There is a book in your heart…

There is a book in your heart…

That was the topic of my presentation at the recently concluded #140Conf at NYC.

It was also the day when my new book was released. The new book is titled:


140 bite-sized lessons for a fast paced world.

The entire book was written on Twitter. This is probably the first published book that was entirely written on Twitter.

I am fortunate to have Guy Kawasaki (@guykawasaki) to write the foreword for the book. I am also thankful to all the wonderful people who provided advance praise for the book. You can also read the early reviews of the book here:

TH!NKTweet: Early Reviews

I am also thankful to my friends Karine and Francis from StresslimitDesign for designing the book and my partner Mitchell Levy for publishing it.

More on the series coming soon.

Review Copies: If you are interested in getting a review copy (e-version) please contact me via email and mention where you are “intending to review” the book. I will get one sent out asap.

If you want to get the background of how it all started, please watch my talk at the #140Conf below:

Congrats on this Rajesh! – wonderful talk.

Awesome, Rajesh.

I like the idea of turning into a book. I heard you saying that you started twittering (or tweeting?) for only past 4 or 5 months, I believe, you had started way before in the form of mini-sagas. Though they were of (=) 50 words, and at times it would exceed 140 characters, but the same concept. I think you had started sagas (saga-ing ?) even before twitter came into picture or around the same time in Mid 2006.

– just my observation :)

Thank you Paul and Ram.

Ram, yes you are so right in your observation. The difference between mini sagas and #TH!NKtweets is the immediate feedback you get on Twitter as compared to what I get on the mini sagas.

Thanks again and have a great week ahead.

Hi Raj – Thanks for sharing that wonderful talk. I have read this book indirectly via your Twitter stream. I was fascinated by idea of establishing thought leadership and how it can impact your business. I think best gift we can give to others is the gift of ideas – such books just do that.
