Publisher's Summary

In this hour, celebrated cartoonist and novelist Lynda Barry talks with Steve Paulson about her latest book. Part memoir, part comic and part activity book, What It is reflects Barry's belief that everyone is an artist and has stories to tell.

Next, James Othmer was the creative director of advertising behemoth Young & Rubicam. He tells tales of that life in his book, Adland. Othmer tells Jim Fleming about the ad he created using veterans on the fiftieth anniversary of the D-Day invasion, and we hear it.

Then, it was the best of times for Pattie Boyd. Her modeling career was booming and the sixties were exploding on the London scene. One day she got a call - she'd been cast in a Beatles film. The rest is history: she married George Harrison. Eric Clapton courted her while she was still married to Harrison, and both of them wrote songs for her. We meet the woman who inspired three of the most famous rock songs of all time, from George Harrison's "Something" to Eric Clapton's "Layla." She's just published her story, called Wonderful Tonight and tells Steve Paulson about it.

After that, James Lovelock created the Gaia Theory. His latest book is The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning. Lovelock tells Steve Paulson that our planet is a self-regulating system that will carry on without people and that it is too late to reverse global warming. Humanity will just have to live with the consequences, if it can.

And finally, Geoffrey Colvin is the author of Talent is Overrated and Fortune Magazine's Senior Editor at large. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about genius and says great performance is within the grasp of anyone who's willing to put in the right kind of practice. [Broadcast Date: September 24, 2010]

Listen to Wonderful Tonight by Pattie Boyd and Penny Junor.
