What made you write the book?
It was a story that must be told.
Why is your book especially important now?
What is the single most important thing readers of your book will be able to do after reading your book?
Do you have top 5-10 list of tips, tricks, and/or best practices?
No. I don't believe that quality is obtained from tricks. Good programs come from thoughtful, knowledgeable use of tools.
Who is your intended audience?
Is there anything that you feel is especially important that the readers would want to know about you or the book?
The book is short, but dense. I, on the other hand, am tall.
How important is the subject matter of your book?
The subject matter of this book couldn't be less important, unless you happen to be developing web applications, in which case it is critically important.
Is there anything in the news right now that affects or is reflected in your book, or is related to the subject of your book?
Are there any anecdotes about writing the book, or how you became involved in the subject?
I was going to write this book in 2001, but I didn't because in that post-bubble period, there didn't appear to be demand for it. That changed with the Ajax Resurgence in 2005.
Do you write regularly for any publications in this field?
In researching the book, did you come across any surprising facts, figures, or statistics that the press might be interested in?
Surprisingly, facts have very little to do with web development.
