This book demonstrates how science gets done using humor, lively human anecdotes and a lot of late night hard work.
Mike Brown understands that whether or not Pluto is a planet is more than purely a scientific question or an emotional reaction. I appreciate that this book is user friendly for any level of scientific knowledge, and anyone can learn things about how the political/academic/social rules work as science gets done.
