Over at wowOwow.com, the 32-year-old NY Times reporter spoke about his reporting adventures while writing “his new book, “Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System–And Themselves.” The interview features some casual bombshells like this one about the insular world of high finance: “I mean … 30 people [are] running the world, and they are all mostly men, with very few exceptions.” The interview will make almost any writer feel like a slacker…
Here’s an excerpt from the interview: “I had some researchers who were helping me. I used to do my writing typically from midnight to about 6:30 in the morning, like I was back in college. I used to go to the corner store near my apartment, I’d buy a two-liter bottle of diet Coke and a bag of Stacy’s chips from the same guy. He’d laugh at me every time.”
