Janet MaslinThere's at least one story that has never been told on the no-holds-barred social networking Web site MySpace. That story is the chaotic, action-packed history of MySpace itself. Now Julia Angwin…has done prodigious digging into the shady business practices, trailer-park aesthetics, lucky accidents and borderline personality types that have allowed MySpace to tap into the American psyche. Her account is necessarily convoluted. But like the site itself, Ms. Angwin's book…is accessible to anyone, except during its most intensive dissections of deal-making. Overall, you needn't know a portal from a platform to follow this sprawling, rollicking Internet history.
