I'm finally reading Dr. Tom Van Flandern's book, "Dark Matter, Missing Planets and New Comets."

This promises to be iconoclastic science writing at its most lucid. The strange thing is that I consider myself reasonably knowledgeable about Van Flandern's ideas. I write about them in my book. I've been published in his research journal. I browse his website. But I've never actually read the book that started it all -- and for me that's a painful admission. So it's nice to finally get my hands on the intellectual "source code."
