Book Review: 'The Inventor'

W. E. Gutman is a sophisticated writer. Not a surprise for someone whose bio describes him thus: "Born in Paris, educated in France, Romania and Israel, Gutman is a widely published veteran journalist. Between 1991 and 2006, he covered politics, the military, human rights and other socio-economic issues in Central America. Gutman was formerly the international editor of the futurist New York-based magazine, "Omni" and U.S. editor of the Moscow-based magazine, "Science in the USSR."

Review: 'How I Learned to Drive'

Whether through "funny" or "message" or both, The SCV Space in Saugus seems, so far, to be encouraging us to think.
