      As for the Sobel bookling on "Longitude", entertaining though it might be,
      I think it should be read more as a romance than as a record of fact.
    
    I heartily agree.  It was good at getting people to think about Timekeeping
    and
    Clocks, but it really was too harsh on the Lunar school of thought in order
    to make Harrison out as such a hero.
