“Some people may be more gifted than others, but excellence in writing, as in any art form or craft, involves discipline and practice.”
James B. Stewart, Follow the Story: How to Write Successful Nonfiction

“As he told Hill, he was simply following the “Eight ‘P’s,” a mnemonic that had been drummed into them in the military: “Proper prior planning and preparation prevents piss-poor performance.”

The Real Heroes Are Dead Article from The New Yorker.”
James B. Stewart

“Fifty years passed between the scandals of the 1920s and their counterparts in the 1980s. If Wall Street escapes another major threat to its integrity for even half as long, the crackdown that culminated in Milken’s conviction will have proven of historic value.”
James B. Stewart, Den of Thieves
