SIR RICHARD BRANSON is a hugely successful international entrepreneur, adventurer and icon, and is chairman of the Virgin Group. Very good book, genuine and honest. 2 people found this helpful.

SIR RICHARD BRANSON is a hugely successful international entrepreneur, adventurer and icon, and is chairman of the Virgin Group. His autobiography, Losing My Virginity, and his books on business, Screw It, Let's Do It and Business Stripped Bare, are all international bestsellers. He lives on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands and is married with two grown-up children.

Pros: I think it's pretty hard to mess up a biography, and this book is largely biographical. People are interesting, regardless of who they are, and Branson is no exception. Richard Branson has a lot of good stories and can put his money where his mouth is, although this book does a poor job of putting it across. What it does do is portray him as positive, intelligent, gullible, adventurous, impulsive, and filled with a very strong belief that life is to be lived.

Throughout my life I have achieved many remarkable things. Today we are increasingly aware of the effects of our actions on the environment, and I strongly believe that we each have a responsibility, as individuals and organisations, to do no harm. A lot has changed since I founded Virgin in 1968, and I'll explain how I intend to take my business and my ideas to the next level and the new and exciting areas - such as launching Virgin Fuels - into which Virgin is currently moving.

Have funóHave a positive outlook, and when something stops being fun, move on. Be innovativeóThe system is not sacred:Think creatively. Have sex appealóCreate excitement in everything you do. Do some goodóChange the world, even in a small way.

WOW! Amazing book by Sir Richard. Great stories from his life that shares nuggets of wisdom to illustrate what's possible if one keeps learning, have goals, belief, determination and will to take first step.

My respect for Sir Richard have grown more highly after reading Screw It,Let's Do It! Read this book, you will be better off having done it. We can all do with some inspiration and help.

The book you don't read, won't help. Invest in yourself and your future today! You will be glad you did.

Heck, Screw It, Just Do It!

Richard Branson is a house-hold name in global business. More often than not, we perceive entrepreneurship as a mind-boggling undertaking that keeps people awake all night. In his book titled Screw it, Let's Do it (2006),Branson brings a new perspective to the manner in which business ought to be perceived. He contends that it is feasible to have fun while making a ton of money. As he puts it, "I work hard and I play hard"(1). Brandson says he is honest when he tells people that there are no secrets to becoming a millionaire. He even insists that "there are no rules to follow in business"(12). Many folks reading Branson's words would be tempted to take them with a pinch of salt but he proves with verifiable anecdotes in this book that it is very feasible to make a lot of money without sacrificing personal pleasure. His modus operandi is "Screw it, let's do it." He does share some basic tenets that guarantee success in the business world:"Believe it can be done, have goals, never give up, prepare well, have faith in yourself, and live life to the full"(1). The lesson l learned reading Branson's book is to keep trying and to never give up.Screw it, Let's Do it is not all about business. Branson feeds readers with existential lessons. He puts a high premium on family values. In his own words, "put the family... first"(68). He describes his Virgin Corporation as "a big family"(68).This business guru gives pride of place to teamwork. He has the conviction that successful entrepreneurs have the savvy to pick the right people and reward talent. In his own words, " I have learned always to reward talent"(76).

Richard Branson's book was a pleasant surprise to me. It feels good to hear from someone who is filthy rich and yet so down-to-earth. I would recommend this book to friends, family members and co-workers without hesitation. It is a tiny little book that can change one's life forever.

Short, concrete, well organized, super personal. You'll read this during a short flight, but probably will hang in your mind for a lot longer...
The book is a collection of Richard Branson's lessons and life mottos. Surprisingly a lot of them (probably half) were forged when he was a kid. Much of them are very stoic-like for an apparently very-loose-guy, but totally worth learning from his stories and introspection. The book is far more than a live life to the fullest, seek happiness and follow your heart kind of reading. It goes chapter after chapter collecting a list of life commandments that let you not only have a sense of how Branson is, but also how his decision making process is like and how he weights things in business (risk). In fact, I want to know more about the Branson character and probably will read another of his books. Good buy.

Side note: I haven't read any other Branson's books but to me this one feels very personal and sincere. No ghost writer here I guess.

This book is quite short (hence Quick Reads), but it is full of sage advice for anyone at any point of their life. Each chapter starts with several aphorisms and then goes to explain their relevance to Mr Branson and subsequently to you. It also gives a glimpse at what it has taken Mr Branson to get to the position he is in now and the underlying philosophy behind his business. While it by no means tells anywhere near the full story of any of the many tales it provides sufficient for relevance to the aphorism.

I really enjoyed reading this book and will certainly read it again at least once. I picked this up at a time of change in my own life and found almost everything to be relevant and mostly what I needed to hear, without frills or complicated explanations. Clear and precise, it is a good guide for living a full and rewarding life, all the while doing, or at least trying, the right thing by all.

Great read. Strongly recommend it.

It's rare that I stop reading a book half way through. And with this one I really wanted to but kept going only because a friend had read it and wanted to discuss.
It's filled with very generic advice (such as 'Be bold, aim high' and 'Challenge yourself') that you will find in any book of this genre.
The writing itself is not very good and I found the book quite boring.
There is alot of time spent on Branson explaining how awesome Branson is.

I have read, shared, and recommended this book to everyone I know. It was so hard to put down. I actually read this book in a little over an hour. If the world ran every business like Sir Richard Branson, everyone might enjoy going to work everyday! This book is entertaining and inspirational.

I've always said that if you really want to learn something new go and search advice from people who are the best at what you are looking for. So... this book is a very concise but really helpful guide and anecdotes of who is considered one of the best Entrepreneurs of the world. He summons really different points of view from how he created a Magazine, his Record Company (who signed the Pistols and the Tubular Bells which is the group that created the soundtrack for The Excorcist blockbuster), his Airline Company (that strived to survive because British Ariways was very competitive to them) and even how he bought and Island!!!

Not to even mention that Richard was able to interview people like John Lennon or Mick Jagger whilst in his youth.

The best by so far if you want to learn on Entrepreneurship!
