Actually, I would be surprised if Arnold ever read the book. Arnold was not a reader of anything not directly related to business. 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. Jerry Clark Listen to 'Strange Days...
