He is married and lives in Greenwich.

I couldn't put it down.

The story of the discoveries of Uranus and Neptune is told in The Neptune File: Planet detectives and the discovery of worlds unseen by Tom Standage (Allen Lane, 2000).

Still, an enjoyable read. Beyond Pluto: Exploring the outer limits of the solar system by John Davies (Cambridge, 2001) tells the story of the discovery of the Kuiper Belt and transNeptunian objects.
