eBook of the Week

I saw The Social Network when it first came out and watched it again on TV this past week.  It’s a great film based on this national bestselling book:

The Accidental Billionaires: the Founding of Facebook: a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal

by Ben Mezrich

Accidental billionaires
“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, lawyers.”

We also have a print copy of The Accidental Billionaires.   Check them out!
