I'm currently reading through Bruce Sterling's work, so obviously I like his stuff, sort of, no matter what. This book was fun reading until the cheesy - as another reviewer says - James Bond ending. But, giving Sterling the benefit of the doubt, I just chalked it up to him thinking one day: "man, I'd really like to write a sort James Bond meets The Hacker Crackdown mashup book." Of course, that was before the term "mashup," but hey, look over there, never mind that.

I'm a fan on non-fiction bueractatic knife-fighting books - like those Woodward writes - and even liked [books: The Goal], so you can imagine the dull, paper-pusher stuff in here was interesting enough to me to make it into a page turner.

Still, coming off other Bruce Sterling sci-fi books, I missed the sci-fi stuff (hence the 3 stars instead of 4). But, hey, why pigeon-hole the guy?
