'Mum's the Word: The High-Flying Adventures of Eve Branson' is Released
Eve Branson is not the average mother of a billionaire CEO.
In "Mum's the Word," her memoir based on decades of diary entries, Branson chronicles her trailblazing, spirited exploits and divulges many unorthodox, yet effective secrets behind raising one of the world's most colorful billionaires.
Whether disguising herself as a boy to take flying lessons during wartime or almost disappearing in the Bermuda triangle as an air hostess, the escapades chronicled in "Mum's the Word" bares Branson's fearless, take-no-prisoners nature.
Not one to rest on her laurels after marrying and raising three children, she also highlights her entrepreneurial pursuits, philanthropic work and extensive travel following her son on his highly publicized attempts to break world records in ballooning, sailing and other adventures.
"My life has been eventful and adventurous since I was young, and I continued living vicariously through my son, Richard," Branson said.
Ever the pioneer, Branson will soon embark on a new frontier as she prepares to launch the first commercial space travelers to the edge of space in a Virgin Galactic mother ship that bears her name.
