The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook by Ben Mezrich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Facebook is something most of us use and many of us barely remember a world before. I had read the story behind the founding of Twitter and enjoyed it, so picked up Ben Mezrich's retelling of the start of Facebook, hoping for more entertaining reading. I was not disappointed.
Not only does this read like a soap opera (and it's been made into a movie too), but it's a super quick, well written founder story that you won't want to put down. Really interesting view of how Facebook started, its other founders no one knows about, and what it took for it to become the platform that revolutionized how we socially interact.
Definitely recommend it, whether you usually read business books or not.
