Reviews

"A thoughtful, even-handed analysis of the Web site's impact. . . . "The Facebook Effect" leaves you with a deep understanding of Facebook, its philosophies and, most startlingly, its power."

--David Pogue, "The New York Times Book Review"
"Kirkpatrick's amazing reporting details what happens when a hacker culture turns into a multi-billion-dollar firm. Mark Zuckerberg sought to maintain that hacker energy, and it 's fascinating to read what resulted."

--Chris Anderson, editor of "Wired" and author of "The Long Tail"


""The Facebook Effect" is actually two books in one. One part is the exhaustively reported story of Facebook's founding and meteoric rise to near ubiquity; the other is a thoughtful analysis of its impact."

--Ethan Gilsdorf, "The Boston Globe"


"Fast-paced. . . . makes for gripping reading."

--G. Pascal Zachary, "The San Francisco Chronicle"


"Kirkpatrick's telling of the early days of Facebook is exciting. . . . His reporting skills are impressive."

--Rachel Metz, "Associated Press"


"Kirkpatrick tells a gripping tale of how the company was created and came to such dominance. As someone who followed the story almost from day one, I was still enlightened, entertained and sometimes dumbfounded by the rich detail and juicy goings-on."

-Don Tapscott, "The Globe and Mail" (Toronto)


"Kirkpatrick gives the reader a detailed understanding of how the company grew from a 2004 Harvard dorm-room project into the world's second-most-visited site after Google."

--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times "


"A fascinating book."

--Dan Fletcher, "Time "


"Engrossing. . . . A detailed and scrupulously fair history of [Facebook]."

--Rich Jaroslovsky, "Bloomberg Businessweek "
