Reviews

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 Time is 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."
