Editorial Reviews

Review

He says he was actually the one who created the original college social networking system, before either side in the legal dispute. And he has the e-mail messages to show it... College classmates describe Mr. Greenspan as extremely bright and an unusually productive software designer... Mr. Greenspan remains extraordinarily energetic and envisions ideas for new projects. --The New York Times

'Authoritas' offers a very vivid view of a person, an institution, an educational culture, and a moment in echnological-economic history created by the internet. I bet that most people who start reading the book will, as I did, keep right on going out of fascination to see how it turns out. --James Fallows, National Correspondent, The Atlantic Monthly

Full of passages the Facebook founder would rather you not read. --Nicholas Carlson, Associate Editor, Valleywag
