This book is a fascinating look at the growth of a phenomenon and important insight into the motivations and plans of its founders. If you're interested in Facebook and the future of marketing and the internet, buy it.
I would rather Kirkpatrick had maintained more detachment from his subjects. I couldn't even listen to the bonus feature because he was too clearly in awe of Zuckerberg and co.
Also, I would have appreciated it if he, as narrator, had checked pronunciations rather than assuming he could tackle, for instance, Leicester, Bournemouth and Brunei without help. Instead his mangling of places he hasn't been made an excellent journalist sound foolish.
However, as the four-star rating shows, these are minor criticisms of what is a valuable read.
