Welp, it jumped the shark once it turned into a hunt for hidden treasure. I also couldn't stand any more of the mildly offensive imperialism and sexism. I'm disappointed that a female author would write female characters like this.

“The more predictable you are, the better you will be at estimating how long something will take and the more promises you can make about your work.”
David B. Copeland, The Senior Software Engineer

Greg McKeown
“Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it’s about how to get the right things done. It doesn’t mean just doing less for the sake of less either. It is about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at our highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential.”
Greg McKeown, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

John Heilemann
“Most puzzling was his timidity. Giuliani was supposed to be a tough guy, but in the face of attacks by his opponents, his performance had been as limp as an overcooked Chinatown noodle.”
John Heilemann, Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

Greg McKeown
“A true Essentialist, Peter Drucker believed that “people are effective because they say no.”
Greg McKeown, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

John Edward Williams
“his forty-third year William Stoner learned what others, much younger, had learned before him: that the person one loves at first is not the person one loves at last, and that love is not an end but a process through which one person attempts to know another.”
John Edward Williams, Stoner
