From GQ's "Nerd of the Year" to one of Time's most influential people in the world, Biz Stone represents different things to different people. But he is known to all as the creative, effervescent, funny, charmingly positive and remarkably savvy co-founder of Twitter - the social media platform that singlehandedly changed the way the world works. Now, Biz tells fascinating, pivotal, and personal stories from his early life and his careers at Google and Twitter, sharing his knowledge about the nature and importance of ingenuity today. In Biz's world:
Opportunity can be manufactured
Great work comes from abandoning a linear way of thinking
Creativity never runs out
Asking questions is free
Empathy is core to personal and global success
In this book, Biz also addresses failure, the value of vulnerability, ambition, and corporate culture. Whether seeking behind-the-scenes stories, advice, or wisdom and principles from one of the most successful businessmen of the new century, Things a Little Bird Told Me will satisfy every listener.

Not as good as 'Hatching 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.

A Great insight into a unique mind
I really enjoyed getting to know Biz through this book. I thought the pairing of the reader and Biz's personality was ideal.
