With Martin Benson's permission, Carl Lehmann-Haupt recorded him telling stories and leading group discussions during the last year of Mr. Benson's life. It took untold hours of effort from several close associates during the next forty years, and a couple minor miracles, for those tapes to be transcribed and edited into book form. The result is seemingly as unique and essential as its source, who, by way of example, is recorded saying, "To be put on the spot is the best position to be in."
