Mike Brown is an engaging scientist from Caltech. But this book is incorrectly titled and misleading. It includes a great deal about his personal life - especially his obsessive interest in his newborn daughter, Lilah - and very little about planetary science, and the decision to demote Pluto and the (very minor) role that Brown played in it. Pluto fans: read "Pluto Files" by Neil deGrasse Tyson, instead of this.
