McNaughton Collection - Featured Book


The McNaughton Collection is a great source of popular best-selling books. Speaking of popular items, I know almost all of you have a Facebook account. With 500 million users, its popularity speaks through the numbers. “The Facebook Effect” by David Kirkpatrick is a book which tells the “inside story” of Facebook, its creation, its successes, and its future. David Kirkpatrick worked closely with the executives of Facebook, including creator Mark Zuckerberg, to produce a best-selling book.

Mark Zuckerberg, a student at Harvard Law School, first created Facebook.com as an extracurricular activity. Using the website, Zuckerberg incorporated a printed campus directory complete with the names and photographs of all freshmen students. Meanwhile, Harvard was doing the same thing. However, in Zuckerberg's version, students were allowed to add their own information about themselves. The new online directory grew rapidly until it was available to everyone with an email address, making Zuckerberg a millionaire.

David Kirkpatrick opens a door to the background and evolution of Facebook, told from Mark Zuckerberg’s perspective. The book will leave you with knowledge and awareness of Facebook’s high demand and power in this day and age. Don’t you want to know more about the most popular social networking site in the world?
