"Regardless of where you stand on the issue, you'll want to see why one of Facebook's biggest champions became one of its fiercest critics." — Business Insider

"A candid and highly entertaining explanation of how and why a man who spent decades picking tech winners and cheering his industry on has been carried to the shore of social activism."— New York Times Book Review

"A timely reckoning with Facebook's growth and data-obsessed culture. . . [Zucked] is the first narrative tale of Facebook's unravelling over the past two years . . . McNamee excels at grounding Facebook in the historical context of the technology industry." — Financial Times
