To keep up to date on the needs of web developers for his recent books, Danny is also a programming consultant to some of the industry's top intranet development groups and corporations. His expertise in implementing sensible cross-browser client-side scripting solutions is in high demand and allows him to, in his words, "get code under my fingernails while solving real-world problems."
Danny was born in Chicago, Illinois during the Truman Administration. He earned a B.A. and M.A. in Classical Antiquity from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He moved to California in 1983 and lives in a small San Francisco area coastal community, where he alternates views between computer screens and the Pacific Ocean.
"I like the cookbook style because it provides an on going resource for future coding projects. The book is useful right away and will be in the future when I am ready to try the more ad-vanced projects."

"I confess to being in the early stages of sophisticated web page development. Having made this confession, I have to say that Danny Goodman has done a stellar job revising and updating this book. He has written a cookbook that can appeal to web developers at all levels, even mine. His approaches to each of the 150 or so recipes for successful debugging/fixing are both rich and straightforward."

"Definitive reference fits this title to a "T". Every tag is covered in detail, providing practical description for both the tag and every property along with a practical example. This is most definitely a must have for any developer dealing with dynamic HTML, which is increasingly an important part of site development. "
