I've only read "pump six and other stories", his collection of short stories mostly from the same universe, and I thought it was amazing.
The creativity and originality of the world and ideas he packed into those short stories was astounding, so if "The Windup Girl" flags towards the end, I recommend you give pump six a look.

Nice anecdote.

I live in the UK, and generally accept a billion to be 1e12, but assume someone means 1e9 if they're on tv or it's in their interests to exaggerate.

Doing a physics degree, a billion is always 1e12 in the lab.
