Lowenstein discusses what his research and writing process is like. The author of 6 books started out as a local reporter, eventually moving on to spending 15 years at the WSJ, including several years writing the storied Heard on the Street column.

Lowenstein wrote one of the first profiles of a then little known manager named Warren Buffett; his discussion of his time meeting and interviewing the people of Omaha about “little Warren” is absolutely must listening.
