Fifty years ago, Sir Richard Branson started his first business, and he hasn’t stopped since. In his new autobiography, Finding My Virginity, the Virgin founder shares his personal, intimate thoughts on five decades as the world’s ultimate entrepreneur. This is the true account of how the Virgin founder reinvented himself and his brand for the 21st century while continuing to push boundaries, break rules and reach for the stars in more ways than one. This is the story of the man behind the beard, the business, the bravado and the brand.

In Finding My Virginity, Branson shares the secrets that have seen his family business grow from a student magazine into a global brand. He discusses his dream of private citizens one day flying into space, an idea that developed from a childhood fantasy to the brink of reality. He also shares his focusing shift from battling bigger rivals to changing business for good. Go behind the scenes as Branson creates the world’s first commercial “spaceline,” Virgin Galactic. Learn how Branson created 12 different billion-dollar businesses and hundreds more companies across dozens of sectors, going from living on a houseboat to owning a private island.

It’s not all business though: Join Sir Richard as he juggles working life with his dedication to his wife and family. Get the real story behind his adventures with everyone from Bill Gates and Kate Moss to Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. Get under the skin of his world record attempts on land, sea and air. See how the original business hippy adapted to becoming a doting “grand-dude” to his four grandchildren.

This book goes far beyond numbers and achievements—it’s a journey into the heart and mind of Britain’s best-loved businessman. Join us for the rollercoaster ride of a lifetime with Sir Richard Branson.
