"It's all devastatingly true - except the bits that are lies. - Douglas AdamsDon't Panic celebrates the life of an ape-descended human called Douglas Adams who, in a field in Innsbruck in 1971, had an idea.This is also the story of what that idea became: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - the original radio series which started it all, and the five book trilogy', the TV series, almost-film, computer game, towel and website that followed.

4.0 Don't Panic. Douglas Adams & The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - Neil Gaiman

3.0 Don't Panic: The Official Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Companion
