Mark Zuckerberg, the sometime controversial founder of the hugely popular social network Facebook, was worth an estimated $4 billion by the time he was 25. Now almost 30-something, he is one of the world’s wealthiest people and worth somewhere around $20 billion. A college dropout, he is also one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world.
His story is an unlikely one, and it is filled with suspense and intrigue. He has been accused of being a liar, a cheat, a fraudster, and of stealing other people’s ideas. While he has never been convicted of any of these charges, he had, in the few short years of becoming a billionaire, already paid out millions of US dollars to compensate his accusers and keep them at bay.
