I am looking to get started in DHTML.  I know that not all features work the same in both main browsers.  So what I am looking for is a book that will give me a good overview and understanding on DHTML in general.

Well, I haven't read it, but I think that O'reilly's book:
Dynamic HTML: the Definitive Reference
The reviews on Amazon say it's really good, and from my experience O'Reilly books are usually quite good, and most people like the other works by this author (Danny Goodman).

Of course you could also just goto: www.amazon.com and search on DHTML.  You'll that book and a few others with reviews and everything (including a cheap price if you purchase through them!).

Best of luck!

That is the second book which is shown when searching on 'DHTML' on amazon.  If you check it's reviews, most people say it's a pretty good book (4.5 stars!), but it only covers internet explorer's DHTML, so you won't be able to write portable (good) code for netscape with just that book.  If you're only looking for IE compatibility then it is probably better, but the one which I mentioned supposedly does a good job of showing you both methods and how to make scripts work on both browsers.
