What is Accidental Billionaires?
The New York Times stated "The Accidental Billionaires is so obviously dramatized, and so clearly unreliable, that there’s no mistaking it for a serious document." They also mention that Mezrich had no access to Mark Zuckerberg when writing the book. 1 They were not the only review with this opinion.2 The primary source for the book was Eduardo Sevrin, a cofounder of Facebook who Zuckerberg later dropped.3 Mezrich acknowledges that some of his writing is fictional, but doesn't clearly separate fact from fiction in his book. 4
