The Facebook Effect by David Kirkpatrick

A very enjoyable book. Illustrates the history of the company from the beginning to the end. This book is all about facebook and how it has grown into a multi billion dollar company.

I really was able to learn a bit more than I knew (and I didn’t know much) about social networking from this book. I recommend this book highly to anyone in the web industry.

This book makes me want to try it maybe on a part time basis.
