Présentation de l'éditeur

Throughout my life I have achieved many remarkable things. In Screw It, Let's Do It, I will share with you my ideas and the secrets of my success, but not simply because I hope they'll help you achieve your individual goals.
Today we are increasingly aware of the effects of our actions on the environment, and I strongly believe that we each have a responsibility, as individuals and organisations, to do no harm. I will draw on Gaia Capitalism to explain why we need to take stock of how we may be damaging the environment, and why it is up to big companies like Virgin to lead the way in a more holistic approach to business.
In Screw It, Let's Do It I'll be looking forwards to the future. A lot has changed since I founded Virgin in 1968, and I'll explain how I intend to take my business and my ideas to the next level and the new and exciting areas - such as launching Virgin Fuels - into which Virgin is currently moving.
But I have also brought together all the important lessons, good advice and inspirational adages that have helped me along the road to success.
Ironically, I have never been one to do things by the book, but I have been inspired and influenced by many remarkable people. I hope that you too might find a little inspiration between these pages.

Quatrième de couverture

Learn the Secrets of a Global Icon
Throughout my life I have always strived for success - as a business man, in my adventures, as an author and a proud father and husband. I want to share the many truths I've learned along the road to success which have helped me to be the best I can. They include:
Have faith in yourself
Believe that anything can be done
Live life to the full
Never give up
Learn these and other simple truths, and I hope you will be inspired to get the most out of your life and to achieve your goals. People will always try to talk you out of ideas and say: 'It can't be dont',' but if you have faith in yourself you'll find you can achieve almost anything.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Très bon bouquin 8 juin 2010
Par M. Zahabu
Format:Broché
Ce livre m'a permis de comprendre un peu l'homme qui se cache derrière Virgin. Je dois dire qu'il est vraiment agréable de lire ce bouquin (quelques heures suffisent) et M. Branson a su expliquer dans un langage simple ce qui a fait de lui ce qu'il est aujourd'hui. Le grand point positif est qu'il est justement positif dans ce qu'il témoigne. Pas de langue de bois ou faire croire que c'était tellement difficile. J'ai acheté également Loosing my virginity, qui est beaucoup plus complet et qui retrace sa vie entière. It's down to earth stuff!!! I like it.

A lire car ce livre présente une expérience intéressante. Cependant il ne faut pas en attendre plus qu'une expérience hors du commun et un divertissement.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Une belle leçon de vie 29 avril 2015
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Bien entendu, Richard Branson est exceptionnel et le commun des mortels ne pourra jamais rivaliser avec son sens des affaires, son opportunisme, son gout du risque.
Toutefois, l'homme est guidé par des valeurs et nous les présente en toute simplicité.
Si elles ne peuvent s'appliquer dans tous les cas de figure, elles sont en tous cas source de réflexion et vous permettront sans nul doute de vous poser de bonnes questions et vous donner de nouvelles idées.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't waste your time, read "Losing My Virginity" instead. 25 décembre 2006
Par Benny Blanco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I started with Branson's first book, "Losing My Virginity", and was absolutely hooked. That book is compelling, insightful, exciting, inspirational, and well-written. "Screw it, Let's Do It" on the other hand, is none of those things, and feels like a cheap re-hashing of "Losing My Virginity", but without any of the real substance. The writing is poor (leading me to wonder if Branson had a lot of help in writing "Losing My Virginity") and he rushes through anecdotes that he explains in detail in "Losing My Virginity". The whole book feels very cursory and surface-deep, and doesn't do justice to Branson's incredible persona. Don't waste your time, get "Losing My Virginity" instead.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sir Richard's Wonderful Philosophy 2 janvier 2007
Par Steven K. Gold - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Richard Branson made his fortune because he's a shrewd business person, and also because he's been lucky at times. He's successful, however, because of his personality and attitude -- his personal philosophy -- and that's what this book is about. There is nothing earth shattering in his philosophy, except perhaps that it takes an extraordinary person to truly live up to it.

I don't think that Branson was looking to make money on the book, but rather to share some ideas that, for good reason, he truly believes in. He's not one to overcomplicate things, and in this case shorter is better. He keeps it simple because to him it is simple. As other reviewers have noted, it's a small book and it can be read in one sitting. It seems like it was dictated and indeed could benefit from some editing, but perhaps that's what makes the book real and is part of its charm. If you're looking for more then buy his book "Losing My Virginity" which contains some details about his various ventures. Otherwise, Screw It, it's a good read so just buy the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Book 11 juillet 2006
Par Chan Joon Yee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Definitely one of the more useful motivational books I've read. Sir Richard talks about having fun, being bold, challenging yourself, standing on your own feet, valuing the family and doing good.

Without being preachy, Sir Richard pulls out stories from his life to illustrate some of his beliefs, principles and practices. Not having read his other books, I'm quite astounded by some of his life experiences, especially his harrowing escapes from a faulty flying machine and his role in Iraq where he helped secure the release of British hostages.

Short, sweet and simple, it's an excellent read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 LIVE LIFE TO THE FULL ! 22 avril 2008
Par G. Sullam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have read hundreds of business biographies, how-to-do and business books. This is one of the best and I recommend it, because it inspired me like no other business book. The most interesting suggestions are:
- Have fun, work hard and money will come.
- When it's not fun, move on.
- Be bold, aim high.
- Try new things, always try.
- Challenge yourself.
- Money is for making things happen.
- Always think what you can do to help.
My preferite is:"Live life to the full". I recommend this book to every busines student, worker and manager, to reconnect their humanity with their business role.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous! But you should buy and read his others 31 mars 2008
Par ServantofGod - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read the author's "Losing My Virginity" in 2005, rated it a five star with the title "Entertaining, fun, motivatonal, inspiring, simply irresistable!" In fact, I described it as the best biography in my Listmania List. Though I did know this one is just a short update to that, I couldnt help but read it, and still found it very fascinating. Upon writing this review, I just found that there is an 256 page Expanded Edition which is double the size of this. I strongly recommend any potential reader to buy either "Losing My Virginity" or the "Expanded Edition" (which explains the four star here). You will thank me for that.

p.s. Below please find some of my favorite passages for your reference.

A journey of a thousand miles starts with that first step. If you look ahead to th end, and all the weary miles between, with all the dangers you might face, you might never take that first step. And whatever it is you want to achieve in life, if you dont make the effort, you wont reach your goal. So take that first step. There will be many challenges. You might get knocked back - but in the end, you will make it. Good luck!

As soon as something stops being fun, I think it's time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live. pg 22

If you do still have to work for a boss at a job you dont like, as almost everyone does at some point, dont moan about it. Have a positive outlook on life and just get on with it. Work hard and earn your pay. Enjoy the people you come into contact with through your job. And if you are still unhappy, make it instead your goal to divide your private life from your work life. Have fun in your own time, you will feel happier and you'll enjoy your life and your job more. pg 26

I take risks, but they are calculated risks. I weigh up the odds in everything I do. pg 28

I believe in myself (and God, for Narci). I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think, and in the hearts that love. pg 57

What's money for, anyway? It's to make things happen. pg 75

Japanese businessmen taught me how important it was to always keep eyes and ears open and to be polite. They say that you never know who might hear or see you. People talk. Gossip has a habit of getting back to those you gossip about. pg 81

Respect is about how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress. pg 83

Bill Gates said his staff could spend two hours gazing into space as long as their minds were working. pg 92
