Losing My Virginity (USED)

"Oh, screw it, let's do it."
That's the philosophy that has allowed Richard Branson, in slightly more than twenty-five years, to spawn so many successful ventures. From the airline business (Virgin Atlantic Airways), to music (Virgin Records and V2), to cola (Virgin Cola), to retail (Virgin Megastores), and nearly a hundred others, ranging from financial services to bridal wear, Branson has a track record second to none.
Losing My Virginity is the unusual, frequently outrageous autobiography of one of the great business geniuses of our time. When Richard Branson started his first business, he and his friends decided that "since we're complete virgins at business, let's call it just that: Virgin." Since then, Branson has written his own "rules" for success, creating a group of companies with a global presence, but no central headquarters, no management hierarchy, and minimal bureaucracy.
Many of Richard Branson's companies--airlines, retailing, and cola are good examples--were started in the face of entrenched competition. The experts said, "Don't do it." But Branson found golden opportunities in markets in which customers have been ripped off or underserved, where confusion reigns, and the competition is complacent.
And in this stressed-out, overworked age, Richard Branson gives us a new model: a dynamic, hardworking, successful entrepreneur who lives life to the fullest. Family, friends, fun, and adventure are equally important as business in Branson's life. Losing My Virginity is a portrait of a productive, sane, balanced life, filled with rich and colorful stories:
Crash-landing his hot-air balloon in the Algerian desert, yet remaining determined to have another go at being the first to circle the globe
Signing the Sex Pistols, Janet Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Boy George, and Phil Collins
Fighting back when British Airways took on Virgin Atlantic and successfully suing this pillar of the British business establishment
Swimming two miles to safety during a violent storm off the coast of Mexico
Selling Virgin Records to save Virgin Atlantic
Staging a rescue flight into Baghdad before the start of the Gulf War . . .
And much more. Losing My Virginity is the ultimate tale of personal and business survival from a man who combines the business prowess of Bill Gates and the promotional instincts of P. T. Barnum.
Also available in the UK from Virgin Publishing, and in Canada from General Publishing,

Members of the Club: Coming of Age of Executive Women (USED)

Members of the Club: Coming of Age of Executive Women (USED)

$8.99
More Info
In Members of the Club, an insightful look at life at the top for senior women executives, Driscoll and Goldberg suggest that the well-publicized but outdated concept of the "glass ceiling" masks the real issues at stake. Drawing on in-depth interviews with many of America's women corporate leaders, the authors persuasively demonstrate that a woman can reach the top of the corporate world if she knows the correct strategies. To illustrate their point, the authors clearly lay out the routes that these and other women have successfully used to move into the exclusive circle of economic leaders. They show how women executives are becoming adept at bringing in business clients and detail the powerful "rainmaking" strategies corporate women are now using. They also discuss the importance of establishing one's personal influence in the larger business community and beyond, revealing the effective communication styles and sophisticated media relations employed by top women executives. In addition, the authors show how women are finally overcoming the traditional corporate bias against utilizing female executives in international assignments as they move into key overseas posts so critical to professional success. And Driscoll and Goldberg demonstrate the importance of women's professional networks as leadership training grounds for women at all levels. Finally, the authors explain that while the reported glass ceiling has not deterred today's senior women executives, these and younger women do still experience a much subtler form of bias, which they label "the comfort zone" - an apt name for the habits and practices of some corporate executives who unconsciously still exclude women from thebreakfast powwow or the client golf game. However, as Driscoll and Goldberg point out, even the most clannish executives are beginning to wake up and understand how the talent pool of women in The Club can help make America more productive.
