Finding My Virginity is the highly-anticipated follow-up to Branson’s now iconic two-million copy selling autobiography Losing My Virginity, and coincides with Branson’s 50th year in business.
A fascinating and intimate insight into the last twenty years of the world’s most famous entrepreneur and Britain’s best-loved businessman, Branson will reveal the professional and personal highs and lows behind Virgin’s unprecedented rise from family business to global brand, launching 12 different billion dollar businesses and hundreds more companies across dozens of sectors.
The author will reveal for the first time in his own words the true stories behind the professional, personal and political headlines – including the accident at the commercial spaceline Virgin Galactic, and surviving one of the biggest crises he has ever faced; building a life on Necker Island (and that fire); and his close relationship with Barack Obama – as well as run-ins with Donald Trump. All while continuing to successfully reinvent himself and build one of the most iconic brands of the 21st century.
Jake Lingwood, Deputy Managing Director and Publisher at Ebury says: “We are so thrilled to be working with Richard again on his new autobiography, which has many of the same amazing qualities as the man himself – it’s honest, inspiring and great fun – and is the book that his legions of fans have been waiting for”.
Sir Richard Branson says: “You can only lose your virginity once. But in every aspect of my life – building businesses, raising my family, embarking upon adventures – I try to do things for the first time every day. Finding My Virginity starts where Losing My Virginity ends, at the dawn of the new millennium. This is my account of the past two decades – how I’ve reinvented the Virgin brand, pushed boundaries, broken rules and reached for the stars in more ways than one”.
Finding My Virginity: The New Autobiography by Richard Branson will be published by Virgin Books on 5th October 2017.
