No Better Time

Our second guest, Molly Knight Raskin, is a journalist and former writer/producer for the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. You may never have heard of her subject, Danny Lewin, but you will wonder why not. Danny grew up in the US and Israel, became a member of an elite counterterrorism unit in Israel, came to MIT to study abstract math, and co-founded one of the early dot-com companies that tranformed the internet. And, he was most likely the first victim of the 9/11 attacks when he was fatally stabbed while attempting to stop the terrorists on one of the planes that flew into the World Trade Center. The book is titled "No Better Time."
