Summary, etc.: Global business icon Richard Branson has written many books, but none have been more popular than his first memoir, 1998's Losing My Virginity. Now he's finally publishing his second volume of memoirs, covering all of his fascinating ups and downs of the past two decades.
Fifty years after starting his first business, Branson shares the candid details of a lifetime of triumphs and failures and what he really thinks about his unique life and career. As he led Virgin into the new millennium, Branson expanded the brand into new categories, all while preserving its iconoclastic, scrappy spirit. Now he takes readers behind the scenes of the incredible brains, heart, and sacrifices that have gone into making private spaceflight an imminent reality.
