Finding My Virginity: The New Autobiography

Random House presents the unabridged audiobook edition of Finding My Virginity by Sir Richard Branson, read by Steve West.

Fifty years ago, Sir Richard Branson started his first business. In his new autobiography, Finding My Virginity, the Virgin founder shares his personal, intimate thoughts on five decades as the world's ultimate entrepreneur.

In Finding My Virginity, Sir Richard Branson shares the secrets that have seen his family business grow from a student magazine into a global brand, his dreams of private citizens flying to space develop from a childhood fantasy to the brink of reality and his focus shift from battling bigger rivals to changing business for good. Following on from where best-selling Losing My Virginity left off at the dawn of the new millennium, Finding My Virginity takes the listener on a roller-coaster ride with the enigmatic entrepreneur. Learn how Branson created 12 different billion-dollar businesses and hundreds more companies across dozens of sectors, going from a houseboat to his own private island.

But this audiobook goes far beyond the numbers - it is a journey into the heart and mind of Britain's best loved businessman. Join Sir Richard as he juggles working life with raising his children, Holly and Sam; building a marriage with his wife, Joan; and creating a unique company culture. Discover how he created a new life on Necker Island while continuing to grow the Virgin brand into all corners of the world. Get the real story behind adventures and run-ins with everyone from Bill Gates and Kate Moss to Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. Go behind the scenes as Sir Richard Branson creates the world's first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic, and handles the biggest crisis he has ever faced. Get under the skin of world record attempts on land, sea and air, and see how the original business hippy adapted to becoming a doting 'grand-dude' to his four grandchildren, Eva-Deia, Etta, Artie and Bluey.

This is the true account of how the Virgin founder reinvented himself and his brand for the 21st century while continuing to push boundaries, break rules and reach for the stars in more ways than one. This is the story of the man behind the beard, the business, the bravado and the brand. Find out how the ultimate entrepreneur did it for the first time - all over again.

    Dog Smart: Evidence-based Training with The Science Dog (English Edition)

    Anyone who lives with and loves dogs knows that they are smart. Really smart. They understand our body language and emotions, can be trained to perform important services, are devoted companions, and enjoy walks, tricks, dog sports or just hangin’ out on the couch. So, how “Dog Smart” are you? What do you know or wish to know about the dog’s history, perceptions, understanding of humans, and responses to different training methods? These topics and more come under the scrutiny of the Science Dog in Linda Case’s latest myth-busting book. Learn to separate fact from fiction about the relationship between dogs and wolves, whether dominance should be a factor in dog training, what forms of reinforcement work best, and how to apply evidence-based training methods. “Dog Smart” will not only help you to be a better trainer, but will give you the tools for communicating the most current information about dogs to others - including the popular Science Dog character, neighbor Joe (who happens to know a lot about dogs).

    Faucheurs de vent - Tome 01 : Le Carrousel des cabochards

    Les vrais pilotes prennent tout de haut... Même la mort.

    1917, Première Guerre Mondiale, front Ouest. Alexandre Marais, as de l’aviation française, a la particularité d’avoir été défiguré et de dissimuler ses blessures de guerre sous un masque. Meurtri dans sa chair et dans son âme, il n’a plus que le vol et les combats aériens comme raisons d’exister. Il était le meilleur, jusqu’à ce que Louis Lafitte, jeune pilote fanfaron et avide de gloire, soit muté dans son escadrille. Alors qu’on leur confie la mission d’abattre Nikolaus Stipetic, terreur du ciel de l’armée allemande, une rivalité s’installe entre ces deux hommes que tout oppose...

    Avec Faucheurs de vent, Thierry Lamy nous plonge dans l’univers passionnant des premiers combats aériens et de leurs pionniers au courage exemplaire. Une histoire de camaraderie et de rivalités au souffle romanesque, emportée par l’ampleur du trait de Cédric Fernandez (Saint-Exupéry) et sa science du dessin d’aviation.

    Histoire des Ducs de Bourgogne de la maison de Valois (Tome 4): Philippe le Bon (1432-1453) (Arremoludas) PDF Books

    Histoire des Ducs de Bourgogne de la maison de Valois (Tome 4): Philippe le Bon (1432-1453) (Arremoludas)

    Ainsi que le dit Brantôme : « Je crois qu’il ne fut jamais quatre plus grands ducs les uns après les autres, comme furent ces quatre ducs de Bourgogne ». Le premier, Philippe-le-Hardi, commença à établir la puissance bourguignonne et gouverna la France durant plus de vingt ans. Le second, Jean-sans-Peur, pour conserver sur le royaume le pouvoir qu’avait eu son père, commit un des crimes les plus éclatants de l’histoire moderne; par là il forma de sanglantes factions et alluma une guerre civile, la plus cruelle peut-être qui ait jamais souillé notre sol. Succombant sous un crime semblable, sa mort livra la France aux Anglais. Philippe-le-Bon, son successeur, se vit l’arbitre entre la France et l’Angleterre ; le sort de la monarchie sembla dépendre de lui. Son règne, long et prospère, s’est signalé par le faste et la majesté dont commença à s’investir le pouvoir souverain, et par la perte des libertés de la Flandre, de ce pays jusqu’alors le plus riche et le plus libre de l’Europe. Enfin le règne de Charles-le-Téméraire offre le spectacle continuel de sa lutte avec Louis XI, le triomphe de l’habileté sur la violence, le commencement d’une politique plus éclairée, et l’ambition mieux conseillée des princes, qui, devenus maîtres absolus de leurs sujets, font tourner au profit de leurs desseins les progrès nouveaux de la civilisation et du bon ordre. C’était un avantage que de rattacher de la sorte le récit de chaque époque à un grand personnage ; l’intérêt en devient plus direct et plus vif ; les événements se classent mieux ; c’est comme un fil conducteur qui guide à travers la foule confuse des faits... (extrait de la Préface, éd. de 1860).

    La présente réédition se base sur l’édition de 1860.

    Amable-Guillaume-Prosper Brugière, baron de Barante né à Riom (1782-1866), préfet sous le Ier Empire, pair de France sous la Restauration ; ses idées libérales le font écarter de la vie politique et l’amène à se consacrer à ses études historiques. Il publie la première édition de l’Histoire des Ducs de Bourgogne (1824-1826) qui lui vaut d’entrer à l’Académie Française. Après la Révolution de 1830, il sera nommé ambassadeur en Piémont-Sardaigne, puis en Russie jusqu’en 1848.
