It's business school, the Branson way.   Whether you're interested in starting your own business, improving your leadership skills, or simply looking for inspiration from one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time, Richard Branson has the answers.   Like a Virgin brings together some of his best advice, distilling the experiences and insights that have made him one of the world's most recognized and respected business leaders.   In his trademark thoughtful and encouraging voice, Branson shares his knowledge like a close friend. He'll teach you how to be more innovative, how to lead by listening, how to enjoy your work, and much more.   In hindsight, Branson is thankful he never went to business school. Had he conformed to the conventional dos and don'ts of starting a business, would there have been a Virgin Records? A Virgin Atlantic? So many of Branson's achievements are due to his unyielding deter­mination to break the rules and rewrite them himself. Here's how he does it.

User Review  - Bill Donhiser - Goodreads

Really enjoyed this "business" book. Fun to read with short chapters. It really hits hard on treating your staff well and they will treat your customers well. Richard Branson does a remarkably good job of distilling business to common sense and honesty Read full review
