    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Story

    First off...I'm a guy. I feel I have to say that so I don't lose too many man-points for listening to this book. I don't know much about Sheryl Sandberg and I may not agree with all of her points, but I'd recommend this book to anyone. It's a great listen. While it may seem like this topic should only be interesting to women, her approach and examples go well beyond that. The book may be framed around women's issues in the workplace, but I found the discussion about family issues to be equally as important, in particular, the balance between genders, families, stereotypes and careers. I'm sure Sheryl will take heat from both men and women by writing this book, however I can't help but think the world is now a slightly better place simply because she did. Five stars.

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"
    "Fast paced, entertaining"

    Where does Kill Decision rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Having listened Daemon and Freedom TM, I wasn't sure if Suarez could live up but his technical detail and movie-like pacing make this a worthwhile listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kill Decision?

    The insect swarm science was very interesting, especially during the safe house chapter.


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    Excellent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Win, lose or drone.
