This was a request via email from Jonathan Grunert. Jonathan wanted to know more about Galileo and specifically his troubles getting published.
Galileo at Work: His Scientific Biography (Dover Phoenix Editions)
Galileo: A Life
The Galileo Project
Another really good book on Galileo’s life is the fairly recent “Galileo’s Daughter” by Dava Sobel
Concentrates on the reltionship and letters he wrote to his daughter in the convent, but goes in to detail about his life as well, from a fairly personal angle. Well written and easy to follow.
