Finding My Virginity
The New AutobiographyBook - 2017
Twenty years after his memoir Losing My Virginity, the world's ultimate entrepreneur is back with the rest of the story. Losing My Virginity shared the tale of how he built Virgin from a student magazine into one of the greatest brands in history. No challenge was too daunting, no opportunity too outlandish to pursue. Now, fifty years after starting his first business, Branson shares the details of a lifetime of triumphs and failures and what he really thinks about his life and career. His never-ending quest to push boundaries, break rules, and seek new frontiers. Branson fearlessly expanded the Virgin brand into new categories such as mobile, media, fitness, and banking. He even started Virgin Galactic, the world's first commercial spaceline. He takes us behind the scenes of the brains, heart, and sacrifices that have gone into making private spaceflight an imminent reality - even after the biggest crisis Branson has ever faced. But this book is more than a series of business adventures. It's also the story of Branson's evolution from hotshot entrepreneur to passionate philanthropist. And it's the story of his personal quest to become a better son, husband, father, and "grand-dude" to his four grandchildren. The gripping account of a man who will never stop reaching for the stars, in more ways than one.
