This is a dense book that probably won't encourage reluctant readers, but would serve an advanced reader well in providing information for research assignments.

This book can be featured in the library as a source for research papers/projects along with other books that cover ethically questionable business practices in the early 2000's.

Written in simple language, Stealing MySpace describes the backgrounds of the MySpace creators, the dot-com boom (and bust), the growth of technology, and the birth of MySpace. Although there is some technical and business-related terminology in Stealing MySpace, readers will comprehend the message. For those of us who use MySpace (and other social networking sites), this is a great insight to the background of how these sites become popular. I recommend this book for anybody who has a MySpace, anybody who wants to learn a little "computer talk" or a bibliophile. ( )
