My wife is huge into discworld and I asked her what would be the best book to get into it and she recommended Small Gods. Discworld has quite a large catalog of books with several sub-series in it so it can be quite intimidating to get into, plus some of the first books in the series aren't Terry Pratchett's best (so I'm told) so that can put off some people. From what my wife has told me, and reviews I've read of it, Small Gods pretty much stands on its own as a story (so we don't have to worry about knowing the whole disworld universe) and is one of the best examples of his work.
