Is Mark Zuckerberg Reading David Beckham's Autobiography?

Chinese state media has published a photograph of Mark Zuckerberg’s desk at Facebook HQ, and there are two rather interesting things sitting on it.

First off, you can clearly see a copy of a book written by the President of China sitting on Zuckerberg’s desk. That was likely strategically placed because he was being visited by Lu Wei, China’s top internet regulator.

CNN producer Ravi Hiranand spotted that buried underneath another pile of books is what appears to be a copy of English footballer David Beckham’s autobiography.
