Richard Branson is a rare combination of mogul and daredevil, a shameless self-promoter who has risked his life to raise the profile of his professional endeavors, and who has raked in the rewards of his unconventional approach. Here, childhood friends and family members, including his father and mother, provide intimate insights into Branson's full-speed-ahead personality. We'll see how he dropped out of school at the age of 16 to start a popular youth magazine before moving into the record business, where he struck gold with artists like Boy George and Phil Collins. And, of course, BIOGRAPHY® charts his high-flying endeavors, from launching a trans-Atlantic airline to attempting to circumnavigate the globe in a hot-air balloon.
Britain's answer to Ted Turner is the living embodiment of the maxim that to reach the pinnacle of success, one must be willing to risk all.
