SNJ: T-1890: “23 Books Mark Zuckerberg Thinks Everyone Should Read” #SmitaNairJain
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made his way through a thick stack of books in 2015.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a singular mission: to connect people around the world.
It’s one reason why he decided to launch a Facebook-based book club last year, with a reading list that focused on “different cultures, beliefs, histories, and technologies.”
Although the birth of his daughter Max kept him from hitting his goal of a book every two weeks, he ended the year with 23 selections in his “A Year of Books” reading group
We’ve put together a list of his picks and why he thinks everyone should read them.
