Daniel Berman's publications have spanned a broad range of subject matter and disciplines but always with the goal of making a worthy topic interesting and accessible to readers.
His work as a credit counselor in the 1980s led to publication in 1988 of his first book on consumer credit, which the American Library Association called "a thorough and enlightening primer on a subject of interest to most Americans."
In his new book on the U.S. credit system, Dan brings to bear his training as an investigative news reporter and a social science Ph.D., presenting the results of meticulous research in an easy-to-read and entertaining format.
This 2012 publication is envisaged as the first in a series on consumer credit, catering to a variety of specialized audiences, in several different languages.
Dan lives with his wife Anny in the San Francisco Bay Area, where they operate a real estate brokerage based on a new and innovative model. In their spare time, they enjoy exploring the area's many cultural offerings and natural beauty.
