    DescriptionRichard Branson, who has been called "England's most outrageous billionaire," is also one of the world's most successful business leaders. Since the age of 16, when he founded Student magazine, Branson has been creating companies and finding innovative ways to grow them into the prodigious conglomerate known as the Virgin Group. At the age of 20, Branson founded a mail-order record retailer. Two years later he built a recording studio where the first artist signed to his Virgin label, Mike Oldfield, recorded the haunting soundtrack to The Exorcist. Decades later, industries as varied as entertainment (Virgin Music), retail (Virgin Megastores), transportation (Virgin Airlines), and telecommunications (Virgin Mobile) all bear Branson's business moniker. For the first time, the most thought-provoking, revealing, and inspiring quotes from Branson are compiled in a single book. Virgin Rebel: Richard Branson in His Own Words is a comprehensive guidebook to the inner workings of the Virgin Group chairman and founder. Hundreds of Branson's best quotes, comprising thoughts on business, music, entrepreneurship, politics, exploration, and life lessons, provide an intimate and direct look into the mind of this modern business icon.

    Review quote
    PRAISE FOR AGATE B2'S NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING SERIES, IN THEIR OWN WORDS: "[I, Steve] is the same treatment given such luminaries as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Hitchens and offers Jobs's views on life, death, technology and design, among other topics." -- Timothy R. Smith, The Washington Post "[Impatient Optimist] is like eating salted peanuts: Once you start reading, it's hard to stop." -- Anne Fisher, CNN Money "A new book revealing many of Steve Jobs' most illuminating quotes..." -- Lance Whitney, CNET "A 160-page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P.T. Barnum." -- Ben Popper, The New York Observer BetaBeat blog "A much better Jobs product is coming soon. It'll entertain you for hours, and no -- it is not a Jobs-branded iPad or anything similarly high-tech. It is, friends, an old-fashioned book!" -- Hillary Reinsberg, Mogulite "Inspirational reading pleasure." -- Courtney Boyd Myers, The Next Web "The kind of book that you read, think about, and then pass on to a friend or colleague...I learned a lot about Jobs' thinking process." -- Allen Stern, CenterNetworks "[Boy Billionaire] reveals the intimate thoughts and beliefs of the man who has arguably created one of the world's largest companies...and who is also one of the world's greatest social connectors." - Strategy Driven "A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom..." -- Michael Roach, Law Technology News
