This book, written by Ben Mezrich, is not a great book.
This book, written by Ben Mezrich, is not a great book. Bits and pieces read really good, and I especially enjoyed those moments when Mezrich describes a setting. This book is written in two styles. How this mixed-bag book inspired one of the best movies of 2010 is beyond me! Surly, the way this book was written, and not picturing The Social Network, I could see The CW make a mediocre made-for-TV movie off this book! Luckily, that didn't happen!

Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg were Harvard undergraduates and best friends–outsiders at a school filled with polished prep-school grads and long-time legacies. The Accidental Billionaires is a compulsively readable story of innocence lost–and of the unusual creation of a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people relate to one another. Ben Mezrich, a Harvard graduate, has published ten books, including the New York Times bestseller Bringing Down the House.

Accidental Billionaires's author Ben Mezrich explains how he put together the tawdry tale that has Silicon Valley buzzing. Mezrich, who was criticized for making up characters and scenes in his best-selling book "Bringing Down the House," uses a lengthy author's note to broadcast his reporting methodology. Some would call this fiction. But Doubleday has bravely labeled it nonfiction.

I didn't enjoy or finish The Accidental Billionaires, but this isn't Ben Mezrich's fault, as he's a good writer. The fact that Mark Zuckerberg refused all interviews with the author hobbled the book's credibility. This does make it an entertaining story, however, by turning Mark Zuckerberg and the others involved into characters.

Don’t you love it when you find a book which grips you from the offset and which you can’t put down? I had to speak out for a book which many of you would have heard about as a cinematic phenomenon The Social Network, again adapted from remarkable book into a movie which has received critical acclaim. The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich, who famously wrote Bringing Down the House, adapted into the fantastic movie 21 starring Kevin Spacey about a group of MIT students card counting and making some serious doe in Las Vegas, left me awestruck.
Ben Mezrich maintains that the book is not a work of fiction despite his narrative style of writing.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER“The Social Network, the much anticipated movie…adapted from Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires.” —The New York TimesBest 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 revolutionized communication around the world. With Saverin’s funding their 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 exuberance that marked their collaboration turned into out-and-out warfare as it fell prey to the adult world of venture capitalists, big money, and lawyers.
