When Deepak and I spoke for the first time, we were on the air live when he interviewed me on his radio show about the book and the Epiphany project. Later we met in person when he worked with my production team in New York on one of his stellar iPhone apps. He kindly squeezed me into his incredibly crammed schedule early one morning for a phone interview. Our conversation was so brief I have to admit I was worried. But when I started reading the transcript, I realized it was totally clear, and he had just practiced exactly what he teaches by connecting with and expressing the basic, true essence of his experience.
