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!!

A great post reading interview

This is a nice summary of Crichton's motivations in writing this book. Short and sweet.

Great perspective on the environment.

This is a free interview on his controversial view of global warming. It's smart, scientific, enlightening and entertaining.

Open me first!

Crichton's "State of Fear" faced a lot of criticism when it first came out, and today is widely neglected and dismissed. But if you listen to this interview before starting the book, you'll have a much better idea where the author was coming from. He isn't dissing the environmental movement or the idea of global warming. He's warning us about the kind of groupthink through which politicans, lawyers and the media control society by uniting us against a common threat that may or may not be real. In a time where "fake news" is heard daily, it's worth your time.

Thought provoking as usual

As relevant now as it was then. Prophet Crichton. Do listen to see where we are going wrong as a species.
