Actually, I would be surprised if Arnold ever read the book.
Arnold was not a reader of anything not directly related to

He simply trusted Ray Palmer to take care of things, which is
why he made the mistake of passing on a book offer from
Doubleday and taking Palmer's assurances that they should co-
author (or at least co-byline) a book on their own. Arnold never
saw a cent from The Coming of the Saucers. Amazingly, even so,
he didn't hold a grudge against Palmer for that.
