East Meets WestWe have a rare treat for biography lovers this week!  First up, John Adago, author of "East Meets West," the stories of the remarkable men and women from the East and the West who built a bridge across a cultural divide and across the centuries, and introduced Meditation and Eastern Philsophy to the West ( and yes, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is one of the featured teachers.) Check out thejourneyback.net for more information on the author and this many subjects.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."
