The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (New York, NY: Penguin Group, 2014)

In this book, Richard Branson shares the knowledge and insights accumulated over the course of his career as he built an empire of diverse businesses.

From an educational and inspirational perspective, The Virgin Way ranks in the middle of the pack.  I do not recall learning much that I could apply in running my business, but the individual (i.e., Richard Branson) and his story make for an entertaining read. The book’s content is presented in the form of life lessons learned from Branson’s experiences, and it is delivered with a laid-back, casual tone.

In short, this book is best suited for the casual reader interested in enjoying the story of an entrepreneur and his journey.
