Now a major motion picture! Best friends Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg had spent many lonely nights looking for a way to stand out among Harvard University's elite, competitive, 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 revolutionzied communications around the world. With Saverin's funding, theire tiny start-up went from dorm room to Silicon Valley. But conflicting ideas about Facebook's future transformed the friends into enemies. Soon, the undergraduate exuberansce that marked their collaboration turned into out-and-out warfare, as it fell prey to the adult world of venture capitalists, bihg money, lawyers. Nevertheless, who out there isn't on Facebook? There's been nothing like it to capture the cyber-imagination since...the laptop! It's huge! And the story of its coming-into-being ought to be riveting to more than one generation. See the book; read the movie!
