Recommended to Valerie by: Social Network
Read from February 10 to 11, 2011 — I own a copy

I don't usually say this, but if you have seen The Social Network, you might not need to read this. Not that it isn't good, it is. I've liked all of his books about smarter-than-thou college students, and this one is no exception. But the screenwriters for the movie added the wonderful dialogue, while staying so very true to the book. And there was no information in the book, that had not been presented in the movie. I am, in general, pro-Facebook, and pro-obsessive nerdery, however, I've read enough Greek mythology to know that if something seems to good to be true, it probably is. Therefore, this addition to Geek mythology, shouldn't really surprise anyone.

And now to post this review on Facebook...
