Read: The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich
On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history. But, for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. "The Social Network" proves that you don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.
