    I'm in the process of reading _Galileo's_Daughter_, which is an excellent
    book that tells the story of Galileo using the letters to him from his
    daughter, Suor Marie Celeste. It does a terrific job of setting the
    context for Galileo's troubles, but also the problems faced by proponent's
