A fascinating and intimate insight into the last twenty years of the world’s most famous entrepreneur and Britain’s best-loved businessman, Richard will reveal the professional and personal highs and lows behind Virgin’s unprecedented rise from family business to global brand, launching 12 different billion dollar businesses and hundreds more companies across dozens of sectors. Richard will reveal for the first time in his own words the true stories behind the professional, personal and political headlines – including the accident at the commercial spaceline Virgin Galactic, and surviving one of the biggest crises he has ever faced; building a life on Necker Island (and that fire); and his close relationship with Barack Obama – as well as run-ins with Donald Trump. All while continuing to successfully reinvent himself and build one of the most iconic brands of the entury.
Richard says, ‘You can only lose your virginity once. But in every aspect of my life – building businesses, raising my family, embarking upon adventures – I try to do things for the first time every day. Finding My Virginity starts where Losing My Virginity ends, at the dawn of the new millennium. This is my account of the past two decades – how I’ve reinvented the Virgin brand, pushed boundaries, broken rules and reached for the stars in more ways than one’.
Finding My Virginity: The New Autobiography by Richard Branson in hardback is available now and the paperback will be published by Virgin Books on July 5th 2018 in the UK and worldwide, and July 10th in the US - pre-order your copy now.
