Mark Zuckerberg from The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook: A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal is the main character in this book. It chronicles his rise to fame and fortune as the creator of Facebook. Apparently, Mark was already something of a hotshot computer guru even in highschool as microsoft attempted to hire him after highschool. He turned them down to go to college. There he met his friend, Saverin, who would help him co-found Facebook. 

He definitely is depicted as walking to his own inner beat, choosing to dress in the same clothes every day, regardless of the weather. He also played fast and loose with the competition, agreeing to work with The Harvard Connection on their own social media site, only to stall them so that he could finish his own social media site. Later, the founders of The Harvard Connection would sue and win nearly 65 million dollars. When he later teamed up with Sean Parker (Napster), he dumped Saverin, but when Parker was arrested, he disconnected himself from Parker, too. He is credited for being the youngest self made millionaire today.
