Richard Branson’s Books: Why Did We Review Three?

In one weekend, we read and reviewed three Richard Branson books. Here’s what we learned. And… here’s how to read his books.


Richard Branson’s Books: Why Did We Review Three?

When we mentioned Richard Branson in one of our posts we got an instant, strong, positive response. And why not? He’s an iconoclast who’s made good on his own terms. He started from nothing, and he’s been at it for over 40 years. When he writes… should we read? There was only one way to find out. So, in one weekend, we read three of Richard Branson’s best-known books. What we found entertained us, surprised us, and occasionally, dismayed us.


GoodBusiness Monday with Richard Branson, Google News, and a Link

GoodBusiness Monday: Warren Buffett, Tea, and a Link

When Warren Buffett says something, I listen.  Here’s advice worth reading, first thing Monday morning. “I can’t remember what I paid for that first copy of ‘The Intelligent Investor’.

‘The Effective Executive’ Business Book Review

Do you want… no, need desperately… to get things done?  Why did GoodBusiness bother to review Peter Drucker’s “The Effective Executive”, a book first published in 1967 and a business classic?  Why should you read further? I have a friend, a long time member of the Service Core of Retired […]


Business Book Review: Great Minds of Business

“Take the measure of the people at the top of a business and you will get a clearer sense of that company’s prospects than from its balance sheet, profitability, cash flow, market share, and market capitalization.  The people matter most, and accounting cannot quantify their value.  Similarly, the drama of […]
