Anyway... enough of me scribbling words. Go out and buy it and check it out for yourself. Screw it! Just do it! ;)

    This is my first ever audio book, I guess I just lost my virginity of the audio books. Richard Branson is such an interesting and inspiring grandude, and thoroughly look forward to reading/listening to his next autobiography.
    Cheers Sir Rich.

    "inspiring and enjoyable"

    never realised how interesting Richard Branson is or how much he has done. Just loved it ! as a nearly 40 year old I should have known more about his businesses , activities and conservation work but I barely knew anything now I feel like I was a fly on the way all through his adult life.

    Story
    "Smug and arrogant sounding narrator"

    It was tough to listen to the first 5hrs but I couldn't go on any further. The narrator uses American grammar not British and just sounds far too smug. Especially when describing skiing holidays and having lunch with Obama etc etc. Too much trumpet blowing for my liking combined with a smug sounding narrator just makes me want to puke.
