Story is very interesting. Bamford has access to info / insights that are rare for an outsider of the Intel community (hmmm) and this book is put together fairly well.
The reader constantly mispronounces company names (like pronouncing Booz in Booz Allen like Bozo vs. Booze) also says some technical acronyms/terms in ways that are just off. Those things happened more than a handful of times and takes away from his overall decent performance.
I really enjoyed the content of this book. Facebook's creation and rise is an intriguing story and David captures a lot of it very well. I had seen the movie "The Social Network" and this book presents a far more comprehensive and less dramatized view of the company.
I think those interested in FB's creation, entrepreneurs, and general lovers of business would probably enjoy this book. Very interesting to follow the technical and business decisions... it took a lot of courage not to sell.
My only "dislike" is I thought they could have done better editing the audio. Every reader is going to take breaths at pauses and ends of sentences but the listener doesn't need to hear him inhaling or wetting his lips/tongue. A good audio editor would remove those gaps/noises.
