"Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg – an awkward maths prodigy and a painfully shy computer genius – were never going to fit in at elite, polished Harvard. Yet that all changed when master-hacker Mark crashed the university’s entire computer system by creating a rateable database of female students. Narrowly escaping expulsion, the two misfits refocused the site into something less controversial – ‘The Facebook’ – and watched as it spread like a wildfire across campuses around the country, along with their popularity. Yet amidst the dizzying levels of cash and glamour, as silicon valley, venture capitalists and reams of girls beckoned, the first cracks in their friendship started to appear, and what began as a simple argument spiralled into an out-and-out war. The great irony is that Facebook succeeded by bringing people together – but its very success tore two best friends apart."

Mark Zuckerberg has been media-fodder for quite a while now. The new film on the creation of social-networking giant Facebook will quite likely imprint in viewers' minds, for a very long time, the idea of Mr Zuckerberg as a suave, fast-talking, ruthless genius. Of course, if you ever see his interviews, you'll know that he's quite the opposite, at least as far as the first two qualities go.
I read this book with the hope that it would illuminate the life and personality of the real Mark Zuckerberg. I was rather disappointed. Before you buy the book, you should know that Mr Zuckerberg declined to speak to the author, and the author has written the book almost entirely with inputs from Eduardo Saverin, Zuckerberg's former friend and the co-creator of Facebook. Furthermore, the book is written in novel format rather than the conventional biography, so expect penny-dreadful like twists and turns.
The book is only about 250 pages long, and is printed in large, disturbingly childish print. Try as I might, I could not bring myself to take the book seriously. I suppose that one shall have to wait for a more definitive biography or autobiography (should Zuckerberg ever come out of his reticence and agree to tell his story). Until then, I recommend staying away from this one, or, if you're really curious, borrowing it from your local library.
the whole story is good and very inspiring, it makes people think to achieve something when they are young and the inspiration it gives is long lasting, too. only thing is the narration is not upto my expectations.
Good book. This was my first purchase from Flipkart. The delivery was made within 2 days of placing order. It was well covered.
On the book, I would say that it is bloody inspiring for someone interested in computers and all. This Zuckerberg fellow seems to come out of the book into real life.... the author has portrayed the characters quite well!!!
A good buy overall!!!
slightly overpriced.the first half was really exciting ,but the second half was pretty dull.extraordinay story of a man who rules the social world of millions of people.fast paced.read it in one go.
