Format: Hardcover
This book is extremely well written. Nick talks about the specific environments when everything happened. Nick talks about the feelings rushing through people's minds. Nick explains the whole Twitter founding story in excruciating details. I won't go into too much details about the book but I did write a longer more descriptive review here: [...]

Well,written and compulsively researched with inside stories galore, Bilton's through the looking glass look at Twitter demonstrates that techies are no better than politicians and straight company execs at infighting and cutthroat behavior. It's hard to believe that Jack Dorsey triumphed, and that idealism was soon besmirched at a company one would hope to,emulate due to its news and world--changing role. As for Dorsey's parroting, and channeling Steve Jobs, one can only paraphrase the famous comment about Dan Quayle and JFK: Jack, you ain't no Steve Jobs. one does get to know these lonely people and not to like many of them. It makes you wish Ev Williams well, and Biz Stone, too. It also makes you appreciate Twitter even more. A worthwhile but maybe not a must read.

This book leaves you sad and exhilarated at the same time. You see how ordinary the intentions and actions of some of the people are and how admirable and inspiring some of the other actors are in this story. A book I could not put down.

A completely riveting and enlightening read. Nick Bilton has outdone himself with this book; he highlights the ugliness of corporate politics behind this revolutionary company.
