Customer reviews

By Tracy Hudson 29 Jan 2012 3

Well you can't say Sir Richard isn't exuberant about anything he puts his mind too. In Screw Business as Usual he is committed to using the money and contacts he has made during his years at the head of Virgin to change the way other people and organisation do business as well. Instead of focusing on the bottom dollar, he wants the resources to be utilised to help other achieve their dreams. And this does not mean just giving money away - Richard believes in working for it. There are some great stories and products unveiled in his book. Read the full book review at http://www.ourbookclub.net.au/Environmental2012.php

Review quote

"A tantalising glimpse into the workings of the global elite ... as well as plenty of food for thought for the new generation of business leaders who say they want to make the world a better place as well as turn a profit." The Economist
