Description:
No Better Timetells of a young, driven mathematical genius who wrote a set of algorithms that would create a faster, better Internet. It’s the story of a beautiful friendship between a loud, irreverent student and his soft-spoken MIT professor, of a husband and father who spent years struggling to make ends meet only to become a billionaire almost overnight with the success of Akamai Technologies, the Internet content delivery network he cofounded with his mentor.

Danny
Based on extensive original research and interviews, a riveting personal and high-tech story, with a heartbreaking 9/11 coda
Kirkus Reviews, 8/1/13
“Bittersweet but celebratory.”

Booklist, 9/1/13
“Little-known but thoroughly captivating life story… A superlatively written and well-deserved tribute to an overlooked internet pioneer and true American hero.”

Tablet Magazine, 9/11/13
“[A] terrific new biography.”

Winnipeg Free Press, 9/9/13
"No Better Timeis the chronicle of a man who gave his life to technology and gave his life for mankind."

The Daily Beast, 9/17/13
“This is Lewin’s fascinating biography, but it is also a history of the Internet, and those who took it from clunky dial-up service to the speed-of-light marvel. It is also the story of the September 11 attacks themselves, and how they ground the exuberance of the 1990s to a halt. Raskin has meticulously reconstructed the buoyancy of the ’90s dot-com boom, and her restraint in covering the attacks lends a sober poignancy to Lewin’s story.”

BusinessInsider.com, 11/7/13
“Awesome…I recommend it for any entrepreneur out there either working on a company or thinking about starting a company… Molly Knight Raskin, writes beautifully, deeply, and thoughtfully. She combines an origin story (for Akamai), a coming of age story (for Lewin), and a tragedy (for Lewin, his family, his extended family, and Akamai.) …[A] great biography of an entrepreneur, his company, and his all too short life.”

Jewish Review of Books, Winter 2013
“An engaging tale of a continent-straddling and action-packed but all-too-short life. Raskin’s story of one man’s stunning success also elicits a nostalgia for the excitement of those years—when the Internet was new.”
Molly Knight Raskin is a Columbia School of Journalism graduate who has reported forScientific American Mind,Psychology Today, theWashington Post, theBaltimore Sun, and theNewsHour with Jim Lehrer. Her television credits include two PBS documentaries. She lives in Washington, DC, with her husband and two daughters.
