While it is not exactly mandatory to read the books in order to enjoy or get into them, I think it is good that people start the series from there to get some of the bigger scope of Bank's universe (plus its a pretty damn good book. period).

That said, I consider the Use of weapons the best and most moving I have read so far and Excession the most "blockbuster" flashy and entertaining crowd pleaser (not to imply anything about its quality). What I am driving at is: yes do start with Consider Phlebas but keep in mind that it gets even better
