Joseph Rain is a business owner who divides his time between London, Slovenia, and other parts of the world. He is working on an ambitious book that seeks to help us redefine and rediscover who we are through the lens of philosophy, science, and spirituality. Titled "The Unfinished Book of Who We Are," it is slated for publication in 2017.
Joseph tells us this about his life and what led him to write this book:
Mickey Mestel is an unusual product of the American Midwest. Growing up in Colorado during the 60’s and 70’s, he always felt there was something more, something else out there, but never was able to pinpoint just exactly what that something was. A rebellious youth turned in desperation to a higher education, and after graduating from Kent State University, he forsook the snow and cold of the mid-west for the more gentile clime of northern California. That and the lure of Silicon Valley to fuel the passion for computers he developed whilst at university.
