Overview

The Facebook Book, by Harvard alums and early Booksters Atwan and Lushing, follows in the fine satirical tradition of The Official Preppy Handbook and The Hipster Handbook, full of anecdotes (true and semi-true), tips (useful and useless), and other insights, including chapters on the Ethics and Etiquette of using the 'Book, what your profile really says about you, and a Facebook dictionary (which defines for the uninitiated terms like "frenemey" and "fauxmance"). The Facebook Book will appeal not only to undergrads, but also high schoolers (to whom the site was recently opened), savvy parents, and anyone who's tapped into Web 2.0 culture and counterculture.

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!).
