I was at one time tempted to buy the book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook: A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal, by Ben Mezrich. I was also tempted to go see the movie Social Networks, which is playing now and is based on that book. Then I read Orson Scott Card’s review, and I am glad I spent no time or money on either. Now I am shamelessly posting a link to Card’s review here.
I enjoy browsing Card’s blog and I always find morsels. There is only one thing about his format that drives me crazy: He does several subjects in one entry and I can’t figure out why he would do that. Perhaps he does it to get me to read topics that I would otherwise not click on? So, be warned, when you click on the link below, you have to scroll down to the second article to read the review of Mezrich’s apparently inept book.
