Doesn't do what it says on the cover,
This review is from: The Stories of Facebook, YouTube & MySpace: The people, the hype and the deals behind the giants of WEB 2.0 (Hardcover)I bought this book thinking I would get an insight into the three companies mentioned on the cover...namely Facebook, Myspace and YouTube. Having already read 'The Accidental Billionaires', the story of Facebook, I was more interested in reading about YouTube and Myspace and as I didn't know much about how these companies were created.
To my immense disappointment, the amount of text on these two companies found in this book wouldn't even fit onto one page...literally. That is no exaggeration, there isn't a chapter about them, there isn't anything. Only Facebook gets a single chapter for itself, which skims the surface.
The book should actually be called "What happened to the people who made PayPal after they left", because actually that is the majority of what this book is about. If you want to know about that, then by it and you will be well informed. If you want to know about Facebook, Myspace and YouTube, buy something else.
