“The Social Network, the much anticipated movie…adapted from Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires.” —The New York Times
Best friends Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg had spent many lonely nights looking for a way to stand out among Harvard University’s elite, competitive, and accomplished student body. Then, in 2003, Zuckerberg hacked into Harvard’s computers, crashed the campus network, almost got himself expelled, and was inspired to create Facebook, the social networking site that has since revolutionized communication around the world.
With Saverin’s funding their tiny start-up went from dorm room to Silicon Valley. But conflicting ideas about Facebook’s future transformed the friends into enemies. Soon, the undergraduate exuberance that marked their collaboration turned into out-and-out warfare as it fell prey to the adult world of venture capitalists, big money, and lawyers.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Better than social network
Better than the movie, fills in alot of gaps
Decent book, Entertaining, really gets the wheels turning.
Great job once again, Mr. Mezrich
If you enjoyed the movie, "The Social Network," you will surely enjoy this book. Ben Mezrich's genre of "faction" (true stories with embellished facts and hints of fiction) is truly enjoyable. "The Accidental Billionaires" is a page-turner and will leave you wanting more. I highly recommend this book, as well as Mezrich's other best-sellers, "Bringing Down the House", "Ugly Americans", "Rigged", and "Busting Vegas".
