The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook: A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, by Ben Mezrich

Recommended by Jeff in Technical Services…

Jeff’s synopsis:
Almost everyone is familiar with Facebook which started in 2004. Currently, it has over 600 million users all over the world. This is the story of how two Harvard undergrads, Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg, started one of the biggest social network sites on the internet.

He says:
This is a good story of two friends creating something for fun and the course it takes when they decide to make it a “business”. The movie,  The Social Network is based on this book and is also worth watching.
