Reviews - What do customers think about Hitchhiker's Guide (Pocket Essential series)?

Bare bones history...  May 21, 2008
This book traces the history of the radio show, the books, the television series, and the movie. Lists of caste members, media reactions to the shows and quotes from important people. A slim, bare bones guide to the Hitch Hiker's Guide and all its forms. Don't look for photos or long, detailed, essays on the meaning of life, Zaphod Beeblebrox, or the Heart of Gold. Good to have if you want a background history on Douglas Adam's work in radio, TV and the printed media.
