ABOUT THE BOOK

Mark Zuckerberg is one of the worlds youngest billionaires, thanks to his role in co-founding social networking site, Facebook. As Facebook has grown exponentially since its founding in 2004 (with 845 million monthly active users as of the end of December 2011 according to Facebook), Zuckerbergs popularity has also flown through the roof.

Interesting on so many levels, Zuckerbergs quick rise to fame is one that the mass media and general public just cant get enough of. Theres his Harvard education, his invention of one of the most popular Internet sites this world has ever seen, his incredible net worth, and, of course, a few public legal scandals along the way - and hes only reached 27 years of age. Hes also one of the top Wikipedia searches due to the 2010 release of movie, The Social Network, based on his life and his legal battles surrounding Facebook.

He turned both of the offers down.

Instead of selling out, Zuckerberg decided hed expand his knowledge and attend Harvard University in 2002. At Harvard, he studied computer science and joined a Jewish fraternity. He wasnt too popular, although he did have a few good friends who would later continue to play a role in his technological endeavors. It was during his sophomore year at Harvard, in his dorm room, that Zuckerberg created Facebook. At the end of his sophomore year, he quit Harvard to run the site...
