Business the Richard Branson Way: 10 Secrets of the World's Greatest Brand Builder (Big Shots Series)
Author: Des Dearlove | Publisher: Capstone
This is a very well written book and for less than a tenner is worth getting. It manages to give some insight into the workings of Richard Bransons Virgin empire, but certainly isn't going to turn the budding entrepreneur into a multi-millionaire business tycoon. My only complaint is that large sections of the material in this publication have been 'lifted' directly from other books written about the toothy tycoon. If you're a fan of Mr. Branson then I would recommend you order his autobiography.
