    The high-energy tale of how two socially awkward Ivy Leaguers, trying to increase their chances with the opposite sex, ended up creating Facebook. The Accidental Billionaires is a compulsively readable story of innocence lost, and of the unusual creation of a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people relate to one another.

    Charles E. Grant says: "Infotainment, poorly written"

    Overall

    I was really looking forward to this book but ended up very frustrated and disappointed. Saying it's needlessly wordy is a gross understatement. When the author actually got around to telling the story and not pontificating about what a room looked like, it was actually not bad. Unfortunately, those "not bad" moments were so rare that it just wasn't worth my while. I actually yelled "SHUT UP!" several times during the reading. Sad.
