Fascinating Interview with Robert Caro by Charlie Rose

This interview is about 3 years old, but on the eve of publication of Caro's latest installment, it's worth watching. In anticipation I took up Master of the Senate, volume 3 of the Years of Lyndon Johnson (winner of the Pulitzer Prize). Great pros and great scene setting mark this effort. Caro mentions some of his method in the interview. He is a masterful biographer, and whether you love Lyndon (does anyone?) or hate him (too easy a judgment), this ongoing biography is a fascinating account of his life and times.
