Danny Goodman is the author of The Complete HyperCard 2.2 Handbook, an all-time bestseller and winner of the "best book" award from the Computer Press Association. His AppleScript Handbook, currently in its second edition, is the book most often recommended by experienced scripters. At the end of an article on a third-party script editor in MacWeek magazine, reviewer Don Crabb rated the AppleScipt Handbook "excellent." The second edition covers not only the basics of AppleScript, but in-depth coverage of scripting the Finder and how to interpret the scripting dictionaries of scriptable applications. AppleScript is an important facet of the new Apple OS 8.5.
Author of more than 20 computer trade books, he has written extensively for MacWorld and MacUser magazines. Outside of work, Mr. Goodman enjoys playing his grand piano, model railroading, and scanning the airwaves as an amateur (ham) radio enthusiast.
