Did you ever wish you had a collection of these blog posts, all semi-organized in one quasi-coherent document? No? Well, you can get one anyway. My posts from the very first in May, 2014 up through June, 2017 have been collected in a single volume, called The Perfect Planet, now available here.

Wooooooo!!! At last!


There is, however, good news and bad news.

Good news: It is a rich compendium of my interpretations, speculations, and scientific opinions over a three-year period.

Bad news: How egotistical and self-important do you have to be to think anyone would want such a thing?


Good news: In The Perfect Planet you get JDP unfiltered by nit-picky grammar monkeys and uncensored by the scientific establishment.

Bad news: That’s because the “book” is self-produced, with no peer review and no professional copy-editing or production.


Good news: It is absolutely free (though in the form of a reduced-resolution compressed pdf file)!

Bad news: It might well be worth exactly what you pay for it.


The Perfect Place is published by Copperhead Road Geosciences, my consulting firm that is currently inactive. It is not copyrighted, and has no ISBN. It is available for download from Researchgate.
