The inexorable logic and analysis, as well as sheer human courage, that leads to thwarting a terrorist threat.
My favorite scene was the one where Tor Pavlov defeats and intelligent laser with the assistance of her AI "son", then tells him she's proud to have him as her partner. This scene sums up the book's intertwining of large concepts with human minutia.
What if at first contact, the others say "have I got a deal for you ..."?
The narration by the three voices was awesome - it really helped keep the intricate story lines and personalities straight. Great job, all!
Eric Ries' reading of his own book is very clear, very compelling, and well-paced. The material he presents is very relevant to those in today's fast-moving startup environment, as well as those internal entrepreneurs that are fortunate enough to be working with the support of a larger organization. The primary thesis of the book, that progress in an entrepreneurial environment must be measured and accounted for differently than the more frequent "next versions", is well-supported by example. I highly recommend this book to get a new perspective on what you do every day at work!
