Screw It, Let's Do It by Richard Branson

Richard Branson, a flamboyant entrepreneur, who lives life king-size, literally and not just for the sake of saying. A man who lives life on the edge and one who is completely passionate about life and believes in living every minute of his life to its fullest. He has broken so many records and performed some extraordinary venturesome stunts in life. From running a number of businesses successfully to flying in a balloon and breaking world records, he has done it all. In fact the press has coined a term, 'Mavericks in Paradise' describing him and his partners at Virgin. Branson's entrepreneurial journey started when he was sixteen years old with a student magazine and today his business encircles an entire gamut of lifestyle related ventures which include airlines, fitness clubs, trains, music, books, holidays, megastores, credit cards, space ventures, luxury game reserves, telecom, and now it seems he is also going to show his mettle in films as well. Branson also owns a private island called Necker Island, located in the British Virgin Islands.
