Professional reviews

"This is the breezily written story of how an Internet genius founded Twitter and other game-changing communication tools by massaging his rebellious attitudes, thinking big, and learning to respect and empathize with others. Jonathan DavisÕs easy reading, full of emotional liveliness, makes this book sound like an off-the-cuff talk with many entertaining asides. His in-the-moment performance gives this book joie de vivre and imbues the authorÕs character with engaging humanity. StoneÕs rags-to-riches saga is dotted with memorable aphorisms that came to him as he grew personally, overcame obstacles, and learned to channel his creative energy. This inspiring listening experience should be essential listening for anyone struggling to do some good in the world with creative ideas. T.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
