So, I read a new book. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, with all these piles of books laying around here.

But, actually, this is one I just stumbled upon Monday afternoon and picked up just to glance through at about 6:00 that evening and did not put down until I read the last page at 1:30 am. So much more than I expected!

I don’t really know how to describe it other than…. well… yeah, I really don’t know how to describe it. He talks about everything from architecture and art museums to cease fires and Hubble telescopes. Extravagent construction of private islands to inventors such as (my most favorite EVER) Willis Carrier. ♥  And then some.

And somehow, he cleverly weaves all of this together in this one little book about the phenomenon that we know as ‘facebook’. He talks about the developer of this break-through internet social network and our basic human behavior, further explaining why it’s become such a seemingly overnight sensation and why it will probably continue to flourish.

Sooooo… all of this to say…. you’ve got to pick up a copy of “The Church of Facebook®”. You won’t be sorry.

And if you need Jesse himself to promote it, here ya go:

And please, whatever you do, promise me that you won’t miss the footnotes! They’re the icing on the cake.
