You all definitely need to read the book; hosts and audience alike! The Phoenix Project is an easy read (it's a novel), inexpensive on Kindle, and has the fun bonus that you likely know most of the characters, because you've probably met them throughout your career. I've read it 3 times and it has changed the way I approach a bunch of things for the better.
I'm not going to give you a quote to try to win a copy because I'd rather you gave it to someone who hasn't read it yet. :)
Nice first episode, and thanks for the grammatical correctness!
