Roger Lowenstein on Searching for Warren Buffett
This week in our Masters in Business interview radio podcast, we speak with Roger Lowenstein, author of six books, including the award-winning "When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management." His latest is "America's Bank: The Epic Struggle to Create the Federal Reserve." (He is also a director of the Sequoia Fund.)
Lowenstein discusses his research and writing process. He started out as a local reporter, and spent 15 years at the Wall Street Journal, including two years writing the storied Heard on the Street column.
Lowenstein wrote one of the first book profiles of a then less-known manager named Warren Buffett; his discussion of his time interviewing people in Omaha about "little Warren" is mandatory listening.
