Thought provoking and entertaining

The interviewer asked well-conceived questions, not the usual biographical trivia of a magazine (how many pets do you have?). It was interesting to hear how Mr Crichton came upon his intial subject, and how during subsequent research his opinions and conceptions of even larger issues were changed. I highly recommend listening to this interview before or after reading the book "State of Fear", or simply for its entertaining and thought provoking insight on how Mr Crichton develops a new book.

Excellent!

A very informative and balanced interview with Michael Crichton on his book "State of Fear", but it really goes much deeper than that. Insight is given into how the book came about and also the life decision and conclusions that Crichton arrived at after 3 years of his own intense research. Highly recommended!!
