This became rather dry, and I soon yearned forquotations from the man himself you only learn at the end that he d no interest in helping the author write the book It is thought provoking for a business book, and makes you wonder if you could survive the burning intensity and obsession that drives this man Working with Lactalis, you d give your eye teeth to see someone in our business operate with one hundredth of the vision and direction this guy built Ryanair with It s quite obvious that he s a one off, an eccentric and driven by something beyond explanation, even his own explanation Not as good as the previous Ryanair book I read, and I was surprised I got through over 400 pages to the end of it. Entertaining to read, but after hundreds of pages only about Ryanair it gets a little bit boring I expectedinformation about O Leary s life I think it s a great book to read only if you are a really big fan of Ryanair and the whole aviation business Otherwise kinda boring. Interesting read however it is very similar to the Ryanair book and focuses a loton the development of Ryanair than MO L himself I suppose this is understandable as his life is pretty much consumed by Ryanair There are many humorous parts to the book which perfectly highlight his personality Undoubtedly he is a fantastic businessman and has revolutionized the European Airline industry. Very interesting story yes O Leary can come across as a bit of a twat but I think he s a legend Great businessman, did amazing things for Ireland aviation in general No matter how you may feel about the airline s policies and way of doing business, he has done a remarkable job turning this unknown leasing company into a market leader and helped make air travel accessible to the average person.
