Foreword by Clyde Haberman
As one of the preeminent interviewers of our time, Claudia Dreifus crisscrosses the globe to interview an eclectic selection of the world's most powerful and interesting women and men, the people whose opinions will shape our future. Dreifus's interviews, by the subjects she chooses and the questions she asks, depict her own forceful vision of our times, as well as that of those she interviews.
