    Story
    (200)

    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"
    "Entertaining and Facinating"
    Overall

    I can't believe the negitive reviews. This book is great. I loved learning about the founders of Facebook and enjoyed how the author made it a story, not a documentary.

    Story
    (39)

    For 10 years, Louis Theroux has been making programmes about off-beat characters on the fringes of US society. Now he revisits America and the people who have most fascinated him to try to discover what motivates them, why they believe the things they believe, and to find out what has happened to them since he last saw them.

    I'm disappointed this book was a bit short. However, Louis is an excellent author and reader. He expertly gives each character a unique voice. The stories are facinating, but for adults only. I highly recommend.

    Story
    (519)

    In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself.

    Craig Mitchell says: "A Book that Never Left Me"
    "Awesome!"
    Overall

    A great adaptation of the book. The reader's performance is A+. The story is expanded far beyond the movie (of course) to include the Author's experience as a climber in Alaska in his 20's as well as short biographies of several other Alaska wilderness explorers. I highly recommend.

    A very important book, IMHO for any young man.
