4.0 out of 5 stars A well written account, 12 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Facebook Effect: The Real Inside Story of Mark Zuckerberg and the World's Fastest Growing Company (Paperback)
A received this book within a couple days of ordering it and i found it an excellent read so far. I'm not a keeno reader but I managed to get through about 70 pages in one evening, so its great for those who have found a niche that they enjoy to read. The book does have very similar/disimilar references to The Social Network but with some obvious additions that don't bore you down with the details.

However, this book is not a quick read and if you are after those type of books then I suggest opting for 'Screw it Lets do it - Richard Branson'. From the first section it is a well balanced booked that doesn't get you into the emotions of each member of facebook but rather where they stood and what they brought to the team hence this book is focused on facebook corporation not Mark Z, etc. (I think it will be abit Premiership-football-player like to release a biograph at the mere age of 27! ha)

A potential downfall, not at fault of the author, is that facebook does not know what is yet and is has clearly not matured/declined. Therefore I predict the final parts of the book will be filled with open ended questions resulting in you begging to read the sequel - The rise & fall of Facebook.

But out of all books on fast growing & influential companies of the last 10 yrs, from what i expect this should be in your top 10.
