NATIONAL BESTSELLER "The Social Network, the much anticipated moviehellip;adapted from Ben Mezrichrs"s bookThe Accidental Billionaires." -The New York Times Best friends Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg had spent many lonely nights looking for a way to stand out among Harvard Universityrs"s elite, comptetitive, and accomplished student body. Then, in 2003, Zuckerberg hacked into Harvardrs"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 Saverinrs"s funding their tiny start-up went from dorm room to Silicon Valley. But conflicting ideas about Facebookrs"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, lawyers.
