    Question

    What book has had the most significant impact on your life?

    Robert Jordan

    The King James version of the Bible. That seems a cliche, but I can't think of any other book that has had as large an impact in shaping who I am.

    Question

    You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD—what are they?

    Robert Jordan

    The one book would be whatever book I was currently writing. I mean, I hate falling behind in the work. The one CD would contain the best encyclopedia I could find on desert island survival. The DVD would contain as much of Beethoven, Mozart, and Duke Ellington as I could cram onto it.

    Question

    What is the worst lie you've ever told?

    Robert Jordan

    It's hard to think of one since I am genetically incapable of lying to women and that takes out 52% of the population right there.

    Question

    Describe the perfect writing environment.

    Robert Jordan

    Any place that has my computer, a CD player for music, a comfortable chair that won't leave me with a backache at the end of a long day, and very little interruption.

    Question

    Who is the one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with?

    Robert Jordan

    My wife before anybody else on Earth living or dead. That's a no-brainer.

    Question

    If you could have one superpower what would it be?

    Robert Jordan

    That depends. If I'm feeling altruistic, it would be the ability to heal anything with a touch, if that can be called a superpower. If I'm not feeling very altruistic, it would be the ability to read other people's minds, to finally be able to get to the bottom of what they really mean and what their motivations are.
