Dan Gutman
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Keep it simple, and never make the same mistake twice.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I don't think there's any such thing. It's human nature to always want what we don't have, so if we ever achieved perfect happiness, we would want something ELSE. People are funny that way. I'm perfectly happy right now, but I'm always looking to make myself a better person anyway.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. Al Gore

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Turning reluctant readers into enthusiastic readers

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I am terrible at socializing in large groups.
