    About the Book

    Best friends Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg had spent many lonely nights looking for a way to stand out among Harvard University's elite, comptetitive, and accomplished student body. Then, in 2003, Zuckerberg hacked into Harvard's computers, crashed the campus network, almost got himself expelled, and was inspired to create Facebook, the social networking site that has since revolutionized communication around the world.

    "Mezrich's prose has a cinematic flavor."
    --The Boston Globe

    "You won't be able to put the book down. The story's far too compelling, and entirely too personal, to toss aside."
    --The Oregonian
