Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg surely hasn’t lowered his goals and expectations for this new year, as he has definitely chosen some pretty ambitious New Year’s resolutions, fairly comparable with the ones in his past, which included vowing to learn Mandarin and to eat only meat he killed himself.
This year, one of his most ambitious resolutions is to read a new book every other week for the entire year. With that being said, he has created a Facebook page on which he’ll share the book he’s reading so others can follow along. His first pick; “The End of Power,” an interesting political study by the scholar Moisés Naím.
The book is a study of how the meaning of leadership, be it in business, politics or even religion, has undergone a huge change over the past century. Naím means that the distribution of power is steadily shifting; as it is shown, small startups have more frequently proven that they can conquer large corporations, CEOs have shorter tenures than ever before and more than half of the world’s nations are democracies.
Yes, “The End of Power” has been gaining so much traction through Zuckerberg’s interactive Facebook page that it is out of stock on Amazon. Thankfully there are other outlets you can buy the book from such as at Barnes & Noble or online as an e-book. Today, almost 170,000 people have “liked” the page for the book club.
