Call him a nerd or an 'Alpha Geek' but Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, is the world's youngest billionaire and in charge of one of the most successful companies in the world. Was it just luck and good timing or is Zuckerberg a new type of visionary leader with the keys to business success in the our fast-moving digital world? The Mark Zuckerberg most people know is the one depicted in Academy Award-winning film The Social Network: a nerdy, insecure and socially awkward young man - hardly the image of a top-flight CEO in command of one of the world's largest and most successful companies. Facebook's rapid growth is a huge achievement, when you consider Zuckerberg had never managed a business or raised investor funds before. At the helm of Facebook, Zuckerberg not only has to run fast to maintain the social media company's high profile success, but also needs to fight to stay ahead of some of the richest, most talented and most aggressive companies in the world. Billionaire Boy - Mark Zuckerberg in His Own Words is a collection of quotations taken from interviews, presentations, media announcements and more. We see a new breed of business leader with a new way of thinking about business and success in a constantly changing world.
