Review by

Don't Panic is a wonderfully written, inspiring and touching biography of Douglas Adams, told by the people who worked with him and drawn together by Neil Gaiman. This book provides perspective on the work, and on Adams himself, that make hitchikers itself an even better read. A must-read for any hitchhikers fan.

Review by

A fascinating look at Douglas Adams' life (a bit) and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (a lot). It was most fascinating for revealing the tortured process that Adams underwent in writing his books, plays and radio programs. Perhaps not a book for anyone except Hitchhiker's fans, this is still well written and a fascinating look at the writer and his works.
