I really enjoyed getting to know Biz through this book. I thought the pairing of the reader and Biz's personality was ideal.
Biz Stone played an important role in the creation of twitter. This book offers his perspectve on events that took place and also give you more interesting details about him and where he comes from. It's a truly inspirational narrative to young entrepreneurs with ambitious goals.

Looking back, I can actually "see" the creation of twitter and the personality and growth of its founders. Biz did an incredible job of writing the story in such a way that you feel like you're there, growing with the team.
I think Biz was my favorite character because he's so logical, easy going, and straight forward. In a sea of extreme personalities, Biz was the most centered.
At the same time, Jack Dorsey was interesting, but not as easy to like.
Watching Jack Dorsey's transformation from Geeky Punk Kid to extremely successful Steve Jobs wannabe was incredibly interesting.
Listening to this book is like uploading yourself into the making of Twitter.
I would recommend this book, but only if the person had read 'Hatching Twitter' first. This book is much less detailed about the founding of Twitter.
I have not listened to other Biz Stone books, but I found him to be a touch of an ego-maniac. I have never heard the word "I" used so many times. Stone really wants the reader to know exactly what he thinks he's responsible for at Twitter.
