I advised him against it. If you're not inspired and informed by this book, then you haven't read it. Stephen Colbert Biz Stone's anything-but-ordinary journey both surprises and inspires.

Ron Howard I'm thrilled that readers of Things A Little Bird Told Me can now draw inspiration from his value and vision. A must-read for anyone who wants to tap their creative potential. Charles Best, Founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org Most tales of start-up success revolve around a lone genius out-manoeuvring the competition.
