Book 7 - The Accidental Billionaires
My seventh book was The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich. This is a book about the founding of Facebook (the book "The Social Network" was based on). It's non-fiction, but it's the coolest non-fiction book you'll ever read. It keeps your interest the entire time, almost written like a movie. Mark Zuckerberg develops Facebook in his dorm room and, with his best friend Eduardo Saverin, makes it the huge success that it is today. But, even though they were best friends, Mark cut Eduardo out of the company, causing Eduardo to sue. Unlike the movie, the book is in chronological order, instead of the characters telling the story in court. Overall, it is one of the best books I've ever read and a new favorite.
