Erik Larson On Ideas

This is a great Wall Street Journal interview Erik Larson gave back in March of this year where they ask how he gets his inspiration. He also gives a little inside baseball on the publishing industry and what he his process is when forming his projects. It’s a lot of information in two questions!

Follow this link to walk the video. I couldn’t just put┬áthe video here due to the WSJ’s website code. There is an ad, wait for it to pass and you’ll get to the interview. It is 5 minutes long.
