Today's guest is Peter Guzzardi, a legendary book editor who worked with Stephen Hawking on "A Brief History of Time," Susan Cain on "Quiet," and Deepak Chopra on "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind," just to name a few.

In this episode we chat about what exactly an editor's role is in the publishing process, the timeless wisdom contained in the Wizard of Oz, and Peter shares his story of a chance encounter with lasting impact.

We had some Internet issues during this call, which took place in the middle of his book tour. It's a little wonky towards the beginning and again at the end, but crystal clear for the vast majority. I think you'll find Peter's warmth and insight transcends the occasional audio blip.
