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

NATIONAL BESTSELLER NOWA MAJOR MOTION PICTURE, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Rashida Jones; directed by David Fincher Exuberant and revealing,The Accidental Billionairesis a fast-paced, inside look at a story of fortune gained and innocence lost, and how a company that was created to bring people together ultimately tore two friends apart. In 2003, Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg were Harvard undergrads and best friends looking for a way to stand out among the universityrsquo;s elite and competitive student body. Then one lonely night, Zuckerberg hacked into the campus computer system to pull off a prank that crashed Harvardrsquo;s network. This stunt almost got him expelled, but it also inspired Zuckerberg to create Facebook, the social networking site that has since revolutionized how people around the world communicate. With Saverins funding their small start-up quickly went from their college dorm room to Silicon Valley. But different ideas about Facebookrsquo;s future tested Zuckerberg and Saverins relationship, which then spiraled into out-and-out warfare. Soon, the collegiate exuberance that marked their collaboration fell prey to the adult world of venture capitalists, lawyers, and big money.
