Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s official resolution for 2015 is to read a new book every other week for the entire year.
Hundreds of thousands of Facebook users will follow along with his progress, which he’ll share on a page he created just for the project.
But it turns out that Naím, former executive director of the World Bank and current fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, had no idea that his two-year-old book was going to get a boost from the Facebook CEO. He’s never even met Zuckerberg.
“I had no clue that this was going to happen,” Naím told Bloomberg’s Sarah Frier. “It’s gratifying and energizing and a great thing for an author.”
Delighted to see that audiobook of The End of Power is the #1 non-fiction bestseller in the iTunes store! Thank you Mark Zuckerberg.
