Description

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.show more

Our customer reviews

If you haven't read Losing My Virginity by the same author then you're likely to find this book interesting and relatively motivational; but to be honest you're better off putting your money into LMV and getting that instead. It contains all the same stories in a lot more detail and because of this it's loads more fun, lot more interesting and definitely more motivational. If you've read LMV then don't get this book; you've already read it. I've given it a rating of 4 stars because as a stand-alone book it's okay; it just doesn't compare to it's bigger, older brother.show more
