Book Review: The Making of the Greatest Mark Zuckerberg by Abha Sharma

The Making of the Greatest Mark Zuckerberg
Author: Abha Sharma
Publisher: Rupa Publishers
Rating: 3/5

It is said that youth is not an age but just a state of mind. As long as you are fearless, adventurous and confident, you will remain young. A perfect example of this is Mark Zuckerberg, who, at the age of 20 years, launched one of the fastest growing social networking sites in the world. Who knew that this brilliant kid would one-day aid in bringing people together?

It would be wrong to judge Zuckerberg’s life as a smooth one, for he has had his share of woes and weal. Frequently identified as one of the potential targets of controversies, Zuckerberg was no different in college either. Busted for creating a ‘rating’ website for his dorm mates, he still went on to develop a full-fledged version based on a similar concept, thereby giving birth to Facebook. Had it not been for this programming prodigy, we wouldn’t have found our friends and family just a click away! However, Zuckerberg has often dodged a bullet because of his self-deprecating nature.

The Making of the Greatest Mark Zuckerberg’ is a fine attempt by Abha Sharma to share the life of one of the most favourite role models for youngsters in a limited number of pages. The book is more like a Wikipedia page that offers only the information that is the most relevant. Skipping the minute details, this book is a fast-paced biography that is well suited for the likes of fiction readers.

Overall, as thin as it might seem, this book narrates the story of grit, determination and the will to do something in life.

Best wishes to the author!
