Danny Goodman

Danny Goodman has been writing about personal computers and consumer electronics since the late 1970s. In 2006, he celebrated 25 years as a freelance writer and programmer, having published hundreds of magazine articles, several commercial software products, and three dozen computer books. Through the years, his most popular book titles on HyperCard, AppleScript, JavaScript, and Dynamic HTML have covered programming environments that are both accessible to non-professionals, yet powerful enough to engage experts. His Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference, now in its third edition, is an O'Reilly bestseller.

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."
--Bob Grant, Manatee Computer News, June 2009, Volume 23, Issue 6

"JavaScript & DHTML Cookbook, 2nd edition offers easily-digested solutions to specific scripting problems in Java, making it a 'must' for any library already strong in Java programming references...An outstanding reference addition."
--James Cox, The California Bookwatch

"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."
--John R. Clark, TCM Reviews

"Of course, this is a reference book, so there's limited cohesion in the examples. There is no theme to follow and re-create a full-featured DHTML web site. But the book is intended to be a reference. There are other books for step-by-step DHTML development. Likewise, this is a comprehensive reference, and therefore quite a thick book. There are separate CSS and JavaScript references available (also very handy), but this single volume packs a lot of punch."
--Kirk Holbrook, Maine Flash Platform User Group

"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. "
