Book summary

Packed with an Astounding Amount of New and Never-Before-Collected Material.

Why are people born? Why do they die? Why do they want to spend so much of the intervening time wearing digital watches?

No one but Douglas Adams could have pared lifes meaning down to these three questions, and they remain as inspired and head-scratchingly clever today as they did twenty-five years ago when they appeared in the first edition of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Showcasing his quick wit, comic genius, and wide-ranging intelligence, Hitchhikers has become nothing less than a cult classic and cultural phenomenon.

To celebrate its quarter century and the extraordinary legacy of Adams, this gorgeously designed, mostly harmless deluxe edition gathers never-before-collected photographs, original artwork, memorabilia (from the strange to the sublime), and wisdom gleaned from a first read or first encounter as Douglass friends remember how the galaxy was forever changed a mere twenty-five years ago (not to mention the original text of the novel) into a one-of-a-kind Guide as stunning as two suns setting over Magrathea.

Whether you are well versed in the antics of Arthur Dent, a mild-mannered Earthman plucked from his planet seconds before its demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, and Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy posing as an out-of-work actor, or are hitching a ride for the first time, this is the book that has everything youll nee to know about anything.So please do not be alarmed. Definitely dont panic. Just be sure to grab a towel. [via]
