    A reviewer

    Typical of a book written by Harvard Lampoon alumni, The Facebook Book is very witty, funny, and makes use of all manner of cultural references, from Horace to TMZ.com. However, unlike many Lampoon-esque works, it manages to be very very funny, hysterically so at points. You'll definitely notice that this book is written by two very well-educated men, but you'll be laughing the whole way, even if you don't get half the jokes (I was left scratching my head more than a few times!).
