Product description

Review

""The Boy Kings" needs a place on your summer reading list. Losse made me think twice about how I socialize with people, and how exactly that came to be--and it just might encourage you to hop offline and appreciate non-virtual reality." "--Glamour
"

In her dark, hypnotic memoir of working at Facebook during its rising years, Katherine Losse tests Mark Zuckerberg s dogmatic belief in transparency s inherent good by removing the privacy controls on his own life. The result is a reluctantly Machiavellian guidebook to Silicon Valley and a strong endorsement for maintaining a separate social life rather than a fully public pics or it didn t happen one." --"The Daily"
